Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Our faith in our doctors is well-deserved. They train extensively, and must pass tests during licensing procedures. Yet sometimes, injuries or even death occur as a result of a medical professional’s mistakes, negligence, improper use of equipment, or failure to diagnose. When this happens, it is medical malpractice.
There are many examples of medical malpractice:
- A surgical error paralyses a patient
- A baby suffers head injuries due to a doctor’s excessive force during birth
- An elderly patient gets the wrong dosage of medication
- A patient goes into cardiac arrest after improper heart monitoring
A common type of medical malpractice is failure to diagnose. This is when a medical professional fails to treat a condition in a timely manner, or gives an inadequate diagnosis, which leads to a delay in treatment. This can lead to irreversible damage or even death.
You see a medical professional to feel better, and when health is not the final result, it can be a stressful and traumatic time. Building a case against a doctor or health care professional requires numerous procedural technicalities.
