When you visit the doctor, you tend not to think to have more on your mind than the competency of the medical staff. You visit clinics and hospitals to get the help you need and deserve, but unfortunately, not everyone is lucky enough to have a good experience with it.
Although many medical procedures take place without any problems, things do go wrong, and when they do, the consequences may be severe. Learning about medical malpractice is important to keep yourself covered in the unfortunate event that it happens.
What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice refers to any action where medical professionals fail to provide you with the adequate care promised. This can refer to many different situations, including:
- Misdiagnosis Failure to Diagnose
- Surgical Errors (Unnecessary surgeries)
- Misreporting Lab Results
- Wrong medications (or wrong doses)
- Poor Bedside Manner
- Inadequate Testing
- Ignoring clear concerns, symptoms, or patient history
Are Medical Malpractice Cases Worth It?
If you are a victim of medical malpractice, you should contact a lawyer immediately. There is no reason why you should not seek compensation for things going wrong. Your health is important, and the medical industry must adhere to a certain standard of success.
It’s also imperative to keep in mind that hospitals already factor medical malpractice suits into their finances. When you sue a hospital for malpractice, they have special insurance to help cover the costs. In fact, medical professionals like doctors and nurses must have insurance to practice.
In one of our recent cases, our team member, Andrew Moak, helped our client receive a $5,000,000 payout. While you can’t put a price on your health and peace of mind, having the money is incredibly helpful. Compensation is something you deserve (and something you may need if you face a lifetime of consequences due to medical malpractice).
