Medical Negligence Claims
Medical malpractice takes place when a person is injured because a doctor has wrongfully diagnosed or improperly treated that patient’s medical condition. For example, malpractice might have occurred if a doctor failed to prescribe a certain type of medication, or a hospital’s staff neglected to perform a specific battery of tests in order to make a complete medical evaluation.
It is important to note, however, that just because a person was injured does not mean that a medical malpractice error has occurred. Although in certain instances, the error is clearly evident, in most cases there are complicated medical issues that need to be completely evaluated before determining whether medical malpractice occurred.
This is why it is important that you speak with an experienced medical malpractice lawyer who understands this particular field. A malpractice attorney can identify whether you have a malpractice claim, and is able to represent you in a manner that ensures you obtain the most successful outcome for your case. Everyone makes mistakes. However, when a doctor or hospital makes a mistake it can have catastrophic results. As insurance companies and health maintenance organizations (HMO) increasingly pressure doctors to treat patients both more quickly and more inexpensively, medical negligence has become an increasing problem.
