The expectation is that our doctors, surgeons, nurses and other healthcare professionals act in a professional manner and in accordance with their guidelines and standard of care. That is their legal obligation, and when any departure from those industry practices take place it can become a serious medical malpractice claim. The result of such carelessness or neglect can have dire consequences, including injury or death.
Medical malpractice claims can most typically arise from:
- Failure to diagnose
- Failure to provide adequate care
- Pharmacy errors
Unfortunately, people don’t think that they have a say when it comes to their healthcare treatment and don’t believe there is recourse when something goes wrong. The truth is that medical malpractice can strike anyone, from newborns being delivered to senior citizens. The emotional toll can be just as serious as the physical trauma and the damage can be far reaching. It can include lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and the cost of any treatment and physical therapy.
