Visiting a doctor or hospital is just a part of life. It’s something each of us does, and we generally do not expect something to go wrong. We assume the doctors will make us feel better, fix our ailments, or perhaps even prolong our lives.
What happens if you, or someone you love, is the victim of a medical mistake made by a medical professional?
Medical mistakes are a far more common problem than any of us could ever imagine. Ranging from improperly medicating a patient to failures to diagnose illnesses, and including catastrophic medical mistakes such as amputation of an improper limb or surgery being performed on the wrong body part, these types of medical mistakes can have serious consequences for the victim, even including death.
What can you do? First, you need to understand this: you have rights. Healthcare professionals have a legal responsibility to provide a certain standard of care as determined by the medical community, which means that medical mistakes can be defined as negligence in its purest sense.
Victims of medical mistakes face a lifetime of challenges that can include emotional distress, the inability to return to a normal and desired quality of life, and what seems to be an ever-growing mountain of expenses that can lead to financial unrest.
Fighting for your rights will not be easy. You are facing some of the largest organizations in the world that have entire legal teams with what seems like hundreds of lawyers and insurance adjusters on their side. The fight is complicated and arduous, particularly in states that have enacted laws aimed to protect healthcare workers and minimize their liability. You need an attorney that is experienced and more importantly has a proven track record of winning cases like yours.
