Medical malpractice may occur more frequently than you think. As Americans, we go to hospitals expecting to get cured when we get sick. However, there are numerous factors that can lead up to negligence. From overcrowded hospitals to too many patients to hastily scribbled misread prescriptions to misread tests and general screw ups, negligence on the part of medical professionals can lead to severe injury or even death.
If you think you have a case, consult a medical malpractice attorney with the Law Offices of Payas, Payas and Payas.
Do You Have a Medical Malpractice Case?
There are many deaths that have happened needlessly as a result of malpractice. Doctors normally take care to keep their patients alive, but all doctors are not created equal. For every responsible doctor who focuses and gets things right, there is an overworked doctor who allows some of their patients to slip through the cracks. While these accidents and mistakes do not happen on purpose, complications and mistakes do occur as a result of negligence. Medical professionals have the responsibility for the patient. When they mess up, it’s the patient who suffers.
Of course, individuals must make sure that the complications or deaths were really caused by the medical professional. Consult with a medical malpractice attorney and tell them the details of your case and they will give you advice on your case. If you do have a case, they will help you to proceed and file a legal claim so that your lawsuit can get moving. People win their negligence suits every day. You can be one of those compensated for their trouble and distress if you can adequately prove that a physician’s misconduct negatively impacted you or someone you love.
Medical providers provide the standard of care for their patients. When that care is not provided, the standard of care has not been met. If you as a patient or on the behalf of a patient are able to provide proof about whether standards were violated or not, you will have a case. It’s important to realize that these cases must be filed on the basis of negligence or error on the part of the medical professional– not all negative results are due to negligence. Death and injury can happen without sub-standard care occurring. Doctors do make mistakes, but sometimes they can do everything right and still lose the patient.
Before cases are filed, professionals will investigate the case and how mistakes caused the damage. Medical carelessness can cause a number of mistakes such as surgical error, misreading tests, making mistakes during delivery, malpractice and more.
