Do you have a medical malpractice claim?
When you or your loved one visits a doctor, you expect that the care will be high quality. You expect and need the attending doctors to care for you and your loved ones based on your history and required care. Whats next if that doesn't happen?
If you or a loved one receives improper care, serious injury may occur. This can be lethal or create long-term battles with health that the person would not have otherwise had.
In many situations, the injury or death may have been preventable, such as if health care workers had paid closer attention to what they were doing or had implemented better communication practices. Depending on the circumstances, issues such as these may be medical malpractice.
What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice may apply to any practitioners involved in providing health care to patients. This may include doctors, dentists, nurses and other health care professionals. In some cases, a malpractice claim may also name the facility, such as the hospital, clinic or nursing home, and its other staff who may have had a part in the action or inaction that caused you or your loved one harm.
A number of actions may fall under medical malpractice. These can include prescribing or administering the wrong prescription or dose; misdiagnosis of conditions; neglect, abuse or injuries while staying in a facility; wrongful death; and more.
