About Doctor and Physician Negligence

We rely on our doctors to provide a certain standard of care, and when that standard is not met then the doctor may be guilty of negligence or malpractice.  A patient who has been injured by a doctor’s negligence has rights to compensation and proper treatment – even if treatment lasts a lifetime.

Medical negligence occurs when a health care professional acts in a negligent manner when treating a patient’s condition. Medical malpractice can be the result of incorrect actions taken by a doctor or a doctor’s failure to take medically appropriate action.

Examples of Doctor Negligence

Some instances of doctor negligence include:

  • Failure to diagnose a condition or misdiagnosis of a condition.
  • Failure to provide appropriate treatment for a condition or providing the wrong treatment (for example: providing the wrong type of physical therapy, the wrong chemotherapy, the wrong type of blood transfusion, or the wrong antibiotics and coverings for post-surgical wounds).
  • Providing the wrong medication or incorrect dose of medication.
  • Failure to treat a diagnosed medical condition in a timely manner.
  • Failure to get informed consent from the patient prior to a medical procedure that results in harm to the patient.  If a doctor does not tell a patient that a surgical procedure has a chance of paralyzing the patient for life and the  patient has the operation and becomes paralyzed as a result, the doctor can be held liable, even if the operation was performed correctly, because the patient might have refused the surgery if the risks were made known).
  • Failure to correctly administer anesthesia, to foresee interactions between anesthesia and other drugs in the patients system, or administering anesthesia to a patient who is allergic to the medicine.

Why You Need an Experienced Medical Malpractice Trial Lawyer on Your Side

In order to file a medical malpractice lawsuit, you must be able to prove that the doctor made a mistake or did not meet the standard of care, that the patient was injured, and that there is a casual link between the mistake and the injury. Suing a doctor for malpractice does not mean they will lose their medical license. Most often the doctor will continue to practice medicine normally both during and after the lawsuit, while you will receive monetary compensation for your injuries and suffering.

Medical malpractice laws are notoriously complex and confusing, so contacting an experienced lawyer immediately will be vital in receiving compensation for your suffering. They can help you collect and present all the facts of the case and guide you through the process of filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.
