Medical professionals deal with life and death situations every day and may have to make decisions that will affect patients for the rest of their lives. Doctors undergo extensive education and rigorous training and must apply their skills and use sound judgment when making diagnoses or determining a course of treatment for a patient.
If a medical professional is negligent a catastrophic injury or even the death of the patient may occur. Negligence in the medical field can include:
- Surgical error
- Incorrect medication being administered or prescribed
- Birth Injuries
- Failure to diagnose
- Any serious situation that could result in patient injury or even death
If you or someone you love has been injured due to negligence on the part of a medical professional, you may be able to file a medical malpractice claim against the responsible party. Filing a medical malpractice claim can be complicated, especially because it will deal with medical records, physical conditions, what level of care should have been provided, and other related issues. This is why it is crucial to work with an attorney to determine what negligent action or inaction led to your injuries.
