Medical Malpractice Attorney
Doctors are very important in keeping us healthy. When we are sick or injured we rush to our doctors to take care of us and make us better and most of the time that is exactly what they do.
For years we have heard on TV that patients and their attorneys are driving the cost of medical care up and our doctors are fleeing the state. As you know by now this is simply not true. Doctors are busier than ever and unfortunately sometimes the care they provide falls short of the standard they are required to live up to. When this happens, you have a very short window to make sure your rights are protected.
Medical Malpractice can be committed by any person in the chain of healthcare including doctors, radiologists, lab technicians, nurses, chiropractors, dentists, eye doctors, etc. What are some common types of medical malpractice:
- Improper diagnosis
- Mistake during surgery
- Performing procedures that are not needed
- Improper reading of lab results
- Improper reading of MRI, CT, or X-ray
- Improper reading of test results
- Improper cleanliness which leads to infection
- Operating on wrong body part
Doctors and other healthcare providers can, and should, be held accountable for the consequences of their negligence.
