When Should I File for Medical Malpractice?

Published on Nov 21, 2017 at 5:22 pm in Medical Malpractice.

If you have been injured by a negligent healthcare professional, you have the right to pursue compensation in a medical malpractice claim. However, many people may not think their situation warrants a lawsuit, or they may not be aware of their rights. Our firm provides compassionate legal assistance to those who have suffered from the carelessness of physicians and nursing staff.

In general, there are several situations where you may be able to obtain compensation for medical malpractice. These include:

  • You receive improper treatment
  • You are misdiagnosed
  • You suffer injuries during surgery or medical procedures
  • You suffer an overdose or harmful side effects from prescription drugs
  • You are not properly treated for your condition, and it worsens

Surgical errors, anesthesia errors, and misdiagnosis can result in serious injuries that require more treatment. Doctors, nurses, surgeons, medical specialists, and anesthesiologists owe a duty of care to patients. This involves providing adequate and effective treatments to improve your quality of life. If you are injured or your condition grows worse because of improper or poor medical care, you have the right to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. Depending on the situation, you may be able to receive compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost present and future wages, and other damages.
