Any time that you are treated by a physician, you have the expectation that you will be treated according to a certain set of standards. Your doctor’s oath requires that they do their very best to treat you, including physical treatments, drugs they administer, and/or operations they perform. However, medical errors or a lack of proper care being given happen all too frequently. When these errors or maltreatment occur, it is considered medical malpractice and can have legal ramifications.
You may have been the victim of medical malpractice if any of the following occurred:
- Condition worsened because of medical errors
- Pharmaceutical errors
- Lack of diagnoses
- Slow to diagnose which caused a worsened condition
- Surgical errors
- Dangerous drugs
- Defective medical devices
- Nursing home neglect
- Wrongful death
Medical malpractice can even occur because a physician is over-worked and his/her exhaustion caused a bad diagnosis. Any suffering or worsening of a condition caused because a physician didn’t perform to the level they’re expected to is considered medical malpractice.
