Medical malpractice issues are very serious matters because they involve patient harm. When a patient is harmed, he or she might choose to seek compensation for the harm. The purpose of compensation isn’t just to get back at the doctor for the harm. Instead, it is meant to help lessen the financial impact that the harm has on the patient and the patient’s family.
We know that health issues caused by medical malpractice can be very serious. The long-term care that is required for some of the conditions that can occur when a doctor makes a mistake can mean that you have to spend more time than you were prepared to at the doctor’s office or in the hospital. It could mean that you have to spend money that you don’t have.
There are many different types of medical malpractice that can occur. Your doctor might not diagnose you properly, which could lead to an infection becoming worse or cancer spreading. Your doctor might not write a prescription correctly, which could mean that you get too much or too little of a medication. A surgeon might not operate on the correct body part. An anesthesiologist might not give you the correct dosage of anesthesia.
