What is Medical Negligence?
Medical negligence occurs when a doctor or other health care provider fails to exercise a standard level of skill and care that is equal to others in the same medical specialty. Patients put great trust in doctors, but unfortunately hundreds of thousands of people die and are injured each year as a result of physician mistakes. A medical negligence and wrongful death attorney can help you fight for your legal rights so that you can receive monetary compensation for the physical, emotional and financial consequences of a physician's mistake.
What are Physician Mistakes?
Physician mistakes can take many forms, including:
- Failure to diagnose
- Failure to order necessary tests or evaluate their results
- Surgical errors such as punctures or lacerations to surrounding organs
- Prescribing the wrong dose of medication
- Leaving surgical instruments or sponges in body
- Wrong site surgery
- Anesthesia mistakes
- Radiological errors
- Unnecessary surgery
Can I Still Have A Medical Negligence Case If I Signed A Consent Form?
Many medical professionals require that an informed consent form be signed by the patient prior to proceeding with treatment. This form may acknowledge that you understand the benefits, complications and risks that may occur with a specific treatment or surgical procedure. Signing such a form does not relieve a physician from being negligent. You are still entitled to fight for your rights even if you signed a medical consent form.
