Every year, hundreds of thousands of people are injured or die because of medical errors. These errors can be the result of overwork, poor judgment, inexperience, lack of training, inadequate staffing, or just plain carelessness. These errors happen in nursing homes, hospitals, and doctor’s offices. When these errors occur, they are often devastating. Some examples of medical errors that may be caused by the negligence of a medical provider include:
Not every bad medical outcome is due to the negligence of a health care provider. People sometimes die or are injured even when they receive good medical treatment. Finding out whether you or your loved one has been a victim of medical negligence is often a difficult task. Medical records are complicated, and medical providers don’t readily acknowledge their errors. You need experienced lawyers who understand the medicine and who have relationships with medical experts.
There are also some procedural hurdles and mechanisms unique to litigating a medical malpractice case. Special notices must be given, and the case must be submitted to a Medical Malpractice Tribunal before it can proceed. Your lawyer needs to be familiar with these unique rules or you may lose a meritorious case due to procedural errors.
Choosing a lawyer carefully is especially important in a medical malpractice case.
