Medical Malpractice Law Firm

Medical malpractice can be a very serious issue indeed; should your doctor make an incorrect judgement – e.g. through choosing a riskier option than is necessary in your situation, or by diagnosing you incorrectly – this could have very serious repercussions for your health and wellbeing. Not only may it lead to longer recovery time, it could in fact mean the further deterioration of your conditions or, in rare cases, death. If you feel as though you have received a substandard level of health care, you may be entitled to compensation. The best way to approach this possibility is to contact a medical malpractice law firm, many of which will provide free consultation in order to determine whether you have a legitimate claim.

What Can I Claim For?

A list of valid claims would be virtually impossible to compose; not only would listing claims that have been successful in the past make for an extremely long and tedious read, it would also be incomplete by its very nature. As a general, there is no part of medicine that is immune to failure and neglect, and as such there is no area of medicine within which poor treatment cannot lead to a successful compensation claim. The first step in determining whether you might have a valid claim worthy of approaching a medical malpractice law firm with is to ask yourself:

1) Did you doctor fail to diagnose you (or someone whom you depend upon, e.g. a parent or partner) correctly, within a reasonable timespan?
2) Did you receive an incorrect diagnosis?
3) If your answer to either of the above was yes, then: Did this lead to unnecessary pain, suffering and/or loss of income?
4) Did your doctor fail to inform you of the risks associated with a prescribed treatment prior to prescribing it?
5) Did you suffer an injury during a medical intervention?

Answering yes to any of the above is a good indicator that you may have a valid claim, and contacting a medical malpractice law firm may be justified. However, do note that this list of questions is by no means exhaustive, and even if your answer to all of the above is ‘no’, you may have a claim. The only way to find out is to contact a medical malpractice lawyer, for example through one of the personal injury law firms that often advertise on television; including InjuryLawyers4You and National Accident Helpline, both of which offer free claims advice.

 

But Isn’t It Immoral?

This is an interesting question, and one that has two sides. On the one hand, it can be argued that suing someone who has tried to help you is immoral; on the other, suing someone who has made your situation worse when promising to make it better is not. No one would think twice before suing a homeopath whose false claims have led to the death of a loved one, and there are many cases where both doctors’ and pharmaceutical companies’ claims have led to horrific consequences. In short, whether or not it is immoral is a question that can only be answered on a per-case and personal basis, and if you think that you have good reasons to claim, you certainly have no reason to feel as though this is an immoral act. Undue pain and suffering is never justifiable.
