Medical malpractice can happen despite medical experience
Despite years of experience, doctors and medical personnel can still make reasonable mistakes. Failure to diagnose or accurately treat illness and disease are mistakes that may cause irreparable damage and more tragically, death. When a patient visits a physician or hospital, he/she expects quality care and expertise. If these expectations are not met because avoidable mistakes were made, a patient may be entitled to compensation for medical malpractice. However, cases of medical malpractice are often lengthy and complex. Medical malpractice cases are not limited to mistakes that occur within a hospital or facility. They may involve problems that surface as a result of improper prescription of medications as well. Therefore, medical malpractice litigation requires the skill of an experienced attorney who is knowledgeable of the probable factors that may affect your case.
