Medical Malpractice Lawyers

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

The medical field is incredibly diverse and requires many abilities. In order to enter the field in any capacity, people will need at least some training and education. Many nurses and doctors spend years mastering the basics of patient care. If something goes wrong, medical professionals can be held legally liable for the resulting problems. Today’s patients have access to recourse under state laws. These laws are designed to ensure that all patients can have access to generally accepted standards of care when seeking out medical help. The standard of care is designed to make sure that anyone working in the field of medicine adheres to specific standards that are widely known and understood to be the best way to insure favorable patient outcomes. When someone goes wrong, a patient is entitled to redress under the law. Hiring medical malpractice lawyers can help anyone determine what steps they need to take to remedy the situation.

Types of Issues

Determining if a patient has a medical malpractice case can be difficult. Even if someone thinks they were harmed, this may not be the case. For example, a parent may have a medical problem that an adult child believes has not been treated according to the known standard of care. The doctor may have made minor mistakes treating their arthritis. Even if the doctor made a mistake such as giving the patient a too high dose of medication to treat pain, this does not mean the doctor may be guilty of malpractice. The error may mean the patient merely had a dose of pain meds that were slightly too high but did not cause harm. A doctor can be charged with malpractice under certain circumstances. They must have a mistake and the mistake must have caused the patient an injury.

Filing the Lawsuit

Each case is different. However, in general, many lawyers see certain types of medical malpractice that are clearly an indication of a problem on the part of the doctor. For example, a doctor may have done unnecessary surgery on the patient merely to line his pockets. The doctor may have performed the surgery when other, less invasive procedures would have served the patient equally well. Likewise, a doctor may have made a wrong diagnosis. For example, the doctor may have failed to notice the patient has cancer. Instead, they believed the patient was merely suffering from back pain. They may have also failed to notice that a case of cancer has spread from one organ to the next. In that case, the doctor’s failure led to the patient’s lack of access to effective treatment and to ongoing physical issues.

A doctor or nurse may have prescribed an inappropriate course of treatment. For example, the patient may have sought out help for a severe sunburn. If the emergency room staffers gave the patient the wrong medications or failed to make sure the sunburn was not accompanied by other issues such as heat stroke, this generally constitutes medical malpractice. The same is true of discharging a patient still in need of medical care. If a patient sought out medical treatment for a stroke but the doctor sent them away without treatment, this can be grounds for a lawsuit. The same is true if they were discharged but not given adequate aftercare instructions in instructions that were inaccurate in some way.

State Filing Deadlines

Medical malpractice cases are filed in the civil court system. The civil court system hears cases that are not considered criminal matters. People typically file civil court cases because they are seeking monetary recompense. The courts will not put someone in prison as a result of a civil court case. However, a person can be fined because they failed to meet certain standards. In addition, it is possible for a doctor or other medical professional to lose their state license.

Anyone who is considering filing a medical malpractice lawsuit should keep in mind that state civil courts ask filers to meet a deadline. It’s crucial to find out what kind of deadlines apply in any given malpractice case and why. This kind of deadline is known as a statue of limitations. Under this requirement, the injured party has only a certain time frame in order to seek relief from the court system. This is why consulting with a medical malpractice lawyer is so useful. They can help plaintiffs determine if they have a case and how best to seek legal help.
