Insurance Companies Don't Play Fair. Don't Do This Alone.

Suffolk County

we work hard for you

Doctors and other medical professionals are sworn to do good for their patients. Doctors take a Hippocratic Oath. This oath is intended to show that they aim to give the best possible care to all those who seek the benefits of their experience and training. The same is true of others such as nurses and physical therapists who may be directly involved in the person’s care. Many people enter the medical profession because they want to help people and they have what it takes to make their lives better. At the same time, doctors and others in this field, no matter how well trained are still fallible. They can make many kinds of mistakes. These mistakes can be accidental. They can also be deliberate. Doctors are under a legal obligation to perform their duties to the best of their abilities. When they don’t, they can be held liable under law.

Medical Malpractice

If a patient is harmed as a result of a medical professional’s behavior, they have direct recourse under Illinois state laws. They can bring what is known as medical malpractice case. Before filing this kind of case, it is important to know what constitutes potential medical malpractice and what does not. Knowing the sort of issues involved in this kind of potential issue can help people decide if they wish to contact Suffolk County medical malpractice lawyers and move forward with the court systems in order to seek damages.

In the first place, the patient must have an existing relationship with the doctor they intend to charge with medical malpractice. This means that there’s what is known as a doctor-patient relationship. The doctor-patient relationship is one where the patient directly hired the doctor to perform a service for them. If you are at party and you hear a doctor talking about a medical issue, this does not constitute a relationship. Even if the doctor is wrong and you decide to take detrimental actions as a result of his words.

This can be complicated. A doctor may have provided a consultation for your physician in your case. However, even if that doctor is wrong, you may not be able to sue them as you did not hire them personally. This is why it is crucial to speak with an expert lawyer who understands the specifics pertaining to the possibility of a medical malpractice lawsuit. They can help you sort out such issues before you do anything else.

Direct Negligence

In a medical malpractice case, a doctor may be guilty of what is known as negligence. Many people who go to a doctor for care do so because they are sick and need medical attention. A patient may have a minor condition that was under control but the doctor’s treatment made it worse. The patient may also have far more serious medical problems such as cancer that can cause all sorts of physical problems. In that case, the real issue is if the doctor’s actions made things worse. All patients should bear in mind that it can be very hard to prove these problems in a court of law.

For example, the patient may have been treated for advanced breast cancer. Over a period of time, the cancer may have gotten worse and caused all sorts of physical issues that are hard to detect even by experienced medical professionals. The lawyer who is pursuing this case on behalf of their client needs to indicate a specific legal standard known as more likely than not. This means the doctor or other medical professional’s actions directly led to the injury and caused their medical problems.

Types of Harm

A doctor can act poorly and cause physical problems. At the same time, even if the doctor did not act in accordance with accepted standards no injury may have happened. In that case, the patient or their loved ones cannot bring a medical malpractice lawsuit against the doctor.

For there to be a case in course, the patient must have suffered some form of harm from the doctor’s actions. This can include direct physical pain such as an OB failing to administer epidural medications properly. It also includes mental anguish and additional medical bills. If someone harms a patient’s arm during the course of setting a broken bone, this is an example of potential medical malpractice under law. Anyone who has this kind of cause should consult with a legal professional as soon as possible to pursue legal remedies.
