We give our deepest condolences for your loved one’s loss. It’s unfair for them to suffer in a doctor or nurse’s hands that were supposed to bring healing, not death.
Their negligence doesn’t just affect the victim: it ripples into your family. You and your kids will deal with the devastating effects of medical malpractice. These include unexpected funeral costs, medical expenses, and other death-related bills.
If you are in this situation, your family’s livelihood depends on whether you have a legal case and whether a judge would accept it.
We want to tell you about what makes for a medical malpractice lawsuit and how to prove it in probate. This is a confusing and traumatic time for you and your relatives, so we want to ease you into the topic.
Early Signs of a Medical Malpractice Case
The kinds of newsworthy medical malpractice claims you may have heard of are often the extreme cases.
For instance, a doctor could have amputated someone’s arm by mistake or ignored a victim’s vital signs during a life-threatening surgery.
However, we believe most potential cases are subtle and hospitals will pass them off with “internal investigations”. You shouldn’t believe these claims since medical institutions pull them to protect their public image.
The doctor didn’t consider your medical concerns
Don’t always assume that a doctor who ignores your concerns is committing medical malpractice. But if they never deal with a medical condition or symptom you’ve brought up several times, there is cause for concern.
Treatment caused negative consequences the doctor never addressed
Your loved one’s doctor is responsible for all aspects of their care, including how medical treatments perform. They must consider prescription side effects and be responsible for how they affect the victim.
Someone on the medical team admitted fault
A clear red flag is when a staff member divulges blame on themselves or a doctor for a medical error. No matter what the hospital says, you should consider pursuing a medical malpractice lawsuit and take the matter seriously.
The facility is understaffed
Hospitals with less staff than required can create unnecessary medical negligence and life-or-death mistakes. The executive staff may have overwhelmed your loved one’s doctor with too many patients, creating fatal ramifications.
Types of Medical Malpractice
From the diagnosis all the way to the surgery, a doctor or nurse has a=the potential to make a decision that results in your loved one’s death. These touchpoints mark the different types of medical malpractice.
If you have experienced any of the following symptoms, take great caution in how you proceed with the situation. There is a high probability that the doctor’s negligence could earn you legal compensation.
You should consult with a medical malpractice lawyer that can give legal advice on whether you have a case or not.
A medical professional could have misdiagnosed, failed to diagnose, or delayed a diagnosis for a life-threatening condition.
Despite the lack of malicious intent, your family is still eligible to earn a settlement for the emotional and financial suffering you’d endured.
When a doctor makes one prescription request but accidentally writes the wrong dosage, it could end your loved one’s life.
These are the extreme medical malpractice lawsuits you’re familiar with, such as birth deaths or anesthesia errors from surgery.
