As patients we have to trust that the physician who cares for us is a competent, educated, and caring individual. Why else would we schedule that appointment? Unfortunately, there are times when a doctor does not fulfill a reasonable standard of care resulting in serious harm. Some circumstances result in an immediate consequence such as a surgeon operating on the wrong body part. There are also many cases that evolve over time. A doctor may have prescribed the wrong medication and with harmful effects not materializing for some time. The misdiagnosis of a disease or malady may result in an abrupt change for the worse, or that change may occur over a longer period of time. Regardless of the time frame, if the direct negligence of your physician compromised your health, then you need to seek counsel.
The important piece for you to remember is that as a patient you are entitled to a specific standard of care by your physician. We urge you to consult with us as soon as you suspect you have been subject to medical negligence. We don’t expect you to come to us knowing all the answers—that’s our job. Our malpractice attorneys have the experience, expertise and breadth of knowledge to pursue physician malpractice cases of merit.
