Have you been a victim of Medical Malpractice?
If your doctor, hospital or pharmacist made a mistake, and that mistake caused you serious injury, you may have been the victim of medical malpractice.
10 Questions to Ask Yourself:
- Did you or a family member suffer a severe or permanent injury while under the care of a doctor, hospital or other health care provider?
- Did your doctor keep information from you about your medical condition or fail to disclose all the risks of your surgery, and did one of those unknown risks cause you injury?
- Did your insurance company question the appropriateness of specific procedures, tests or diagnoses which resulted in delaying your treatment or preventing you from getting the best surgery for your condition?
- Did the doctor cause appropriate medical treatment to be delayed by failing to test for and diagnose a disease in a timely manner?
- Did your doctor cause an injury to you or your baby during childbirth?
- Did prescription medication cause you injury?
- Did you suffer injury because the equipment used during medical treatment or surgery was faulty, broken or handled improperly?
- Did your doctor fail to refer you to an appropriate specialist (such as an orthopedic surgeon, neurologist or cardiovascular surgeon) and as a result your condition worsened?
- Did your doctor fail to follow up on an abnormal test result or order the proper test in a timely manner?
- Were you discharged from a hospital or from your doctor's care before you should have been, and as a result your condition or injury worsened?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have been the victim of medical malpractice. Even if you answered no, but have concerns, you still may have been the victim of medical malpractice and should contact the law firm of Younce & Vtipil to look into your specific case further.
We believe that legitimate medical malpractice claims help maintain the high quality of medical care that a patient expects. People tend to be more careful when they are held accountable for their actions. Doctors, hospitals and pharmacists are not different.
In a typical medical malpractice case, you must prove four facts:
- That the doctor or hospital was responsible for providing your care
- That an injury occurred
- That the doctor or hospital caused the injury
- That the doctor or hospital failed to provide a level of care consistent with the accepted medical standards.
