When it comes to their health, most people don’t think twice about putting their lives in the hands of highly trained medical professionals. That’s why when it comes down to treatment options patients tend to not ask important questions and go ahead with whatever has been prescribed to them. While most healthcare professionals are well equipped to avoid any sorts of mistakes, there are times when mistakes are made. When that occurs, the patient may receive unnecessary and expensive treatments, further injuries, or severe illnesses.
Medical malpractice can occur at any level of the health industry from doctors to support staff and under no condition is it excusable. You shouldn’t have to worry about going to the doctor and leaving worse off than when you came, but if it comes down to it, finding proper legal representation is vital to making sure that you are sufficiently compensated for your expenses and damages.
Types of Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice involves injuries arising out of the negligent care or treatment by medical providers and can cause substantial and life-changing personal injury.
Common causes of medical malpractice include:
- Anesthesia errors
- Incorrect diagnoses
- Emergency room errors
- Surgical errors
- Unnecessary treatments
- Improper dosages
- Failure to diagnose
Given the fact that there are many factors involved in medical malpractice, Minnesota state law requires that affidavit of merit be signed by a qualified medical professional confirming that at least one medical professional has made a mistake in your claim.
The process may be lengthy and require a full investigation given the severity of the claim. Our firm carefully evaluates each claim to understand how this unjust negligent behavior occurred and to determine if it was at all preventable. You need someone on your side, and we’re here to help.
Deaths per person and per mile traveled has also increased, leading experts to believe that dangerous driver behaviors such as distracted driving may account for this drastic increase in accidents.
