There are certain things you come to expect when you go to the doctor. First and foremost, you expect to get answers to questions you have about your health. Whether those questions center around a diagnosis or a treatment plan, you trust the medical professional to provide thoughtful and informed answers.
When many folks think of medical malpractice, what comes to mind are operating room horror stories. Although a large number of medical malpractice cases involve surgical mistakes, there are also a number of cases that result from a misdiagnosis or due to carelessness that took place in a routine doctor’s visit. For example, if your doctor prescribes you the wrong medication or dosage for a condition and you are harmed after taking that medication as directed, you may have a medical malpractice case.
