Causes and Kinds of Medical Malpractice
What causes accidents and injuries in everyday situations causes the same
outcomes in the medical field. When doctors, surgeons, clerks, and more
ignore their duties to the patients who rely on them for sound advice
and beneficial treatments, people often leave the hospital or clinic worse
off than when they arrived. From exhaustion and an unfamiliarity with
a procedure to miscommunications and carelessness, the causes, and consequences,
of medical malpractice are varied, severe, and inexcusable.
Consequences of medical malpractice may include:
- Wrong or dangerous medicine prescribed
- Unnecessary surgeries
- Misdiagnosis or no diagnosis at all
- Conditions worsened due to unreasonable wait time
- Unexplained illnesses
- Wrongful death
Medical Malpractice Statutes: Date of Discovery
If you have filed a lawsuit for damages in the past, you are probably already
aware of statutes of limitation, or the last day you can file a lawsuit
before it becomes invalid in the eyes of the court. In New York State,
the statute is two and a half years since the onset of the injury or illness.
For many victims of medical malpractice, the real harm of the mistreatment
does not become apparent until sometime later, perhaps even
years later. A date of discovery rule has been adopted that permits someone
to file a lawsuit when the injury is discovered, or discovered to be in
direct link to some form of harmful medical treatment.
Example: You are prescribed heart medication in 2010. In 2015, you suffer
a heart attack and recent studies show the medication is likely the cause.
You may still be able to file a lawsuit despite you starting the regimen
beyond the usual statute of limitation.
The Importance of Retaining Professional Counsel
Medical malpractice cases are unlike most other personal injury claims
out there due to the sensitivity of the subject matter and who may be
at fault for what happened. As with any problem that causes unique concerns,
medical malpractice cases should be addressed by someone with a unique
set of skills dedicated to its resolution. Beyond what the average personal
injury lawyer can offer you in terms of service, you should look for someone
who has a true investigative mind and keen eye for detail, for winning
a medical malpractice claim often comes down to the facts that are the
easiest to overlook.
When you work with Rochester Personal Injury Attorney Robert King, you
will benefit from his:
Criminal defense experience: It might sound strange at first but an experienced criminal defense attorney
picks up many skills necessary to win a personal injury case. Evidence
collection is key in both forms of litigation and no shred of proof can
be passed up if you are to get the maximum compensation you deserve. Let
Attorney King take up your case and you can be sure that all the documentation,
records, and evidence required to strengthen your medical malpractice
claim will be gathered and organized.
Thoroughness: When someone throws a stone through your windshield, you and everyone else
involved essentially will know right away how much financial damage has
been caused. In a medical malpractice case, patients can suffer physically
and emotionally as they are harmed by and lose trust in the medical system.
Robert King is never satisfied until he has made certain that the compensation
you are pursuing is enough when considering all the hardships you have
had to endure due to someone else’s mistake.
Courtroom presence: Hospitals and clinics are rarely freestanding; if you bring a lawsuit
against one, they are going to be backed by a large corporation with a
dedicated team of attorneys to try to intimidate you out of your claim,
or make you settle on a lowball offer. One look at Robert King’s
case results and your opposition will know that you have prepared well for litigation
by putting a true-blue fighter in between you and them.
