The hardest part of watching someone you love go through painful experience is watching them suffer longer than they should. When you take your loved one to the doctor there is hopefulness that comes when the doctor has all the charts in her hand. You think finally there are some answers. So when the doctor gives you some diagnosis you think that is the right answer. I mean, why wouldn’t you? They are the ones who have gone through all the education. They are the ones who should have the experience and understanding of all the issues. Yet, doctors are humans just like you and me. Therefore sometimes they get it wrong. Sometimes doctors and hospital staff get it wrong. When they get it wrong it isn’t like they gave you a burger with pickles when you specifically asked for no pickles. Instead, it can cost you your life.

The reason for medical malpractice is to not only hold the medical community accountable but to ensure that no other family has to experience the trauma that you and your family have endured. Filing g suit for medical malpractice not only helps you find justice but for all those families who maybe didn’t know what to do and the future families who would have been traumatized. There are 5 reasons for medical malpractice. The first starts with misdiagnosis.

  • Misdiagnosis: this happens when the doctors or medical staff do not use the right standard of care to treat a patient. Sometimes there are barriers like gender, age, or past medical history that may negatively influence how a doctor treats you. These factors should never be a reason for why you or a loved one should suffer through the pain that could have been resolved.
  • Injury during treatment: this can result in injury or death. This could result from an error on the documents or diagnosis again.
  • Failing To Treat Condition: There are many symptoms that fit into an array of issues. However, it is the doctor’s job to narrow down those symptoms to come up with a corrective plan no matter how tricky. A standard of care is needed for this too.
  • Poor documentation: This is also a form of misdiagnosis or fails to treat. When there is poor or inaccurate information then it leads to poor treatment.
  • Medication error: This is really scary. We have all heard the jokes about the doctor’s handwriting as chicken scratch, but this joke can truly change a person’s life.

After reading these five most common reasons for medical malpractice it may change your perspective of visiting health care provider. It should. However, it should also validate your reasons for searching for what to do about your loved one.
