Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice

Most people have heard the term “medical malpractice” at some point, but people never expect to hear it in relation to their own lives. By definition, medical malpractice simply means that a healthcare professional has been negligent, and failed to provide the standard level of treatment required of them.

In the United States, we have a culture of medicine, and medical treatment has become a regular part of our lives. Hospitals, doctor’s offices, and nursing homes are all places we go to keep our bodies healthy. From treating the common cold, to healing broken bones, we entrust healthcare professionals with our well-being and with our lives.

MOST COMMON MEDICAL MALPRACTICE INJURIES

Medical malpractice can encompass a broad range of areas, from slipping and falling at a hospital, to the most severe cases of failure to diagnose or treat an illness. Some of the most common medical malpractice injuries are:

  • Infection
  • Stroke
  • Deformity
  • Sepsis
  • Nerve Damage
  • Brain Damage
  • Death

There are simply too many examples of malpractice to list them all here. Injuries that are the result of a medical professional’s negligence can be life-altering for the victims of medical malpractice, as well as for their families.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE A MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CLAIM?

There have been many changes to the laws that govern how a medical malpractice lawsuit is handled, and these changes have turned medical malpractice into a very complex and difficult area of law. Most of the time, the burden of proof will rest on the victim or their family members.

Healthcare facilities such as hospitals and nursing homes will have teams of legal professionals and insurance adjusters dedicated to disproving any negligence by the healthcare professionals that work for them. They are well versed in providing the victims and their families with medical explanations that may lead you to believe nothing out-of-the-ordinary took place.

Your best course of action is to contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney with a proven track record winning cases like yours. Because the laws often change and are so complicated, only someone who understands the specifics involved with medical malpractice law will be capable of holding those responsible for your injuries accountable.

Unsafe Medical Device

Dangerous medical devices demand strong legal action. When companies make medical devices that put people at risk, these companies need to be held accountable for their faulty devices. From artificial hips and knees, to heart pacemakers, products are supposed to help people, but they sometimes have the opposite effect. These devices are supposed to be put through a rigorous testing process. Sadly, sometimes companies cut corners to save time and money. They put products on the marketplace before they are fully tested.

Oftentimes, the manufacturer of the defective medical device is to blame. Other times, the surgeon who installed the device did so incorrectly because he or she did not receive proper training. In some cases, the doctor who conducted a follow up examination failed to notice there was anything wrong with the medical device. Whatever scenario you’re facing, contact the Law Office of Raffi Khorozian for a free case review.

Unsafe Drugs

The pharmaceutical industry has shifted from an industry which helps people to one which desires a profit. Profit only comes with new medicinal revenue. As a result, pharmaceutical companies often attempt to increase profits by hurriedly rushing a new drug to market without taking the proper precautions. They additionally attempt to incentivize doctors and health care professionals who will boast the drug to their patients before any medical tests have proven any harmful effects of the drug.

However, this lack of testing can lead to irreparable damage which pharmaceutical companies and participating health care professionals should be responsible for.

Modern medicine has evolved to prevent serious injuries from occurring and when these drugs instead cause the injuries, it leads many of us fearful to take any helpful antibiotics. If you or a loved one have been injured by a drug, you should not be forced to pay for any medical expenses associated with your injuries.
