What To Do When Doctors Misdiagnose? File A Medical Malpractice

On Behalf of | Nov 17, 2018 | Medical Malpractice

At Licata & Yeremenko, A Professional Law Corporation, our medical malpractice lawyers have robust experience handling claims that relate to medical malpractice. Malpractice occurs when the professional fails to perform their duties or there is fraud and/or misrepresentation. If we all had the time or intellect to know everything then we wouldn’t have the need for specialists. But, we know that it isn’t possible to know everything. So we must rely on professionals for guidance and understanding about things we know little about. This is particularly true for those in the medical profession. At times we treat doctors like gods, and in many ways, they are because they truly save lives on a daily basis.

However, they aren’t gods. Doctors are just as human as their patients. They make mistakes and they sometimes fail their patients. When that happens you, as a patient, have the legal right to challenge the care you received through a medical malpractice lawsuit.

The medical field has a myriad of specialties. Each type of medical profession has been in at least one lawsuit, either by group or individually. The leading reasons doctors are sued are for misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose, and patients suffering an abnormal injury. Other reasons for patients to sue their doctors are failing to treat, poor documentation of patent instruction or education, errors in medical administration, failure to follow safety procedures, and improperly obtaining consent. If are searching for information about medical malpractice, odds are you or a loved one has experienced at least one of those situations. Our California medical malpractice attorneys at Licata & Yeremenko, A Professional Law Corporation are here to help.
