When Treatment by Medical Professionals Causes Injury

Every time you visit a doctor, go to the dentist, get physical therapy, seek help in an emergency room, submit to an X-ray or other imaging process, enter a hospital for treatment or fill a prescription, you expect medical providers to adhere to well-accepted standards of care. This is your right as a patient and a consumer of medication, health-related services and medical devices.

Medical Mistakes Sometimes Cause Serious Harm

Medical treatment should improve your illness, injury or condition. Sometimes the opposite occurs. Surgery or emergency room evaluation and intervention may cause new injuries or exacerbate previous conditions. If resulting injuries are serious, additional medical bills and time off work can be costly and distressing. In the case of death, family members incur many expenses and suffer emotional pain over the unexpected loss of a loved one.
