What is Improper Treatment?

Many patients find it difficult to question their doctors’ judgment. After all, medical professionals have completed years of education and training. Patients rely upon that training when they put their health and lives in their doctor’s hands. But doctors, and hospitals, like everyone else, can make mistakes, and sometimes do make mistakes. Those mistakes can include improper treatment.

Recovering from a serious injury or illness can be difficult, even with the proper medical care and treatment. However, when a medical professional administers inadequate or improper treatment, your recovery can be slowed and your health put in danger. From delaying actual treatment to forcing patients to endure unnecessary surgeries, improper treatment can pose a serious risk of health complications.

Types of Improper Treatment

Improper treatment occurs under any circumstance in which a medical professional does not correctly handle a patient’s health condition. Annually, there are thousands of people who are injured or killed by improper medical treatment. Common types of improper treatment include:

  • Failure to properly diagnose a medical condition
  • Misdiagnosis of a medical condition
  • Failure to properly treat a patient’s medical condition
  • Problems with anesthesia administration
  • Failure to manage a pregnancy or deliver a baby in a safe manner
  • Failure of a nurse or other staff member to keep a treating physician up-to-date on a patient’s condition
  • Failure to administer medications properly
  • Failure to protect a patient from a fall or other injury on hospital property

In these situations, victims of improper treatment may be entitled to financial compensation to help with their additional medical bills and recovery time.

Was I Improperly Treated?

The first step toward knowing if you have suffered improper treatment is to consult with an experienced attorney who understands these types of cases. It can be incredibly difficult for people without a thorough understanding of medical malpractice law to determine legal eligibility in cases like these, and even more difficult to successfully argue a case. As such, the assistance of an experienced legal professional can be invaluable to those who have suffered harm after receiving improper treatment.

Representing victims of medical negligence requires an excellent understanding of medicine; access to physicians who are willing to review potential cases and prepared to testify when the facts have merit; experience with the unique legal principles, court rules and laws that apply to this specialized field of law; and tenacity in rooting out the facts often hidden behind objections, failed recollections, and misleading responses. It also requires an appreciation and sensitivity to the devastating effects of medical malpractice upon not only the injured victim but also upon family members.

Our lawyers devote equal care and attention to the damages elements of your case. Our goal is to make sure that you recover the compensation you need to cover the full value of your losses. In the catastrophic and fatal injury cases we see, the damages we can prove are usually measured in the millions of dollars.
