What are some common medical errors?

There are many good doctors who make mistakes, but even they must be held accountable for their errors. If someone learns from a mistake, it's possible to prevent injuries to others in the future. If the mistake is severe enough, it's possible the medical provider should not be licensed.

Physician-patient privilege may be waived for your case

If someone you love passes away due to mistakes made at a hospital or by a physician, then your family may be entitled to compensation through a wrongful death claim. One thing you may find troublesome is that there is physician-patient privilege that could make it hard to obtain your loved one's medical records.

Can you file a lawsuit if you suffer from a misdiagnosis?

If you suffer from a misdiagnosis, it can easily change your life. For example, if you had an early stage of cancer that was misdiagnosed, then the diagnosis you do receive could happen so much later that it's too late to receive treatment at all.

Proving fault: Starting a medical malpractice case

When you suffer at the hands of a medical practitioner, it's your right to pursue a medical malpractice case. This case can help you get the compensation you need for further medical care and to help you recover what you've already spent for the care you received.
