Help When You Need It Most from Ocala Medical Malpractice Attorneys
When you’re sick or injured, you most likely rely on healthcare providers to give you the best care available. You trust in their knowledge, professionalism, and ability to help you recover. Unfortunately, however, you could find out that your trust is unwarranted. All too often doctors and other healthcare providers are not reliable and provide less than optimal care.
Sometimes they misdiagnose a serious condition, or they make a mistake during surgery or a medical procedure. Sometimes they prescribe or give the wrong medication. Sometimes they do not notice signs of a serious medical condition. Whatever the case, their medical negligence can have devastating effects on patients.
If you or a family member has been seriously injured, endangered, or impaired because of medical negligence or malpractice, you are not alone. The experienced medical malpractice attorneys of the Davila Law Group want to help you. Call us today so we can get started working on getting you compensated fairly for your injury, pain, and suffering.
What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is healthcare that does not meet the profession’s accepted standard of care and thus risks injuring patients. Medical malpractice occurs when healthcare providers do not provide treatment in situations where others with similar professional training would have. It also occurs when healthcare providers are negligent in their care or treatment or when they make errors in diagnosing, medicating, operating, or performing a procedure.
Common medical errors include diagnostic errors, anesthesia errors, medication errors, and emergency room errors. Common delays in diagnoses include diagnoses for cancer, serious infections, appendicitis, and problems during the birth process. Also, negligent post-operative care can result in significant medical problems such as staph infections, pneumonia, sepsis, blood clots, and internal bleeding.
What Are Medical Malpractice Cases?
Medical malpractice cases are filed in order to help victims of medical practice recover damages for their injuries, pain, suffering, and losses. In a medical malpractice case, we need to show that you were a patient of the healthcare provider you are suing and that he or she did not take the same, appropriate action other healthcare providers would have taken in the same or similar situation. We also need to show that the healthcare provider’s negligence or error caused your injury and that the injury has led to financial and/or non-financial damages.
People who have suffered from serious medical malpractice injuries often have medical expenses for hospital stays, doctor visits, and ongoing treatment. If you can’t work because of your injury, you face the additional burden of lost wages and decreased or lost earning capacity. Getting compensated for your expenses, losses, pain and suffering is necessary for your day-to-day life and survival.
