When Medical Professionals Cause Harm Instead Of Healing

A commitment to "do no harm" is at the heart of the medical profession. As a guiding principle, it's something everyone can get behind. In practice, however, not every health care practitioner upholds this duty. Mistakes, oversights and other forms of negligence are rampant in our nation's health care system. When your well-being is at stake, even minor mishaps can become life-threatening.

The Legal Realities

Medical malpractice claims are an important way to hold doctors, hospitals and other health care providers responsible for their actions. These claims also make sure patient safety becomes the No. 1 priority of health care providers.

However, medical malpractice claims are among the most complex and difficult types of personal injury cases. Medical professionals — and the facilities that employ them — will always fight vigorously to avoid being held fully accountable for mistakes. They often place financial considerations above their patients' best interests. They might go a long way to protect their reputation. For this reason, you might not even know whether you've been a victim of malpractice. It's important to contact a lawyer if you have any suspicions.
