How Do I Know If I'm A Victim Of Malpractice?

Mistakes and oversights happen every day in the medical field, and medical malpractice is a leading cause of injury in this country. Patients often suffer the tragic consequences of negligence on the part of doctors and other practitioners.

Sometimes, it's obvious that an inexcusable error occurred. You might have gone to the emergency room with telltale symptoms of a stroke or heart attack, only to be sent home by a busy doctor. Or perhaps your surgeon left behind a piece of surgical sponge, leading to a life-threatening infection.

In some situations, a good Samaritan nurse or staff member might go behind their boss's back to alert you that something very wrong took place. In most cases, though, you might not know. Perhaps you have suspicions but can't get a clear explanation of what happened. You might end up suffering from serious and unexpected complications for months or even years before it comes to light that your injuries were preventable.
