Malpractice and Negligence At Beth Isreal Medical Center
For a hospital held in such high regard, you would expect to receive the highest levels of attention and care. Whenever you go to a hospital for medical care, you expect your existing issues to get better not to be made worse or for new issues to arise because of a healthcare worker’s lack of focus or training. Unfortunately, this scenario happens far too often, and victims of medical malpractice and negligence can suffer serious harm as a result, regardless of the reputation of the healthcare facility.
Instances of medical malpractice can often result in significant harm to the patients that suffer as a result. In many cases, patients have to deal with a health problem much longer than they otherwise would have, increasing their pain and hurting their quality of life, furthermore, their overall health outcomes may be worse, meaning that the interventions they have to take may now be more serious and some may even fail.
In instances of malpractice like failure to diagnose, there are situations where an otherwise treatable cancer is not diagnosed when it should’ve been and victims may needlessly lose their life as a result of a healthcare professional’s negligence.
The result of many instances of malpractice is that victims and their families get saddled with added medical bills because they take longer to recover from existing health problems or have to deal with new health problems. When you add on top of this financial burden the fact that many victims won’t be able to work while recovering or won’t be able to perform their duties fully, the situation can place a great deal of financial stress on a victim and their families.
Medical malpractice laws exist to help the victim of medical negligence get fair compensation for the damages they suffered to their physical health, emotional well-being, and financial circumstances. The personal injury experts at Richard Hollawell & Associates are here to fight for victims and hold hospitals accountable.
How to Prove Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice can apply to any scenario in which you suffered as a result of negligence on the part of a healthcare provider, this can include nurses, doctors, hospitals, therapists, chiropractors, and other licensed healthcare professionals. However, not every poor outcome is considered negligence.
In order to be malpractice, the healthcare provider must have failed to meet reasonable expectations of care. In general, to help prove you have a malpractice case, you must have testimony from a medical expert demonstrating why the actions of the healthcare worker deviated from accepted standards, meaning that another worker of equal skill wouldn’t have done what your provider did. You will also need testimony showing that the negligence of the healthcare professional directly contributed to your injuries. A lawyer will generally be able to find medical experts for you.
