Dealing With Medical Malpractice Cases And How To Prevent Them


Medical malpractice cases are celebrated cases that get the interest not just of many people in the field of medicine but of many individuals as well. When a person files a case of medical malpractice against a doctor everyone is curious about whether or not they may also file the same thing and if their experience would be tantamount to medical malpractice as well.

Here at Haque Legal, we believe in our duty to ensure that our clients know about their rights and what they need to do with them. We want to make sure that you know how to properly protect yourself in case a patient is saying that they will file a medical malpractice case against you.

With that let us look at the different medical malpractice cases as well as our general advice on how you can prevent them from happening to you.

The Grey’s Anatomy Illusion

The medical drama, Grey’s Anatomy, has been around for a long time. A lot of patients talk about how they saw the doctors deal with malpractice and how the patients dealt with such malpractice. 

Of course, we cannot expect that the same thing happens in real life. We are not all actors and life is not written by Shonda Rhimes. We have to prepare for different reactions coming from the people we interact with.

The Kinds of Medical Malpractice Cases and How To Prevent Them

There are many different kinds of medical malpractice cases that have been seen today. We need to prevent them to make sure that we will not see each other in a client-lawyer capacity. We only want what is best for you.

Misdiagnosis

One of the most common medical malpractice cases is the case of misdiagnosis. It happens when a medical practitioner or a medical professional gives the wrong diagnosis to a patient. Reading charts all day and dealing with patients all day may take a toll on a medical professional. Every person understands that there will always come a time when an individual will get tired of dealing with patients or fail to properly assess the diagnosis of the patient.

Misdiagnosis of a patient is very critical because of the many effects that it will have against him. First, the patient will not receive any kind of appropriate medical treatment for their condition and therefore would be receiving useless treatment because of the mistake made in his diagnosis. Another known risk is the fact that since the patient is receiving useless medical treatment for a condition that they do not have he may also receive the unintended side effects coming from that specific condition. 

Of course, when there is a misdiagnosis, it can also lead to a patient having trouble with his or her health because his underlying medical condition is not being properly treated. This is certainly a problem that needs proper assistance.

This is primarily the reason why the state allows for a medical malpractice case to be filed against medical practitioners. A medical malpractice case under misdiagnosis is a way for the state to make sure that health practitioners will be very careful in giving their diagnosis to individuals and giving them the right treatment.

Failure to diagnose

If there is such a thing as a misdiagnosis there is also that thing called a failure to diagnose. There is a failure to diagnose when the individual medical practitioner, who is expected to diagnose the patient properly, fails to do so.

While this does not apply to all cases it applies to life-threatening conditions or conditions that could have been easy to treat but were not treated because the medical practitioner or the doctor failed to assess the situation and properly assess the treatment that the patient needs.

Medical malpractice based on a failure to diagnose is a very specific kind of medical malpractice that studies whether or not the individual involved had indeed failed to do his part in ensuring that he protects the rights of the patients and his life and liberty as well.

Keep in mind that when there is a failure to diagnose on the part of the individual involved the person who ultimately pays for it would be the patient because he would fail to receive the right treatment and he would fail to properly do what he can to protect his rights and eventually to protect his life.

Prescription Mistakes

Another medical malpractice case that we often see filed against medical practitioners would be prescription mistakes. When a patient receives too much of a prescription, severe side effects or loss of life are possible. The patient’s condition may not be treated appropriately if the prescription given by the medical professional is not proper and is not appropriate to the condition that he has.

If the patient receives too much he may be facing a lot of side effects coming from the prescription of the doctor. If the patient receives too little he may be just wasting medicine because the medicine involved will not be the same as what she needs.
