HOW TO SPOT MEDICAL MALPRACTICE 10 RED FLAGS TO WATCH FOR DURING TREATMENT

For months, our country has been in the grip of a global pandemic. It’s a scary time, and the doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals on the front lines deserve to be commended for their efforts to slow the spread of the virus and treat the sick. They’re putting in an incredible amount of time and energy at their own risk, and we truly appreciate their work. However, in a situation as chaotic as this one, more things than usual will probably slip through the cracks in doctors’ offices and hospitals. While it’s understandable that doctors in a rush to help as many people as possible might miss things or make mistakes, those very human errors can also have tragic consequences, and families who fall victim to medical malpractice deserve justice. If you’re worried that you or a loved one might have experienced medical malpractice, recently or any time in the last five years, look for these warning signs: 1. Your doctor failed to order basic tests. 2. You had to come back to the hospital after an outpatient procedure. 3. Your doctor withheld test results or evaded basic questions.

4. Your symptoms got worse after treatment, or new ones appeared. 5. Your worries about your condition weren’t taken seriously. 6. Your surgery took much more or less time than expected. 7. You were told not to get a second opinion, or got a contradictory one. 8. You were prescribed the wrong medication or dosage. 9. You weren’t diagnosed right away, or you were misdiagnosed. 10. Your doctor told you they made a mistake in your treatment. In order to file a medical malpractice case here in Georgia, you need to be able to prove two things: that there was a failure to meet the applicable standard of care, and that there was a direct link between the medical treatment given and an injury or death. These can be tricky conditions to meet, but here at Bader Scott Injury Lawyers, our team specializes in medical malpractice cases. If you think you or a loved one has fallen victim to medical malpractice, we can help! Visit TheBaderLawFirm.com today to schedule your free case evaluation.
