One area that is particularly upsetting in personal injury law is the wide range of topics that fall under medical malpractice. The reason they are so upsetting is pretty simple. When you go to see a medical professional, you are putting a lot of trust in that individual. You are trusting that they will look out for your best interest, that they will be informed on the medical topics required to treat you, and that they know the best way to move forward so you can get back to being healthy. When a medical professional betrays this trust and causes you even more medical misfortune, that is simply not acceptable. That is a violation of your trust and of their responsibility as a medical professional and they absolutely should be held accountable for their actions. This doesn’t just apply to doctors. Nurses, nursing home employees, and even doctor’s office secretaries can find themselves guilty of committing medical malpractice depending on the circumstances. Speak to one of our attorneys to learn more about what can be done to make the medical professional that betrayed your trust, and their duty, pay.
