Facts about Medical Malpractice
Daytona Beach Medical Malpractice Attorney
When you have a serious medical concern, it can be traumatizing enough. Suffering a health scare can put you through the ringer when it comes to the state of your physical, mental and emotional well-being. When we become concerned over our health, the first people we turn to are those whom we look up to within the medical industry: doctors, nurses, and the medical personnel in charge of caring for us when we are sick and ailing. But what happens when those who are put in charge of restoring our health, are the very same professionals who cause our health to decline?
Medical negligence is something that we don’t like to think about. We know it happens, we hear of it happening, and some of us have even seen its devastating effects. But like any other human on the face of the earth, we all tend to think, “that will never happen to me.” The cold truth is that it can, and medical malpractice is becoming an all-too-common tragedy. With the abundance of prescriptions available in the medical market, it can be difficult to determine the causes of the symptoms of the many diseases and to determine just the right medicine to prescribe.
When a misdiagnosis occurs, or a doctor prescribes the wrong medication, it can often lead to death, serious injury, or other health problems piled on top of a patient’s existing condition. It is not a lovely thought to consider, but doctors and nurses are more capable of making serious, life-altering mistakes than we would like to know. Because when we go the doctor’s office or to the hospital, the goal is to leave the facility on the right track to health and happiness, not on a downward spiral into an even more serious health issue that could have been avoided.
