Medical negligence

Health is the most valuable thing that every person has. Trusting doctors and medical institutions, we expect qualified help and recovery.

However, there are situations when, due to negligence, mistakes or incompetence of medical professionals, patients face serious health problems and even lose their lives. In such cases, we are talking about medical negligence.

What is medical malpractice?

Medical negligence is improper performance of professional duties by a medical worker, which leads to negative consequences for the patient’s health. It may be:

  • Incorrect diagnosis;
  • Non-appointment or untimely appointment of the necessary treatment;
  • Improper conduct of medical manipulations;
  • Careless maintenance of medical documentation;
  • Inadequate informing the patient about his health and the risks of treatment;
  • Disclosure of medical secrets.

Consult with a lawyer

What should a patient do if he has met with medical negligence?

If you suspect that you have become a victim of medical malpractice, it is important to act decisively and competently. Here are some steps you should take:

  1. Contact the management of the medical institution with a written complaint, where you describe the situation in detail.
  2. Collect all the documents that confirm the fact that you received medical care (outpatient card extracts, prescriptions, examination results, etc.).
  3. Seek an independent medical examination to confirm a causal relationship between the actions of the medical professional and the harm caused to your health.
  4. Consult a lawyer who specializes in medical law. He will be able to represent your interests and help at every step in this case.

Self-advocacy in cases of medical malpractice can lead to serious mistakes, because medical law is a complex field that requires deep knowledge and experience.

  • To successfully defend your rights in court, you will need a clear and convincing evidence base, which a lawyer can help you put together.
  • Without a legal education, you can incorrectly determine the type and amount of damage caused to you, which will lead to errors in calculating the amount of compensation.
  • Legally competent drafting of the statement of claim and other documents is a key factor for the successful consideration of your case in court.
