Injured in a Medical Malpractice Case?
A San Antonio Medical Malpractice Attorney Can Help You Find Compensation
You entrust your medical care in the specialists, doctors, and nurses whose
job is to take care of you. When that trust is broken, because one or
another failed to provide reasonable and standard medical care or acted
outside of their limits, then you must hold those responsible for their
action. You have the right to seek compensation for the injuries brought
on or worsened by malpractice.
These are the most common examples of medical malpractice cases:
- Birth injuries
- Pharmacy errors
- Lack or delay of treatment
- Emergency room errors
- Nursing home abuse
Medical malpractice can be a somewhat complex area of law that encompasses
a wide range of legal matters. When you are receiving treatment, it is
crucial that every detail in your treatment is carried out accurately.
The slightest mistake can eventually snowball into a more serious problem.
For example, being given the wrong medication can not only delay the treatment
of your current condition, you may experience complications or adverse
reactions. In some very extreme cases, it can even cause wrongful death
to the patient. This is precisely why you must seek an attorney to provide
you with counsel at this time.
Do I have a case?
If you were treated by a doctor or another medical care professional and
they committed an error that caused you damage, injury, or harm. However,
you cannot simply bring forth a claim that they made an error. It is also
up to you to demonstrate the extent of the harm, and how much inconvenience
it caused to you and/or your family.
Secondly, you must be able to show that the error was due to some sort
of negligence on the part of the medical care practitioner. One example
would be if the practitioner lacked proper training to carry out the procedure—this
is an inefficiency on the part of their employer, hospital or whoever
oversees their organization. Another example would be misconduct on the
part of the practitioner. There may be a variety of scenarios stemming
from your case, so it is important that you begin the investigation process
as soon as possible. We can help!
