Patients Have Legal Rights

Patients have a legal right to trust that their care providers will not make diagnostic errors or other treatment mistakes. Patients also have the right to give informed consent before they undergo any medical procedure.

Because plaintiffs have these rights, doctors have obligations. Medical care providers must provide reasonable quality treatment, must perform procedures with skill and should recognize when symptoms suggest the need for more testing or point to a specific diagnosis.

Unfortunately, doctors fall short of these obligations every day. Some of the most common mistakes made by physicians include:

  • Missed diagnoses
  • Delayed diagnoses
  • Surgical mistakes
  • Skills-based errors in routine medical treatment
  • Intubation errors
  • Misread lab results
  • Medication errors

The majority of specialty practice doctors will be sued for at least one medical mistake at some point in their careers, and 200,000 people each year will lose their lives in the United States because of mistakes that doctors make. If you are one of the many who is hurt or if a loved one is killed, a medical malpractice lawyer will help you take action against the doctor as well as other possible defendants like the hospital or health clinic.

Patients can also pursue a claim if a doctor fails to get informed consent, which means explaining the medical procedure prior to performing treatment and giving you the opportunity to decide if it is right for you.
