When we go to the doctor, we are under the reasonable assumption that we are going to be taken care of. Rarely do we imagine a doctor or other medical professional making a crucial mistake, but it can and does happen. If you suspect that a doctor committed an error or oversight which led to your worsened condition, then contact our Cecil County medical malpractice lawyer right away for a consultation. Many people aren’t sure if their situation constitutes medical malpractice. Once we learn more about what happened, we can advise further. Sometimes what you need is a legal professional to provide clarity and next steps if legal action is warranted. 

Signs Of Medical Negligence

There are many ways that a doctor may commit medical negligence, such as absence of informed consent, persistent symptoms, delayed diagnosis, unusual symptoms after surgery, not getting expected results from treatment, prescription medication mistakes, understaffed facility, and contradicting opinions between medical professionals. By law, doctors have to provide informed consent. This means that patients receive full disclosure of the procedure and the potential risks involved so they can make a decision that is best for themselves. Doctors who diagnose a patient in a delayed way may have caused their condition to worsen unnecessarily. Unusual symptoms like swelling, bleeding, or bruising could mean a procedure was not performed correctly. When patients undergo treatment, they anticipate their condition improving. However, this may not be the case. You may have noticed your condition has persisted or even exacerbated. The reason could be that your doctor did not give you below standard care or suggested the wrong treatment plan. Your doctor could have prescribed you the wrong medication type and/or dosage, or failed to observe harmful interaction with medication you were already taking. If you notice the facility lacks enough staff to attend to all the patients in a timely manner, share this with our knowledgeable medical malpractice attorney during your consultation. We may suggest getting a second opinion from another doctor about your condition to see if there are vast differences between their verdicts. A big discrepancy could point to the first doctor making incorrect conclusions. Ultimately, if you feel as though your doctor made a mistake and your health was adversely affected because of it, it is worth speaking with a lawyer about a potential case.
