Although Michigan doctors take an oath promising to do their patients no harm, far too often, medical mistakes lead to undeserved and completely avoidable injuries. Last week, we discussed how this can occur when a medical professional fails to obtain informed consent before proceeding with a course of treatment, but that is merely one of the many ways a doctor or hospital can be negligent. A medical condition may be misdiagnosed or never diagnosed, and surgical errors can occur.
Tragically, the victims of this negligence are often subjected to extensive losses. These losses can be physical in nature, such as suffering pain, the limited use of a limb or one’s mind and even permanent disfigurement. In addition, a victim may suffer emotional damages due to knowing how the incident will affect their lives, as well as the fear associated with reliving the incident. Lastly, a victim can suffer extensive financial losses, usually in the form of medical expenses and lost wages. If left unaddressed, these damages can ruin an individual’s life.
Fortunately, victims do not have to sit back and allow their lives to be negatively affected. Instead, they can choose to pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit. If successful on one of these claims, victims can recover compensation for their losses, find accountability and obtain a sense of closure.
