There are many examples of medical professionals breaching their duty to their patients:
1.Ignoring or misreading laboratory results
2. Failing to account for a patient’s medical history
3. Failing to warn a patient of known risks
4. Failing to review the patient’s current medications
5. Failing to adequately monitor or treat symptoms or prescribing contraindicated medications. A poor medical result, however, does not mean that the doctor or medical provider committed malpractice. Your doctor or medical provider must have acted in a manner that was not reasonable and a breach of the standard of care.
If you suspect breach of duty has taken place by one of the doctors you see, then you need to speak to a qualified attorney right away. You may be able to seek damages if you have a case. The best way to find out is if you have a case so the attorney can review the facts and get back to you. We at Davis Kelin Law Firm would be happy to talk to you to discuss your case.
