The medical treatment is intended to offer relief from the pain and the medical problem. If you are suffering from cough, pain or lump in the breast for a long time and your doctor did not pay any heed it to, the problem may worsen with time. If you have been going to the doctor and still did not offer suitable treatment, you are likely to suffer from injuries due to medical malpractice. A few cases that can be considered as the result of medical malpractice are as follows:
Failed early detection
A medical issue starts at one point, which even you may not know. Once you start getting some symptoms, you must visit the doctor and he should be able to assess these signs and figure out possible risks. If he fails to do so, the symptoms get aggravated and the condition of the patient worsens. The delayed diagnosis in case of cancer, heart disease and stroke can be life threatening. You can file a lawsuit if you have suffered this type of medical malpractice.
Ignoring the tests and scans
In many cases, the medical practitioner may not suggest going for advanced tests such as X-rays, CT- scans and blood tests. If they could reveal the disease and the doctor did not ask you to get it done, you can file a lawsuit against him. Moreover, you will have to contact another medical provider, who can help you understand these facts about your medical condition.
If the patient did not receive the intended treatment, his medical condition can get aggravated. One of the reasons why this situation arises is because of the misdiagnosis or no-diagnosis at all. The patient may get severe injuries due to improper treatment. Additionally, new development may occur in the patient’s body if his medical condition is not treated in a proper way.
Wrongly prescribed medicines
If the patient is not prescribed the right kind of medicine, he can encounter several health-related issues. By consuming the wrong medicines, the patient can experience adverse effects such as swelling in the liver and elevated heart rate. If you have faced such a problem, you can get in touch with another doctor, who can assess whether the medicines are good.
