Why Types Of Malpractice Cases Resonate With Juries?

Posted by Alvin Wolff | Oct 28, 2018 | 0 Comments

There needs to be a situation and an outcome where if we explain it to you, you will say: "Boy I hope that never happens to me!"   One of the few ways that can occur is if there is a systems failure such as a failure to monitor, communicate and followup between members of the health team.    Any systems failure is where the time out goes wrong and the wrong body part is operated on.

Recently we had a systems failure where 2.5 mg. of a drug was ordered and 25 mg. was given to our client instead.   This caused an injury that was certainly compensable.   

Rarely is a situation compensable where something bad occurs like cutting a nerve, discovering the injury and repairing the nerve in a timely manner.   Even if the patient has a bad result, that will not be malpractice.  However if the nerve was cut, the patient complained, and the nurse didn't communicate the complaint to the doctor resulting in a permanent injury due to the delay, there would in all likelihood be a case of malpractice.

If you have any questions about whether or not you may be a victim of malpractice, feel free to call.   We don't want to waste your time, we don't want to give you false hopes, but if you have case we will take it seriously and not let up until we win.
