Almost all Types of Lawyers come Across Instances of Medical Malpractice

Unfortunately, even with the improved technology and better hospitals, medical malpractice is still a very large problem. In fact, all types of lawyers come across clients who have suffered due to medical malpractice and have to guide them to the proper lawyer who specializes in such cases. For instance, you could be a lawyer specializing in workers compensation and you might be handling a case where the employee of a construction company has sustained a crushing injury to his arm from a forklift.

A Medical Mistake

The injured employee is rushed to an emergency unit of a hospital, where the doctor provides the required treatment by sowing up the large gash on the employee's arm. However, while sowing up the arm, the doctor mistakenly sows up a nerve that has control over some fingers and part of the arm. This mistake is not recognized, until a few weeks later, the employee complains of weakness and decreased sensation, in a part of the injured arm. The employee consults another surgeon, and finds out that the first surgeon had inadvertently sown up a vital nerve while treating the gash in his arm.

Due to the mistake committed by the surgeon, the employee has to undergo nerve transposition surgery, where a nerve is taken from another part of his body, to repair the injured nerve. The employee now has a permanent arm injury, which is not caused by the accident at the place of work, but from what occurred in the emergency room at the hospital. Now if you are a worker's compensation lawyer, and this employee has come to you about his worker's compensation case, you know that something more will have to done to help this person. Workers compensation laws may not cover his permanent arm injury that was caused due to the negligence of his treating doctor.

Finding Justice

This was one example, but in reality, every type of lawyer or any law practitioner is bound to come across clients or people whom they know, who have been injured or suffering due to medical malpractice. A mechanic who has come to repair some appliance in your house might narrate to you how his father died because he did not receive the expected medical care from his doctor. Because of the incidents narrated by the person, it might trigger in you a desire to help the person and find him the justice he is entitled to, in this country. You will be thinking what I should do now, to solve the issues that this person is experiencing.

The best course of action would be to recommend a stunning medical malpractice attorney, who will be able to take the required actions, file a lawsuit, and bring the doctors who have done wrong to justice. In case the person is alive and suffering due to the injuries, the medical malpractice lawsuit will be able to provide impressive compensation for the damages. In case the person did not survive the wrongdoing, the lawyer can file a wrongful death case and provide closure to the grieving family members.
