We rely on doctors, pharmacists, chiropractors, surgeons, dentists, and all other medical professionals at the times in our lives when we are least able to protect ourselves. Relying on these individuals puts us in vulnerable situations, and it requires a great deal of trust on our end. In a perfect world, we could trust all medical professionals to provide the best care to us that they possibly can, every time. Unfortunately, it does not always work out that way.
Understanding Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice refers to the direct act or mere negligence of a healthcare professional that causes illness, injury, or death for a patient. There are number of different situations in which this can arise, but the end result is the same: innocent patients suffer unnecessary and avoidable health risks as a result of their healthcare provider’s negligence.
This negligence can take several different forms, including misdiagnosis of the patient’s condition or failure to take appropriate preventative measures. If you or someone you know has suffered serious ailment or injury at the hands of a medical professional, you may have the grounds to initiate a malpractice claim at the Lake of the Ozarks.
