Springfield Incorrect Treatment Lawyers
Medical Malpractice Attorneys Accepting Catastrophic Injury Cases
When sick or injured patients receive medical treatment, the hope is that they will fully recover from their ailments. Since different medical problems have very specific causes and effects, treatments are specialized to target each particular condition. As such, doctors must ensure that they administer the proper treatment to their patients.
Unfortunately, some doctors may fail in their duties and order the wrong treatment for a patient. When this error results in injury to the patient, the doctor may be guilty of medical malpractice.
Causes of Incorrect Treatment
In most cases where patients receive the incorrect treatment for their ailments, the error was due to negligence.
The specific negligent actions that may cause a patient to receive incorrect treatment include:
- Confusing patient cases
- Clerical errors
