A physician fatally injures a relative
Performing a medical procedure of any kind can be stressful, no matter how many times the physician has done so. The greater the amount of stress, the greater the likelihood the surgeon will make a mistake that, unfortunately, causes the death of a loved one. If that happens, you may be able to recover significant compensation from a surgeon. Please bear in mind that the surgeon’s inability to save your loved one’s life does not automatically equate to medical malpractice as many variables go into an unfavorable outcome. Nonetheless, if the surgery presents no unreasonable difficulties or considerations but the doctor makes a choice during the procedure that no other doctor would make, you may have grounds for a lawsuit.
A physician arrives at work impaired from drugs or alcohol
As you know, it is far more challenging to do anything while impaired. This is why there are strict laws in place regarding operating machinery, driving, or helping medical patients while impaired. If your doctor was impaired and harmed you as a result, you should have a valid claim.
A physician fails to properly diagnose your medical condition
When a physician fails to diagnose a medical condition properly or timely, it can result in the condition going untreated and thereby worsening, which can lead to irreparable damage. Improperly diagnosing a medical condition can also lead to treating a patient for a disease or illness they do not have, harming them as a result.
