Doctors have a duty to their patients to provide them an adequate standard of care. When doctors fail to provide their patients with a basic standard of care, patients may suffer a range of injuries, including brain injuries, birth injuries, or even death. Mississippi law strictly governs how much time victims have to pursue a medical malpractice claim against a doctor. Victims of medical malpractice have a duty to provide sufficient evidence that a doctor failed to offer an acceptable standard of care. This requires using expert witnesses and seeking the testimony of other doctors. Common forms of medical malpractice include:
- Improper prescription dosages or failure to note interactions
- Birth injuries
- Surgical mistakes
- Errors administering anesthesia
Victims of medical malpractice can suffer immensely. For instance, when patients are misdiagnosed, they often lose precious days, weeks, or months to receive treatment for their condition. This can lead to worsening symptoms, pain, and even death. Prescription errors can lead to overdoses and adverse reactions. Birth injuries due to mistakes during delivery can harm either the mother or the baby and can result in life-long challenges for both. Surgical errors can lead to longer recovery periods, wrongful death, or lifestyle changes. If you believe you may have suffered an injury due to a doctor’s error or an act of medical malpractice, you may only have a very short amount of time to make a claim. Contact the medical malpractice lawyers at Bullock & Wood today to learn more about your rights.
