There is a substantial amount of trust placed in medical practitioners and we visit medical doctors in hopes to heal ourselves—not sustain more damage. In certain cases, medical providers, including hospitals, dentists, outpatient facilities and employees of these facilities, cause irreprehensible damage that leaves patients suffering long-term.

If you were seriously injured, or if a loved one is suffering or has passed due to the negligence of a medical practitioner, we encourage you to take immediate action and contact Parker Alexander.

Who Can Be Held Responsible For Medical Malpractice?

Patients who suffer injuries due to medical malpractice may have questions regarding their rights to take legal action. Part of determining what options are available means knowing which parties can be held responsible.

The Doctor

The doctor who is looking after a patient may be considered liable in actions such as surgical errors, misdiagnosis, and prescribing the wrong medication. In these events, it is up to the doctor to ensure they are providing proper care to their patients. When something goes wrong, it can be the doctor who is liable for all damages associated with the malpractice.

An Anesthesiologist

Anesthesia is necessary for certain procedures as it helps patients get through them without feeling any of the initial pain. The anesthesiologist can be negligent if they fail to provide enough of the medicine, allowing the patient to feel the pain of the procedure. In other situations, an anesthesiologist can be negligent by providing excessive amounts of the medication or by not checking to see how the anesthesia would react with medications the patient is currently taking.

The Hospital

There are times when the hospital or medical facility can be considered responsible when someone on their staff performs an act of negligence. This typically occurs when the medical facility fails to perform a proper background check on a physician, or if they fail to terminate someone with multiple reports of negligence. They know of an issue that can cause harm, yet they do nothing to fix said problem.

Joint Liability

There are some cases where multiple parties may be considered liable for medical malpractice. For instance, if multiple surgeons are in the room and together they cause the injury as a result of a surgical error; both surgeons can be held accountable in a case.

Understanding your rights to take legal action is imperative to getting through these complex matters successfully. Trust that we stand ready to guide you every step of the way and our Monroe medical malpractice attorneys can protect your rights to compensation.

How to Prove Medical Malpractice

In order to file a medical malpractice lawsuit, you will need to be able to prove the following:

  • That there was a doctor-patient relationship between you and the responsible individual
  • That the doctor was negligent in their diagnosis or treatment
  • That the negligence resulted in your injury (this often requires medical expert testimony)
  • That your injury resulted in you incurring certain damages; whether physical, mental or financial

While you may not know how to go about building your case based on these requirements, our medical malpractice attorneys are prepared to help.
