Randall, Page & Bruch, P.C. – Attorneys at Law

Courtland, Virginia Medical Malpractice Attorney

Doctors are one of the most trusted professionals we encounter in our lives. Americans trust that their doctor is guiding them in the right direction when it comes to their health. You never think that you will leave a doctor’s office or facility with a new injury or a worsening condition. Doctors make mistakes like anyone else, however, when they make a mistake that can alter the life of a patient. This is unacceptable and someone needs to be held liable for your injury. This is where a Courtland, VA medical malpractice attorney comes in. We can find evidence that the doctor was negligent and caused you harm.

What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice can be difficult to understand especially when it has been ingrained in our heads that we must trust and listen to our doctors. Virginia ranks 42nd in the United States for annual claims per 1 million residents according to findings from the True Cost of Healthcare. Some of the most common types of medical malpractice claims are:

  • Failure to treat
  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
  • Childbirth injuries
  • Surgical or procedural errors
  • Prescription drug errors

This is not an exhaustive list and each of these items has its own explanations and intricacies. For example, a misdiagnosis can cause someone to be treated for one illness when they actually have a different illness or ailment altogether. This can cause the condition to worsen as it is not being properly treated and it can cause other conditions to arise from receiving treatment for an issue that is actually not present. Failure to treat is when a patient is discharged without care or any kind of instruction. It is also when no follow-up testing is ordered or a patient’s medical history is not considered.

Childbirth has become very dangerous in the United States and can also lead to catastrophic and lifelong issues. One of the most common childbirth injuries is excessive force when removing the baby from the birth canal. This can cause the baby and mother to both suffer injuries that can be difficult to recover from. Surgeries can sometimes be necessary but when surgery is conducted on the wrong part of your body, this can leave catastrophic consequences. If you have experienced any of these or think there may be a possible medical malpractice concern, you should contact Randall, Page & Bruch, P.C. immediately.
