As discussed last week on the blog, medical malpractice can take many forms. Though we often think of medical malpractice in the form of misdiagnosis and surgical errors, mistakes in prescribing medication can be just as harmful, if not more so. Those subjected to a prescription error can suffer significant harm, including a worsened medical condition or death. But what can you do if you have been hurt by one of these mishaps?
Medical professionals are held to a high standard of care, and for good reason: they literally hold your health in their hands. So, when these individuals neglect that standard and harm you, they should be held accountable. One of the best ways to do this is to file a civil lawsuit against the professionals who harmed you and the institution at which they work. This might help shine a light on the issue and put it to a stop. It might also allow you to recover compensation to help you deal with your losses.
