Medical Malpractice - The Larger Issue

By: Andre Zayas

Medical malpractice is serious regardless of how serious the victim's anguish is. Whether the victim is maimed, unable to walk again, killed, or caused serious mental and/or financial anguish, a bigger crime is at hand. The doctor who was practicing medicine on the patient lost their competence, if only for a moment. This, in the profession the world trusts its life to, is a crime.

Victims of medical malpractice who are injured for life, such as those who are maimed, have an obvious reason to file a lawsuit. These people already know that since they have suffered from medical malpractice they should find a local malpractice attorney office to claim their due. After all, these victims are very likely either working two jobs to pay off their mounting medical bills that bad doctor caused them, or they are too injured to work. Many of these victims are at home in bed, in pain, and worried about how their bills are going to be paid.

Other victims of medical malpractice include the family and friends of the person who was killed due to a doctor's negligence. These persons are left to pay the medical bills of their loved one, as well as pay costly funeral expenses to put the original victim to rest.

Many victims of medical malpractice suffer primarily mental or financial anguish. These people are the lucky victims we get to meet, and we believe they have been appointed to stand up for what the injured, the maimed, and the dead cannot: Fight against medical malpractice so that more lives are not ruined or lost.

Your medical malpractice lawsuit is a tool to help refocus American doctors on what's important. Hit their pocket book and see that they think about their patients and not the golf ball. If you have a medical malpractice case on your hands, hand it to competent local medical malpractice attorneys who see the bigger picture.
