Wrong Treatment

Many of the malpractice cases we handle stem from clients whose doctors have diagnosed their condition properly, but have treated their condition improperly. An example, a client we had reported to his doctor with extremely high blood pressure. The doctor gave him medication that made that blood pressure dropped precipitously. As a result our client suffered a severe and disabling stroke. Another client had knee pain that was appropriately treated initially by the doctor or appropriately recognized. But he was given a certain medication that eventually caused him to suffer from severe end stage kidney failure. Another client reported to the emergency room and said he was dizzy. The doctor recognized this condition, prescribed certain medication that actually caused him to hemorrhage and eventually suffer a severe, disabling stroke. Occasionally doctors make mistakes. The lesson to be learned here is, with any medication read the instructions, ask questions, and have your doctor tell you about any and all possible side effects of the medication he is recommending. Remember, he is working for you. If you think you might have a medical malpractice case give us a call. We can help.
