Most people never want to admit it; healthcare professionals have chosen a hard job, and the vast majority of them do a great job and genuinely care about their patients. But sometimes mistakes are made – some studies show as many as 100,000 serious mistakes and death from mistake occur every year. When compared with how many people use the medical system, a small percentage – but 100,000 people per year is about the same as an airliner crashing every day.
Sometimes, you simply need to protect yourself or your loved one. If you see a mistake made that made injuries worse or permanent, or a mistake that caused a death, then it is time to contact a Phoenix medical malpractice lawyer or a Phoenix accident lawyer. You can bet your bottom dollar that the hospital, as soon as they know a mistake has been made, has teams of people ready to start what they think of merely as a business process.
Now, I am not saying every hospital is like this, but especially in the case of medical care gone wrong, you should not be making legal decisions without expert advice. They will have the best Phoenix business lawyer they can and you are simply crippling yourself if you do not do the same with a Phoenix personal injury lawyer.
When someone is sick, seriously ill or injured, or if your loved one has died, legal things will be the last things on your mind – no matter what, if you are undergoing a situation like this it is very hard to think straight and keep things in perspective. A sick patient just wants it to be over, and a grieving person usually is not concerned at all about money, but there is no question that when someone dies, especially if there are children involved, money will sooner or later be playing a part – either because you got a fair share, or because you didn’t and fifteen years later you realize that there is no college fund.
Ensuring that the mistake is completely taken care of medically is also of prime concern for your lawyer. If you are injured, or your injury made worse while under medical care, it is essential that they foot the bill from that moment on. They will not always do this. If you are not represented, there is a chance that they will reach the point where they say, we’ve fixed the problem – except you may know that the problem is not fixed.
It is at this point that, for some reason many people do not seek counsel – they can say that it over, but you do not have to accept it, and knowing the rules of the legal and court system is the key to sometimes having to force a positive outcome. It would be great if we lived in a world where that was not the case, where everybody would be treated with respect and worth, even by the biggest of corporations.
That’s just not the world we live in though – if you’ve been a victim of medical malpractice or had someone take advantage of you after injuring you, get a lawyer.
