Toronto Improper Treatment Lawyers
When you visit the hospital seeking medical treatment, you expect to receive proper care and treatment. It is normal and reasonable to hope that after receiving adequate care, you will be able to make a full recovery and get back to living your life. Unfortunately, this case does not always happen. When a physician or nurse administers improper treatment, they put your life and wellness at risk. Improper treatment can lead to prolonged and worsened illness or injury, as well as additional medical expenses and loss of income. When this kind of negligence occurs, the medical professionals are responsible and need to be held accountable for their actions.
As a victim of improper treatment in medical malpractice, you have the potential to recover damages for your pain, suffering, and financial burdens that occurred as a result. Having a knowledgeable improper treatment lawyer on your team can increase your possibility of receiving compensation and can even increase the amount you recover. At Mazin & Associates, PC, we have experience working with medical malpractice cases, and we know what it takes to get the restitution you deserve.
Forms of Improper Treatment
Improper treatment can happen in a variety of ways, by any medical provider, at any point in your medical visit. The harm caused by improper treatment can range from minor to severe and can cause anything from a slightly prolonged recovery time to death. Common forms of improper treatment include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Giving incorrect medication
- Giving medication you know the patient is allergic to
- Giving an incorrect dosage of medication
- Rushing or delaying surgery
- Suggesting an unnecessary surgery
- Administering inadequate pre- or post-surgical care
These are just some of the ways a medical provider can treat patients improperly or inadequately during a medical visit. Recklessness and negligence on the part of the medical professionals has serious consequences on patients, and they need to be aware of their actions.
