Mississippi Medical Malpractice Attorney Services Offered By Germany Law Firm PLLC

October 18, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Germany Law Firm PLLC, which is based in Jackson, Mississippi, has announced that they are offering medical malpractice attorney services in Mississippi. The firm is capable of handling medical malpractice cases, which are a type of personal injury claim. Medical malpractice in Mississippi covers a broad range of factors, and the most common include problems in misdiagnosis, childbirth, surgical errors, and delayed diagnosis.

Doctors, nurses and other health professionals need to comply with a “medical standard of care” when treating patients. This means that patients consider them to be trained, competent, and sensitive enough to treat people with compassion while ensuring that they provide the acceptable quality of care.

One possible cause for a medical malpractice claim is complication in childbirth. For example, umbilical prolapse may require an unplanned C-section, including other procedures performed during the high-stress time of birth, and this can result into complications that sometimes lead to medical malpractice cases.

Another potential cause for a medical malpractice claim is a misdiagnosis, especially when it leads to injury and even death. These cases usually involve two factors: a lab test error or a doctor misdiagnosing a disease. When a doctor makes a misdiagnosis of a serious health condition, there has to be proof that there was negligence on the part of the doctor. For instance, if the symptoms of the disease were evident but the doctor had disregarded them, then negligence might be present. Also, if the doctor had not complied with the expected standard of care, there might be a case for medical malpractice.

Bob Germany malpractice attorney, says, “In some cases, however, testing companies produce incorrect results, leading to misdiagnosis. In this way, medical test companies can become involved in malpractice lawsuits.”

He adds, “Meanwhile, a delayed diagnosis can be just as serious as a misdiagnosis. If a person’s condition worsened because of a delayed diagnosis, they may be entitled to file a personal injury lawsuit for their injuries and losses.”

Another common source of medical malpractice cases is surgical error. Surgical errors may include unnecessary surgery and can range from the serious, such as performing surgery on the wrong knee or leaving a medical instrument inside the body. These cases may also include less sensational surgical errors, such as overuse of anesthesia or perforation of an organ.

Other common cases of medical malpractice in Mississippi include misprescribed medication, hasty discharge from the hospital, failure to read medical test results, and little to no follow-up care.

Bob Germany says, “If you or someone you love has been the victim of medical malpractice, you owe it to yourself and other patients who may suffer at the hands of a negligent medical professional. You have a right to seek justice to ensure that the medical professional whose negligence caused your injury doesn’t make the same mistake on someone else.”

To be able to file a medical malpractice lawsuit in Mississippi, a Certificate of Consultation must be obtained, which states that at least one medical professional has declared that the patient has suffered from negligence of a doctor or other healthcare provider.

It should also be noted that medical malpractice in Mississippi is under a strict statute of limitations as indicated in the Mississippi Code 15-1-36. According to this law, medical malpractice victims have to file their claim within two years of the date when the malpractice became known to the victim. There may be some exceptions, such as when a medical instrument or item was left in the body of a patient and the patient had not discovered it until years later. But in most cases, victims need to plan to file their malpractice lawsuit as soon as they have realized that medical malpractice had occurred.

As seen from the above, there is the statute of limitations and other provisions that need to be considered when filing a case. Thus, it is vital for victims to get the advice and guidance of a competent malpractice lawyer in Mississippi.
