Did Your Doctor Make A Mistake?

Could your disease have been caught earlier? Were you prescribed the wrong medicine? Was an error made during surgery?

These are the questions on people's minds after being harmed by a missed diagnosis or operating room injury. Uncovering a doctor or surgeon's mistake can be difficult. However, technological advances and the use of electronic data have made answering these questions easier.

Electronic Data May Provide The Answer

Today, everything in a doctor's office and hospital is electronic. Patients are monitored with machines that record data, tests and diagnoses are recorded electronically, and surgeries performed with the assistance of robotics provide minute-by-minute electronic feedback.

Electronic data not only helps doctors and surgeons diagnose and treat patients, it also leaves an electronic paper trail. If your doctor made a mistake, or if your surgeon made an error, there is a record of it.

What Does This Mean For You?

It's true, electronic data can't turn back the clock and undo the harm you've experienced. But, it can provide answers. And it can also provide you with the proverbial "smoking gun" you need to bring a legal claim, hold doctors responsible for their negligence and provide you with the compensation you deserve.

If you suspect your doctor's error or negligence caused your diagnosis to be missed, your disease to be mistreated, or an operating room injury, consider talking to a law firm with experience interpreting electronic data.

But few lawyers truly understand the medical science of medical malpractice litigation. As a result they may fail to recognize a viable case, unwisely pursue a weak case, or stumble in cross-examination of those medical experts.
