Your Health Worsened After an Operation. Did Medical Malpractice Occur?

by Staff Blogger | June 25th, 2020

When most patients see their doctors, whether it’s for checkups or operations, they expect to get treatment that will make them feel better. But that doesn’t always happen. In fact, sometimes patients end up feeling worse, and they may even develop new complications after procedures.

At Skolrood Law Firm, we get many questions from people whose health took a downturn after getting treatments. They want to know whether or not they are victims of medical malpractice. It’s difficult to answer that question without carefully reviewing the facts of what happened and reviewing any and all available evidence.

When you see a doctor or other healthcare professional, there’s no guarantee you’ll get better or that your condition will be properly treated. However, healthcare providers are expected to provide care to the best of their abilities and to avoid carelessness every step of the way. When they don’t follow proper protocols or don’t pay attention to what they’re doing, they may be considered negligent.

Negligence that results in poor health outcomes can be considered medical malpractice. And that’s what our Roanoke medical malpractice lawyers are here to assist with.
