Anyone responsible for your healthcare can be charged with medical malpractice. Proving fault in medical malpractice cases can be quite difficult. Although doctors could face severe consequences, prosecuting attorneys are often unable to present any reliable evidence. Going through medical treatment can be an exhausting process, and if you feel that your healthcare provider was negligent towards your care, you have the right to file a medical malpractice lawsuit.
The hospital can be held liable for any injuries that are caused while you are under its care. Medical staff may be responsible for the injuries, but hospitals that employ them usually take the responsibility for their actions. This is why hospitals can also be sued for any sort of corporate negligence and hiring of unprofessional or incompetent staff.
Other than doctors and hospitals, you may also file a complaint against pharmaceutical companies. These companies are responsible for providing the customers with the required medications. They must also share all the possible side effects of their medication. In case you are facing side effects that were not mentioned by the company, you have the right to file a lawsuit. Pharmaceutical companies are usually liable to the doctor because the doctor is the one prescribing the medicine.
Medical facilities are meant to cure you of diseases, not add to your suffering. If you have been injured while receiving medical treatment, you have the right to file a complaint and a medical malpractice lawsuit. An experienced attorney will be able to guide you through the process.
