If you are a victim of a medical malpractice case, your first instinct is to sue your doctor. However, there are many other medical professionals and entities that could be liable for your injuries. Here are some things you should consider when filing a medical malpractice claim.
A hospital can be accused of medical malpractice. It may be deemed negligent if you can prove that it was negligent in actions that contributed to your injuries, such as hiring unqualified doctors or not having enough nurses on duty. Hospital employees who fail to follow the instructions of your primary physician can cause the hospital to be liable for your damages.
Pharmaceutical companies can be accused of medical malpractice if they fail to warn doctors of any side effects of the medications. When marketing a medication to a doctor, the manufacturer has a duty to ensure that the medication is safe for use by the patients. Therefore, failing to warn doctors of any serious or life-threatening side effects can be considered negligence on the pharmaceutical company’s part and they can be liable for any injuries you suffered as a result.
