Dentists and oral surgeons are required to comply with the standard of care during dental consultations, routine examinations, and surgery. If the standard of care is ignored or overlooked, serious injury — and in extreme cases, death — can occur in the dentist’s chair. Like all medical professionals, dentists and other dental care providers have a high level of responsibility to treat their patients with compassion and care. If you were injured due to dental malpractice you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
If a hospital’s services do not abide by the high standard of care, you may have grounds to take legal action against the hospital and its staff. The hospital is liable for the acts of its doctors, nurses, pharmacists, therapists, anesthesiologists, and other healthcare providers, as well as for the equipment they use in administering treatments. If you seek legal action, you must face the daunting challenge of taking on the hospital and insurance company, but you definitely should not do it alone.
Military Medical Malpractice
Members of the military and their families may not be aware that they can take action if they have been harmed by a doctor’s mistake or any other type of medical malpractice in a military hospital. Despite persistent myths, there is no government immunity that shields military doctors and hospitals for professional negligence that causes injury or death to a patient. Military medical professionals are held to the same standards of professional medical care as any other healthcare provider.
