Whether your medical incident was planned, unplanned or otherwise mundane leading up to your medical malpractice injury, it doesn’t matter. Medical professionals, HMO and clinics are expected to uphold a standard of care in all circumstances. Failure to do so can quickly lead to serious injury. If you have been injured in a medical malpractice incident, consider that there could be more than one party at fault.
This can be hard to see, prove or understand at first glimpse of medical malpractice injury. However, a full investigation can bring details to light or can uncover third party medical providers that you didn’t even know were relevant or a part of your medical care. This isn’t unusual. Who providers use in terms of equipment, third party providers or other medical parties isn’t always disclosed to the patient. They are all expected to uphold the duty of care, whatever their impact or role in a patient’s medical care.
