Getting sick is no fun. Depending on the severity of the illness it can take you days or weeks to get back to normal, but that’s only if the doctor who is treating you is able to diagnose what you have. When we enter hospitals we have no choice but to trust what they have to say and how they treat us. Like any other profession, people who are not in the profession rely on those professionals to be on top of their game. How can a layperson judge a professional? How can you know what a doctor does or doesn’t do if you have never been around that kind of profession before? Sometimes it comes on like a feeling that is wrong, other times you just cannot accept the choices that were made by professionals, and sometimes you just have to find someone who can help you better assess your situation. That “someone” is our Sherman Oaks medical malpractice attorney at Mancini & Associates, a Professional Law Corporation.
The medical profession is a vast system that does its best to ensure that patients are taken care of, diagnosed, and treated all up to a standard of care necessary for the medical profession. However, just like any system, some people fall through the cracks. Some people don’t get the right treatment. Sometimes doctors assume instead of getting to the real answers. Sometimes doctors and facilities just get it wrong. We are all, in the end, just fallible humans. The problem is, though, when doctors get it wrong it can lead to life-changing situations. This was the case for a baby girl whose life changed drastically after negligent behavior from the doctor.
Giving birth is a scary scenario. There are tons of factors to consider between the mother’s health and the babies. It truly is a miracle when all goes right and there needn’t be any intervention. However, for this couple, the doctor did not take certain precautionary tests to ensure that the baby was getting enough oxygen to the brain. Because the tests were not taken the child developed cerebral palsy. The family was awarded $74 million to cover medical treatments for the rest of the child’s life.
In a medical malpractice case, you must have an attorney who knows how to investigate, get expert opinions, and act aggressively for your case. There is no denying that medical malpractice cases are tricky and can be incredibly stressful. In the case of the baby girl, all the parents wanted was enough money to cover medical expenses to cover the girl even if they were to pass away.
