Medical Malpractice in Lynchburg Causes Injuries to Patients
If you suffer a serious medical condition, whether it is temporary or on-going, you will spend lots of time with a doctor to determine appropriate course of treatment. You trust your doctor to come up with an appropriate diagnosis and safe, effective course of treatment.
However, sometimes doctors fail to diagnose, delay diagnoses, or cause other injuries to their patients through negligence or ignorance. This is medical malpractice, and you have a right to pursue civil litigation to protect yourself from the financial consequences of a long-term illness or injury caused by a doctor’s mistreatment.
