in Billings, Montana

Navigating instances of medical malpractice

When something is done in error, we often hear the sentiment, "everyone makes mistakes." While this is in fact a true statement, in some instances it is not the best stance to take in a situation. Committing errors are indeed integral to the learning process, but sometimes it is not so easy to brush off a mistake that someone has made, especially when it directly impacts another individual.

Indeed, perfection is not only desired in the medical field, it is perhaps essential. Medical professionals almost never have the luxury of being unsure or committing an error. We expect them to have vast medical and treatment knowledge, treat their patients and lead them on a path to recovery. If they make a mistake, prescribe the wrong medication, make the wrong cut or provide the wrong treatment, their conscience is not the only thing at risk: the life and livelihood of their patient could hang in the balance, both emotionally and physically.

Nevertheless, medical professionals do make mistakes, and patients do pay the consequences in some situations. Whether or not these medical professionals knew better is beside the point. That is the burden they accept when they become a medical professional.

If they knowingly make a mistake, sometimes the remorse and their apologies of a medical professional are not enough. In any case, if you believe you or a loved one has wrongfully suffered from medical mistakes, a consultation with one of our attorneys may be the next step. Our experience and determination to accountability can give peace of mind--and maybe even justice--to your situation.
