Doctors and other healthcare workers are expected to provide patients with care that meets a certain standard when diagnosing and treating them. They are also expected to behave ethically.
Sometimes, they fail to do so. When this happens, patients may file claims or lawsuits for compensation accordingly. This is sometimes an option even if a patient did not experience any physical harm as a result of a medical professional’s actions or behavior.
At the Weitz Firm, LLC, a Chester County, Pennsylvania unethical behavior and medical malpractice attorney is prepared to review your case and explain whether you should seek compensation. Additionally, if you decide to hire us, we will fight aggressively to help you recover what you may be owed.
The vast majority of the time, a patient or their surviving loved ones has the right to file a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit if a negligent healthcare professional caused harm that could have been avoided had they not been careless.
However, there are instances when it may be possible to seek compensation with the help of a medical malpractice attorney even when a patient did not experience any physiological harm. This is an option when it can be shown that a doctor or other such professional engaged in unethical behavior.
Unethical behavior can take various forms. The following are just a few examples:
Again, those are just some examples. If you lack the proper experience or familiarity with the applicable laws, you may understandably not be certain whether a medical professional’s behavior qualifies as unethical. Thus, while you may suspect you have grounds to take legal action against a doctor or other such party, you might not know for certain if this is an option.
The best way to learn whether you are justified in filing an unethical behavior claim or lawsuit is to review your case with a legal professional who has experience handling such matters. One of our Chester County unethical behavior attorneys will answer your questions and help you better understand whether a doctor or other medical professional behaved in a manner that gives you legitimate reason to seek compensation.
Proving that a medical professional engaged in a degree of unethical behavior that warrants legal action can be remarkably difficult.
