In our recent blog post, we discussed the case of a dentist who was accused of rendering treatments that weren’t necessary. While this might seem like a unique case, it really isn’t. Some medical professionals put profits before patients and do things like this.
Imagine what can happen to patients when doctors make this decision. Doctors might decide to render unnecessary treatments, but the patient might end up suffering because of this. Think about it this way — what if a doctor performs an unnecessary surgery on a patient and the patient ends up suffering an infection after the procedure?
That patient had a surgery he or she didn’t need. On top of that, now the patient has to try to overcome an infection. All of this occurred because a doctor performed an unnecessary procedure.
We know that you might not want to think about this ever happening to you. If it does happen, it is imperative that you know you have options to deal with the effects of the unnecessary treatments.
There is a difference between an elective procedure and an unnecessary procedure. An elective procedure is one that you know you don’t have to have, such as cosmetic surgeries. An unnecessary procedure is one that your doctor says you need — but you don’t. Understanding this difference can help you as you move forward with your case.
We can help you to determine the validity of your claim. We can subpoena your medical records to determine what your options are based on the circumstances of your case. Once we get the process started, we will fight for the compensation that you need.
