Negligent Mistakes Doctors Make When Treating Broken Bones

When you have the unfortunate experience of breaking a bone, it's important to seek medical treatment immediately. Most doctors who provide treatment for broken bones will help care for your injury and help you heal in a timely manner. Sometimes doctors are negligent, though, and they can occasionally make an injury worse instead of better.

If you suspect that the medical care that you received made your injury worse, consult a medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible. A medical malpractice lawyer can help you determine whether the treatment exacerbated the problem. The following ways are just a few of the mistakes that may indicate you should receive compensation.

Mistake #1: Failure to Provide Adequate Treatment

If a doctor assessed your injury but then failed to treat your broken bone properly, you may have a case. The doctor should be able to treat your bone based on where the injury occurred and how severe it is.

Mistake #2: Failure to Administer Anesthesia or Pain Medication

When you seek treatment for a broken bone, you are likely to be in a great deal of pain. Your medical care provider should carefully administer pain medication or even anesthesia when necessary. If your doctor does not properly administer the medication, you may have experienced medical negligence since you were likely then made to suffer more than you should have from your injury.

Mistake #3: Failure to Properly Set the Bone

When you go to the doctor's office or the hospital with a broken bone, the doctor should properly set the bone. If your medical provider fails to do this important task well, that can lead to complications and make the injury worse. If the bone isn't set properly for healing, that may lead to painful processes, and another doctor may have to re-break the bone to re-set it if it is healing improperly.

Mistake #4: Failure to Diagnose the Broken Bone in a Timely Manner

The doctor you see for your broken bone should be able to diagnose the broken bone in a timely manner. If there are delays, that can prolong your suffering and may be evidence of medical negligence.

Finally, keep in mind that a medical malpractice attorney can help you determine how you should proceed. If your medical care did more harm than good, your attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve for the harm that was caused. You shouldn't suffer in silence when you deserved proper care for your injuries. For more information, contact firms like R.J. Marzella & Associates, P.C.

Have you ever picked up your phone and sent or read a text message while you were driving? Do you know just how dangerous that is? All that it takes is one split second for your life to change forever and to change someone else's life forever.

I saw him coming in my rear view mirror, but there was nothing that I could do about it. This accident happened over a year ago and I still suffer every day. My blog is filled with information that can help others that have been injured by texting drivers.
