Doctors Being at Fault
If a physician tells you that something has occurred because it was their fault, you should ask that physician for a copy of your medical records. You should take them to a seasoned medical malpractice lawyer who can perform an evaluation for you. Here at Morgenstern and Herd we have a medical background. We evaluate and look at our client’s medical records in order to determine whether or not we can obtain an expert who will testify on your behalf and help seek recovery for the injuries that occurred to a physician, especially a physician who admits he’s at fault.

Failure to Diagnose
When you have a medical condition you present with certain physical signs and traits as well as complaints of symptoms. When enough signs are present and accompanied by a clinical presentation of symptoms then a physician is obligated to recognize those signs and symptoms and diagnose your condition. When that doesn’t happen and it leads to physical damages or worsening of the condition that failure to diagnose is actionable.
ROP stands for Retinopathy of Prematurity. When babies are born before 40 weeks, 38 weeks gestational time, the optic nerve doesn’t develop appropriately and there are procedures that are well-known that have a very very high success rate for taking care of that optic nerve so that a baby’s vision is preserved. If your baby had ROP or Retinopathy of Prematurity and was not treated and has lost vision then you have a likely medical malpractice claim.
How You Can Determine if You Have a Case
Not every bad outcome means that the surgeon has deviated from the standard of care, so just because you have a bad result doesn’t mean that the doctor didn’t provide you with reasonable care. If you suspect that a bad outcome is the result of negligent care or the failure of the surgeon to provide you with care that would be the minimum care that would be accepted under the reasonable standards of care, you should hire a medical malpractice lawyer so that the lawyer can help you obtain the records and perform an evaluation with experts.
