Why Hire a Lawyer for Delay in Treatment?
We trust that our doctors will make correct medical decisions, and that when they make the recommendation to hold off on receiving treatment, they are doing so with good reason. However, there are numerous reasons why this may not be the case:
- The doctor may have mistaken one medical condition for another and engaged in treatment for the incorrect condition.
- In an effort to avoid potential liability, the doctor may avoid a type of treatment which he or she considers risky or too aggressive.
- A doctor may either miss the signs of a condition, or underestimate how serious the condition may be.
