Undergoing a medical procedure can be an overwhelming situation for patients, which is why medical professionals and facilities take the time to detail the procedure and explain the known risks and potential issues that could arise. Nonetheless, when issues do occur, patients will often seek to blame the doctor, surgeon, clinic or hospital for the additional costs, pain and struggles experienced.
Just because a surgery, treatment plan or procedure does not go as planned does not mean that errors or mistakes were made. As such, medical professionals are prepared to act because they are often subjected to medical malpractice actions.
