I got a couple of new books over the weekend from Magrudy's Warehouse Sale. Among them is Barry Reed's best selling court drama, TheVerdict.
The novel is about down-on-his luck lawyer who tries a medical malpractice case against two prominent doctors whose negligence caused a pregnant woman to go into coma. The book maybe written in 1980 but its theme medical malpractice is more resounding these days. Every now and then, we read about professionals perform their trade in a way that causes harm to their patients.
So what is one to do to avoid such predicament? First, always seek a second opinion. The leading cause of medical malpractice these days is misdiagnosis. Always verify from other professionals if you need the kind of treatment or lack thereof.
Secondly, do not panic if you signed a waiver form prior to a medical procedure. This will not be honored in court.
Third, if you suspect or feel you suffer from malpractice, immediately seek a medical malpractice lawyer. There is no reason that you should be burdened with debt or pain. A family run firm called Fuller & Fuller, lawyers give free consultations to work out if the case is strong enough.
Experienced medical malpractice attorneys of Fuller & Fuller had been serving clients for the past 35 years. They have office in Vancouver, Tacoma, Spokane, and throughout the state of Washington.
