Medical Malpractice:

Unsatisfactory Results

No medical procedure is ever guaranteed to be 100% successful, nor is any patient ever guaranteed to be happy with the result of his or her procedure.  Yet, unsatisfactory results may be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit, provided there is something deeper at issue than disappointment. In the medical field, there is an expected "medical standard of care" that professionals must adhere to; it is the behavior that is exhibited by all prudent, reasonable medical workers. A doctor is required to be competent in his or her profession, and if unsatisfactory results are a result of incompetence or negligence in some area, patients may be able to recover damages. It is advisable to consult an experienced medical malpractice attorney to determine whether there are grounds to continue with a lawsuit.
