Situations can happen when someone is ill or dies, and the first response is typically to think of a medical malpractice suit against the doctor or hospital that loved ones feel is responsible for the death. However, there are so many cases where people seek to sue and find they can not follow through with the case. This is because most of the cases were found to have no evidence of wrongdoing by the hospital, doctor or medical staff. The alleged injury to the patient or medical error had no evidence to support that they occurred.
For this reason, it is very important to collect any photographs or paperwork that can prove the issue at the time that the situation occurs. This can make a difference in the success of the case. While this is a challenge since the situation of injury or medical error typically involves strong emotions on the side of the loved ones and can involve coma or death on the part of the patient, it is still important that someone be aware and collect evidence to prove the situation occurred.
This evidence may not be used in a medical malpractice suit in the future. However, knowing what happened and having proof can be helpful to the patient’s medical charts as well, since it could involve giving them a medication that causes certain side effects. That can be easily resolved if there is evidence that medication was administered in error.
