Medical malpractice: apology laws don't seem to work

Medical errors are a scary reality. Far too often medical professionals make mistakes that harm patients. These mishaps can occur in several ways, including through misdiagnosis, surgical error and medication mistakes. Regardless of how these errors occur, an injured patient may be able to pursue a medical malpractice claim in hopes of recovering their damages and imposing accountability. In many of these cases a doctor will flat out apologize for the mistake. But can that be used as evidence of negligence?

Personal injury claims and pain and suffering damages

If you've recently been injured in a motor vehicle accident, then you're probably feeling the financial ramifications of that event. Medical bills can quickly become overwhelming, and missing work to focus on your recovery can lead to lost wages. Taken together, you can be left in a precarious financial predicament. Fortunately, a personal injury lawsuit may help alleviate these losses if the accident that left you hurt was caused by the negligence of another.
