Decatur Urgent Care Malpractice Lawyers Fighting For You
Get the law firm with healthcare expertise
Urgent care centers have become increasingly common facilities for treating a wide range of medical issues. Often called walk-in clinics, urgent care centers often provide emergency medical care or primary care for patients without an appointment seven days a week.
Many of the injuries or illnesses treated in urgent care centers are minor. Patients who require more serious medical care are normally transferred from an urgent care facility to a traditional emergency room in a hospital.
Unfortunately, mistakes sometimes happen at urgent care facilities. When they do, the consequences can be serious. That’s why it’s critical that you talk to an urgent care malpractice attorney right away if you believe mistakes were made which resulted in a serious illness or injury. That’s why we want to meet with you at Kurle Justus, LLC, right away.
What are common urgent care malpractice cases?
Medical malpractice at urgent care facilities can cover a wide range. In general, these cases can involve any mistakes made by medical professionals which results in a serious injury or illness. Examples of urgent care malpractice cases include:
- Misdiagnosis of a medical condition
- Medication error (wrong medication, wrong dosage amount, etc.)
- Delay in treatment
- Staffing shortage at an urgent care facility
- Mistakes made by unskilled staff members
- Unsanitary conditions at an urgent care facility
- Failure to perform the necessary medical tests
The stakes are high when it comes to treating someone’s medical condition. If a doctor, nurse, or another medical professional makes a mistake, you or a family member could experience serious, life-threatening medical problems. That’s why it’s critical that you act right away if you believe an error occurred due to the negligent or reckless behavior of medical professionals at an urgent care facility.
What makes urgent care malpractice cases complicated?
You might think you don’t need a lawyer if you or a family member were harmed due to mistakes made by a medical professional at an urgent care facility. All you have to do is report your medical issue to your insurance company and they’ll take care of everything, right? Don’t be so sure. In many cases, many urgent care malpractice claims turn out to be far more complicated than many people suspect. Some of the reasons why include:
- The urgent care facility claims they did everything right.
- The urgent care facility denies any wrongdoing.
- The urgent care facility insists they treated you in a timely manner.
- The urgent care facility claims your injury or illness occurred after your treatment.
- The urgent care facility’s insurance company denies your claim.
Why would an urgent care facility react this way? Because there’s often a lot of money at stake when it comes to medical malpractice cases. Depending on the severity of your injury or illness, your medical bills, and other related expenses (including loss of income during your recovery) can quickly add up to thousands or even millions of dollars. That’s why many urgent care centers hire a team of attorneys to defend their actions. That’s why we want to meet with you right away.
