Therapeutic Judgment Errors

Failing to Recommend the Right Treatment for Disease

Once a doctor has successfully diagnosed a patient's disease, the next step is to recommend the proper course of treatment to help the patient recover. For every disease, there are professional guidelines delineating acceptable forms of treatment. If the doctor fails to prescribe the right therapy, the disease will continue to progress.

If you or a loved one suffered serious harm because a diagnosed disease was left untreated or was improperly treated, your doctor may be guilty of medical negligence or medical malpractice. By failing to follow the "rules of the road" for their profession, negligent doctors put our whole society at risk.

For more than 30 years, the attorneys of Watson & Carroll PC LLO have helped individuals recover compensation for serious medical injuries and wrongful death claims. Our law office provides experienced, focused and personal representation. To tell your story, please call 402-991-2100 or contact us online today.

Watson & Carroll PC LLO has represented plaintiffs for almost 30 years. They have experience handling the complex litigation that occurs when medicine and the law intersect. Our firm has handled many cases in which doctors failed to recommend the appropriate corrective intervention for a diagnosed disease. For example, some doctors:

  • Fail to send a heart attack patient to a Cardiologist.
  • Fail to send critically ill or injured patients to the emergency room.
  • Fail to administer clot dissolving medicine (such as t-PA) or antiplatelet medicine to patients who are or may be suffering a stroke.
  • Fail to order a C-section birth when the mother's or fetus' life may be in danger.
  • Fail to ensure that prescribed drugs won't dangerously interact with medication the patient is already taking.

After a doctor recommends the correct treatment or prescription, it is necessary to correctly perform the therapy, to ensure the patient receives the right medication, and to ensure that the medication is properly administered.

If you or a loved one suffered injuries as the result of medical negligence or inappropriate therapy or treatment, call our office today at 402-991-2100 or contact us online to schedule a free consultation with Watson & Carroll PC LLO.
