Medical care is a necessary part of modern life in the United States. Americans live decades longer than they did only a couple of generations ago. The technology available to physicians to monitor, evaluate, and manage medical conditions multiplies and becomes more advanced every year. The technology available to surgeons to perform all manner of procedures throughout the human body has exploded with the advancement of computers and imaging technology. We are finding more problems with people’s health at different stages of disease and treating them in an ever-wider array of ways. This means that modern medicine is complex and can often be confusing and overwhelming for patients.
Even though more information about medicine is available to us, we still must place a great deal of trust in our doctors to offer safe treatment options, not to mention perform procedures responsibly when we are under anesthesia. When something seems to have gone wrong during medical care, it can be frightening and frustrating. Answers can be difficult to come by. Sometimes, turning to an attorney who can investigate the medical record and consult with an outside physician is the only way to get real answers.
