Nowadays, some doctors and medical professionals are being told that when they make an error in a patient’s case that it is “ok” to tell the patient that they are sorry for making an error in their case. The reason that this is being done is because hospitals and other medical offices think that by admitting the error, and apologizing for it, they lessen the chance that the patient will file a law suit against them.
The question of whether a patient should file a medical malpractice law suit is one that the patient must make on their own. If he or she has a family, it even may not be a bad idea to talk this decision over with them because they too.
If you have been injured by an error(s) from your doctor or hospital, and this error has caused you permanent and serious injuries, you must take into consideration how you will be able to live the rest of your life due to this error(s). In many instances “sorry” is not enough when a patient is faced with mounting medical bills and a decrease in their quality of life.
