Connecticut Sexual Abuse

How a misdiagnosis can lead to a medical malpractice claim

We've all had doctor visits where the medical professionals who are treating us take some basic information: the symptoms of our injury or illness; our heart rate; and our blood pressure. When Connecticut residents seek medical attention, they are looking for one thing: for the doctor to tell us what is wrong and give us a remedy. However, sometimes it isn't that simple.

Why consider settlement in a medical malpractice case?

Connecticut residents who are the victims of medical malpractice can experience life-altering problems from the botched treatment. Doctor errors in surgery, misdiagnosis and prescription medication mix-ups can result in injuries or a worsened medical condition, and then the patient is left to pick up the pieces. In this type of situation, one option could be a medical malpractice lawsuit. But, these types of cases are, oftentimes, complex. This is why many plaintiffs will consider the possibility of settling the case before trial.

Protect your rights when you suffer from medical malpractice

Millions of Americans suffer injuries or illness complications due to medical malpractice each year. Unfortunately, some people who suffer from medical malpractice may not realize it. Others might know that their doctors made a mistake, but they think that there is no way that they can prove it. Connecticut residents need to know that they have rights that they need to protect when they suffer from medical malpractice.

Sex abuse in Connecticut is one of the worst acts that can be committed. Often, it is a person who is in a position of power over a younger person.

Legal filings seek to take those who have been alleged to have committed sexual abuse to task and garner compensation for the victims.

According to recent study, misdiagnosis is common

When people in Connecticut who are suffering from a medical issue go to a doctor or hospital, there is a natural belief that they will receive an accurate diagnosis, and be given the correct medication or provided other methods of dealing with the problem. Most importantly though, they believe they will get better. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Misdiagnoses are common, which can lead to a worsened medical condition, even death.

While sexual abuse is a problem that is largely underreported in Connecticut and throughout the U.S., there are certain instances that become known and function as case studies. The prominence of certain cases has shed some light onto the problem, but still others are overshadowed. Those who have been subjected to childhood sex abuse should be aware that they have options not just to report what has happened, but also to receive compensation through a legal filing against the individual who perpetrated the abuse and the entities that knew about it.

High-profile case serves as guide for sex abuse victims

Sexual abuse of children is one of the worst crimes imaginable and there are many people in Connecticut who have been victimized and suffered lifelong aftereffects from it. This is a matter that will affect a person not just physically, but emotionally as well.
