Memphis Delayed Treatment Lawyers

We regularly trust that medical professionals will not only correctly diagnose any injury or illness we may have, but will treat ailments properly and promptly. Sadly, this does not always happen and negligence on the part of medical professionals can lead to dangerously delayed treatment. When a medical professional fails to provide prompt care to an individual, innocent patients can be left with exacerbated injuries, emotional trauma, and extensive medical bills.

At John Michael Bailey Injury Lawyers, our medical malpractice attorneys believe that no individual should have to suffer at the hands of a doctor who failed to take proper action. Our legal team is dedicated to holding these medical professionals accountable for the damages they cause to patients and sending a strong message to the medical community that such negligence will not go unpunished.

Consequences of Delayed Treatment

Delayed treatment can have a number of adverse effects on a patient, some of the most serious including:

  • Prolonged illness
  • Worsening of an underlying condition
  • Additional medical expenses
  • Lost wages from extended time off work
  • Extended recovery time
  • Taking unnecessary medication
  • Death

Individuals seeking medical attention should be able to expect the best care possible from medical professionals when they are facing a serious illness or injury. When doctors and other professionals fail to uphold this responsibility, delayed treatment may take place and lead to life-changing consequences for patients. At John Michael Bailey Injury Lawyers, we have the experience necessary to build a strong case against careless medical professionals and help victims pursue the compensation they need for their unnecessary, prolonged suffering.
