What is delayed treatment?
Some medical conditions require prompt attention, and any delay can result in serious complications and further suffering. Whether this is in the form of an immediate, life-threatening injury, or a time sensitive illness that requires prompt diagnosis and treatment, when a delay in treatment results in the worsening of an individual’s condition, the responsible medical practitioner could face legal action in the form of a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Do all delays in treatment qualify as medical malpractice?
Not all instances of delayed treatment will qualify for a medical malpractice lawsuit. In some cases, a delay in treatment will not affect a patient’s ultimate prognosis and will not subject the victim to any further harm or suffering, and these cases may not qualify for a medical malpractice claim. In other cases, however, a delay in treatment could significantly harm an individual’s health and could worsen their overall condition. In the most severe cases, a delay in treatment could result in the death of an injured or ill individual.

What costs can be covered through a delayed treatment lawsuit?
Individuals who have suffered harm because of a delay in treatment could suffer a range of losses as a result, for which they could potentially receive compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit. These damages could cover everything from the costs of additional medical care to address the consequences of a delay in treatment to the wrongful death costs that a family may incur as a result of a loved one’s untimely passing due to a delay in medical treatment.
