Recovering from an injury or illness can be trying, even when you receive the proper medical treatment you need. Unfortunately, if medical professionals fail to provide you with the timely, correct care you require, this improper treatment can hinder your recovery and even lead to other frustrating complications. In these situations, negligent doctors, pharmacists, and other healthcare practitioners can be held accountable for this medical malpractice.

Improper treatment can be generally defined as any circumstance in which a patient’s condition is not handled appropriately. The attorney at the Cottrell Law Office can help victims of improper treatment in Arkansas fight for compensation for the damages they were forced to endure due to this terrible act of negligence.

Common Types of Improper Treatment

From delaying treatment to forcing patients to endure the pain and recovery of an unnecessary surgery, improper treatment can take a toll on your health.

Common improper treatment includes:

  • Inadequate pre- or post-operative care
  • Unnecessary surgery
  • Wrong site surgery
  • Tools left in the body after surgery
  • Pharmaceutical mistakes such as incorrect dosage

You should not have to endure additional physical pain, emotional trauma, recovery time, and expensive medical bills because a medical professional failed to treat your condition properly.
