Tulsa Medical Malpractice Attorney
Due to the fact that physicians and other medical professionals are considered experts in the vocation of caring for our medical needs, we trust their judgment in performing surgery, issuing a diagnosis, and writing and dispensing prescriptions. Even though we continue to hear reports of physicians, surgeons, and other healthcare professionals making life-threatening, life-altering, and sometimes fatal decisions and mistakes, patients are often reluctant to question these professionals fearful that it will be interpreted as being disrespectful.

In a lawsuit involving possible medical malpractice, there is a specific question that must be satisfactorily answered to in order to determine if professional standards have been met: “Would a reasonable person with the defendant’s plaintiff’s job title make the same choices he or she did in the same circumstances?” In other words, is what the physician or other healthcare provider prescribed the typical standard treatment for the ailment, or condition? If it is, but it turns out to be ineffective, the physician, or healthcare professional is not necessarily in error, or guilty of malpractice, but it can simply mean the treatment was not as effective on you or the healthcare professional thought it would be. However, if the healthcare provider prescribes a form of treatment that is considered nonstandard, such as possibly prescribing a medication that is new on the market instead of a medication normally prescribed for your ailment, or condition, and the new medication harms you in some way, the prescribing physician may be held responsible for your injuries in addition to the drug manufacturer.
