Repercussions of medial malpractice

Cases of medical malpractice in Connecticut can result in a multitude of health and financial issues, and can take many different legal directions. The first and foremost concern is the well-being of the patient, as well as how a doctor's errors may lead to negative short and long term effects. Many factors, such as the failure to treat conditions and the concluding of exact damages, come into focus when determining the outcome of a medical malpractice case.

According to the Medical Malpractice Center, each state is permitted to delegate and legislate the majority of legal disputes per state-specific statutes only to a given state jurisdiction regarding medical malpractice. The medical malpractice tort law deals specifically with professional negligence. The Medical Malpractice Center also reveals that victims of malpractice must file suit no later than two years after the incident has occurred. Unfortunately, once the statutes of limitation in Connecticut tolls, patients may lose the ability to recover damages from the incident. Time is a crucial matter when it comes to seeking settlement from medical malpractice.

New Haven Register News covers various incidents of medical malpractice, and points out that, oftentimes, doctors are not held accountable for their errors. However, since the medical malpractice law took effect, the number of cases has decreased by 20 percent in Connecticut. Some argue that the reason behind this decrease in cases lies in opinion letters, which are a controversial topic on its own. The article also acknowledges the prior existence of a malpractice lawsuit screening process that has been in effect for years, but that many cases are dropped because opinion writers' certifications have failed to match with those of the defendants.
