3 Common Signs of Military Medical Malpractice

June 30, 2015

Whenever you or someone you love needs more intensive medical care, the expectation is that you can rely on a hospital or other medical facility to deliver the treatments needed. Tragically, however, medical negligence can occur at any health care facility – including those dedicated to treating members of the U.S. military and their families.

Below, we’ll point out some of the more common signs that military medical malpractice has occurred. Understanding what the red flags of malpractice are can help you figure out when to reach out for more information about your rights and options for holding negligent military medical professionals accountable for harming you/your loved one(s).

Red Flags You May Have Been the Victim of Military Medical Malpractice

Some signs that you may have been the target of military medical malpractice can include that:

1 – Your doctor diagnoses you with minimal (or no) medical testing.

Diagnosing medical conditions can be an involved process that typically requires talking to people about their symptoms, performing certain medical testing and reviewing those test results. Such medical testing, which will vary according to the symptoms people have, may include (but isn’t limited to):

  • Blood work
  • MRIs or CT scans
  • Biopsies.

So, if you’ve been diagnosed with a moderate to severe medical condition and you haven’t undergone any (or the usual) diagnostic testing, this may be an indication that you have been the target of military medical malpractice.

2 – You have symptoms that don’t fit your doctor’s diagnosis.

Some studies have found that medical professionals get as many as 1 in every 25 diagnoses wrong. So, if you’ve been diagnosed with a condition and you are experiencing symptoms that don’t fit the diagnosis, again, it may be a sign of military medical malpractice – and it’s definitely time to start asking more questions about your condition and doctor.

3 – Your condition is getting worse even though you are undergoing the prescribed treatment(s).

When the treatments you are receiving are not resulting in any improvements in your condition, this can be another red flag that you may have been misdiagnosed and that you are not getting the right treatments.

In these situations, it can be essential to get a second or even third opinion to find out if your first doctor did, in fact, make mistakes in diagnosing you and/or prescribing you treatments.

The Bottom Line: If You Suspect Medical Mistakes & Medical Negligence…

  • Get another opinion from another doctor.
