Family Doctor Errors Lawsuits

Our Cody, Wyoming Law Firm Handles Family Doctor Error Cases

When experiencing any type of health issue, a family practitioner is usually the first point of contact for most people. While most family practitioners practice diligently and skillfully, there are many instances every year of family practitioners causing serious harm or death to patients as a result of their failure to make a necessary referral.

Failure to Make a Necessary Referral

One of the most serious forms of medical malpractice a family doctor can make is failing to recognize that patient may be suffering form a rare or complex condition, that would require a referral to a specialist physician. While family doctors possess a reasonable level of skill and experience in a wide range of medical disciplines—including obstetrics, gynecology, surgery, pediatric medicine, internal medicine and psychiatric medicine—there are occasions when a specialist should be involved in a patient’s treatment.

When doctors fail to make an appropriate referral in a timely manner, patients can be put at risk, causing:

  • Additional or unnecessary suffering
  • Reduced chances of making a full recovery
  • The need for more invasive or painful treatment
  • Physiological injuries
  • Crippling financial expense

How Family Doctors May Fail to Make an Appropriate Referral

  • Failure to properly evaluate a patient’s family and medical history
  • Failure to carry out appropriate diagnostic studies
  • Failure to order appropriate diagnostic lab work
  • Failure to screen for cancer, heart disease and other conditions
