Medical Malpractice and Automobile accidents injury

Medical malpractice and Automobile accidents injury:

The legal issues involved in a car accident usually involve personal injury law or wrongful death, rather than a medical malpractice lawsuit against a health care provider. However, the rate of medical malpractice lawsuits is relatively high in the emergency room, and there are various possible failings possible in medical care after a car accident. Patients are often seriously injured, and the consequences of a wrong medical decision can be poor (e.g. death, paralysis, etc.). Medical malpractice for car accidents can involve misdiagnosis or wrong treatment management. Perhaps surprisingly, failure to diagnose is also possible, such as the failure to diagnose a neck fracture after a car accident.
