Typically, car accidents are caused by negligent drivers who fail to observe rules of the road, failing to pay attention to other vehicles, distance between other cars, maintain their vehicles, exceeding the speed limit, etc. However, a driver’s ability to pay attention to the conditions of the road and the flow of the traffic can be affected by the carelessness of a trusted doctor or pharmacist.
We trust licensed and trained professionals without question. Whether its a doctor or a pharmacist or a mechanic, we assume the professional we hire to perform a service or prescribe medicine is trustworthy and holds our interest as a priority. However, at times these professionals makes unintended mistakes or place their own interest and profit above the safety of their customers and patients. When it comes to prescribing medicine, it is easy to misdiagnose a disease. If a doctor fails to perform sufficient tests or fails to properly review findings, then an illness may be misdiagnosed and the wrong medicine and treatment may be prescribed.
