By Seeking Compensation, Medical Malpractice Survivors Also Seek Justice

stethoscope and gavelAt The Beasley Firm, we want victims of medical malpractice to know exactly what their rights and options are when it comes to a lawsuit. Sure, the goal is to help victims seek compensation, but it’s much more than that.

For many, justice is a top priority—and rightfully so. Justice does a lot for individuals harmed as a result of medical malpractice. It gives them peace of mind moving forward, knowing that the negligent party had to pay for their mistake.

Justice, though, does more over the long term than compensation on a larger scale. For the injured person, the focus is on their own recovery. But justice impacts others in the future. It protects them. Here’s how.

Setting a Standard for Protecting Patients

What is it that a lawsuit accomplishes? In terms of protecting future patients, a medical malpractice lawsuit can do a lot, especially when it is displayed in public view for all to see. The more the public sees of the negligent actions of a medical facility or professional, the more it forces that party to reevaluate.

Malpractice occurs because there are mistakes—mistakes that could be prevented with proper standards set in place. When lawsuits are filed, it forces the medical facility to improve upon their safety standards in order to prevent future issues.

As a result, hospitals get safer, and medical professionals are more prone to look out for potential issues. This means those who need to use the hospital’s services in the future receive more attention, more care, and less concern over mistakes.

Change is important. Our Philadelphia medical malpractice lawyers know this. As such, we work hard to guide victims of medical negligence through the complex legal matters to seek compensation and spark change.
