Medical damages which are compensable for the patient
We rely on doctors and nurses who should heal and take care of us, but we know that health workers are human, so they sometimes make careless or evaluation errors that cause damage to health and at this point, you could be entitled to a compensation.
A wrong or late diagnosis that affects the quality of the patient's life to the point of jeopardizing it, creates a damage for "loss of chances" and it falls within the responsibility of the doctors, as the result of misconduct.
According to the most recent guidelines of the jurisprudence, the loss of the possibility of obtaining a favorable medical result determines in itself a compensable damage for the patient.
The loss of the opportunity to lead a better life due to a medical error is a health damage that is compensable regardless of the chance of recovery.
If the damage was caused by medical negligence, you have the right to obtain financial compensation because the malpractice laws protect the patient's rights.
In defense of doctors who are unjustly accused of error, it must be said that many professionals have been acquitted of negligence charges, in the absence of errors in the execution of health treatments.
