Fatal road accidents and serious injuries
Some episodes of malpractice and medical error are the result of road accidents.
People involved in road accidents can report serious damage that in some cases leads to death.
A prompt medical health intervention at the accident site can prevent adverse events and save patients' lives.
In case of serious injuries or the ones leading to death, in addition to the compensation coming from the insurance, it is possible to check whether the health intervention has taken place correctly and, if necessary, to request compensation from the medical structure for medical errors, too.
The two reimbursements are distinct and one must be requested from the insurance company and the other one from the healthcare facility.
The chronicle reports some cases of malpractice caused by delays in medical assistance after road accidents.
In August 2017, a boy from Torre del Greco, who was the victim of a car accident, died as a result of delayed relief, after waiting four hours to perform a CT angio in the hospital. (Source: Voce di Napoli)
