Malpractice Lawsuit- If Only They Had Said: "We Are Sorry."

November 19, 2010

Time and time again I see the same fundamental principle at work when it comes to review reasons for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit. Time and time again, I have heard plaintiffs who suffered from personal injuries or who have seen friends and families being injured as a result of alleged medical malpractice, tell me: “if only they had said we are sorry.” or if only the doctor(s) would have taken the time to properly explain why something went wrong and how that was not as a result of negligence.

“If they would’ve sat me down and explained to me what actually happened and said, ‘I’m sorry for your loss,’ –– but they hid a lot of things,” she said. “And because of the secrecy in that, we thought, ‘OK, something’s up.’”

Joni Hahn’s medical malpractice lawsuit was dismissed when, lacking information, she concluded that her husband’s death was the result of malpractice. It turned out that it wasn’t, but only after having filed a lawsuit and going through litigation and discovery for three years.
