Denied Medical Care in WV?

If You Were Denied Your Right to Adequate Medical Treatment, Call a West Virginia Lawyer Now!

If you visit the emergency room, urgent care, or make an appointment with your doctor, you never expect that the doctor will refuse to treat you. We only expect attentive and prompt care to address our symptoms or injuries as soon as possible.

It is unfortunate that not all doctors know how to respond appropriately to a medical problem. Some conditions are also difficult to treat, and so doctors may not recognize the full extent of the injury or illness. The doctor may then refuse or deny medical treatment due to misinformation.

Why Do Doctors Deny Treatment?

In understaffed or hectic facilities especially, the entire medical staff—doctors included—are so overloaded that it becomes nearly impossible to give the patient enough attention. Doctors are shuffled from one room to the next, often only spending a few minutes at a time talking with the patient.

Keep in mind that some hospitals can turn away or deny medical treatment to a patient if the doctor believes that there is no injury or emergency present. However, if a doctor misdiagnoses or fails to see the symptoms of a more serious condition, then that is where malpractice occurs.

As West Virginia medical malpractice attorneys, we can investigate your case to determine if negligence did play a role in your case. If so, we can begin the steps to file a claim for compensation.

You may be entitled to compensation for the following:

  • Medical bills
  • Wages lost due to inability to work
  • Mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Punitive damages

At Berthold Law Firm, PLLC, we were particularly well-versed in these types of cases. We work closely with our clients to discuss their injuries and the treatments involved due to medical malpractice. We can help you if a doctor refused to provide you with medical care or denied giving you access to medication.
