When we become ill, we are most likely to visit a doctor or medical professional to determine what is wrong and what the best course of treatment is. Although patients in Montana and elsewhere are likely to receive proper medical care, unfortunately human errors enter the medical profession, causing sometimes serious injuries to patients. When a patient is harmed by a medical mistake, this could mean additional medical treatment or even lifelong disabilities. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the rights afforded to patients harmed by medical malpractice.
