Medical malpractice lawsuits are complicated by the fact that medical outcomes are not always guaranteed or predictable. There are accepted and appropriate risks with any procedure, even if it is performed correctly, that have to be weighed against the risks of doing nothing. It is not always easy to know what happened and why or what is medical malpractice.
If something does go wrong, do not automatically assume there was no malpractice. The doctor-patient and hospital-patient relationship is by its very nature a fraught and imbalanced one. It is entirely natural to want to believe medical professionals when they tell you nothing improper occurred after a procedure that did not go as intended.
