When a patient is injured by a careless physician, a lot of questions arise. What caused the injury? Who is at fault? Will my physician take responsibility or be punished in some way? How do I hold liable parties accountable? How do I pay for this? How much recovery money will I be awarded? These are important questions, but not necessarily questions that can be immediately answered for a patient.
