Medical Malpractice Because The Doctor Is Not In
A disturbing new trend in medicine is for a patient to go to the emergency room or doctor’s office and be sent home without even seeing a doctor. All too often the P. A. (physician’s assistant) will not recognize the severity of the patient’s condition. Sometimes the patient does not even realize that he or she has actually seen a P. A. instead of a doctor. In the first half of 1999, Pajcic & Pajcic recovered six-figure settlements in two such cases of misdiagnosis by a P. A. We have made similar recoveries in the past and have several more cases pending where the patient never even saw the doctor.
