Urgent care centers are stand-alone medical facilities that offer treatment for everything from the flu to a broken bone. While they don’t treat patients for life-threatening conditions, a lot of people seek medical attention at these walk-in clinics and expect the same level of care they’d receive at an emergency room, or from a primary care physician or other medical provider.
Just like with any other healthcare facility, mistakes due to negligence can and do happen at urgent care centers, and the results can be disastrous. Through no fault of your own, you could be seriously injured or harmed ─ all because someone was being careless.
Can I sue an urgent care clinic?
Urgent care centers have the same responsibility as other healthcare providers to give their patients appropriate and quality care. If you were injured or suffered harm at the hands of urgent care personnel, you may be entitled to compensation through a medical malpractice claim.
Common forms of urgent care medical malpractice include:
- Misdiagnosis of a condition
- Prescription errors
- Delayed treatment of a condition
- Failure to treat a condition
- Clerical errors
- Improper counseling
Medical malpractice occurs at urgent care centers all the time, and many times it’s because the medical providers are required to work irregular shifts, long hours, and aren’t as highly-trained as other healthcare professionals.
