Otolaryngologists and ear, nose, and throat doctors (ENTs) specialize in the treatment of diseases and injuries to the ear, nose, and throat. They diagnose issues as simple as an ear infection all the way to attempting to fix issues that cause deafness. Many of these issues are instead made worse because of the negligent treatment provided by these doctors. A medical malpractice claim can get you the financial compensation you deserve.

Otolaryngologist/ENT Medical Malpractice
Otolaryngologists/ENTs are doctors who are highly educated in the diagnosis of issues related to the ear, nose, and throat, as well as treatment of those conditions and issues. These issues include allergies, ear infections, hearing loss, or even certain cancers of the neck and head. These complicated medical issues require a great deal of expertise, but when mistakes are made, those conditions can be made worse rather than be treated as they should.
However, when an Otolaryngologist/ENT makes a mistake that causes harm or leads to the death of a patient, they can be held responsible for that mistake. Proving a medical malpractice case can be difficult without the help of an experienced medical malpractice lawyer, but with the right legal assistance, you can get the financial compensation to which you are entitled.
Common Malpractice Claims Against Otolaryngologists/ENTs
Common claims for medical malpractice against Otolaryngologists/ENTs include, but are not limited to the following.
- Failure to Order Appropriate Test: Certain tests, such as an MRI or a CT scan can look inside the body and discover issues. When one should have been ordered but was not, harm can result.
- Failure to Properly Interpret Results: Incorrect interpretation of results can lead to missed diagnoses.
- Improper Medication: Certain diseases or conditions are easily treated with the right medication. If a doctor fails to properly prescribe a medicine, the harm that results can be the basis of a medical malpractice lawsuit.
