Medical Professionals & the Duty to Refer Patients

When a medical professional encounters a condition or illness that exceeds his or her level of expertise, they are legally expected to refer the patient to a specialist. Failing to do so in a timely manner could lead to serious and even fatal injuries or complications.

In situations such as these, medical professionals who fail to refer patients to specialists can be found to be negligent. If you are dealing with a catastrophic injury or medical condition that could have been treated had a medical professional referred you to a specialist, seek the help of The Scarlett Law Group.
