A Medical Malpractice Lawyer To Help Guide You Through The Process.
Medical professionals are some of the most trusted members of society. We place our health and well-being in their hands, expecting careful guidance, accurate treatment, and quality care. In most cases, we receive the highest standard of medical treatment but mistakes, whether they are caused by negligence or recklessness, do happen. The consequences of these mistakes are often devastating.
Errors on the part of a medical professional do more than break your trust, they greatly endanger your health. At times they are even fatal. The injuries and/or losses incurred are often long-standing and while there’s no way to undone what has been done, a medical malpractice claim may be the most appropriate path to follow. Medical professionals must be held accountable not only for the recovery of anyone who has suffered due to their negligence but also to prevent the same mistakes from occurring again.
Medical Malpractice Claims Process
These claims may be filed alongside a medical malpractice lawyer to seek compensation for injuries that occurred in hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices, pharmacies, nursing homes, treatment centers and other settings. Medical malpractice claims may be brought against any member of the healthcare profession who acted negligently or recklessly including physicians, nurses, and dentists.
Forms of medical malpractice include:
- Bed sores from nursing homes
- Surgical errors
- Childbirth injuries
- Anesthesia errors
- Errors in prescribing or administering medicine
- Practicing medicine without a license
After suffering a loss due to medical malpractice, you’re likely dealing with more than physical suffering, but also feelings of confusion, loss, betrayal, and grief. The compensation sought in medical malpractice claim may include both economic (medical bills, insurance claims, lost wages) and non-economic damages (pain and suffering, emotional duress). While not every negative experience with a medical professional warrants a malpractice claim, any act that leads to suffering, loss, or injury should be answered for. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer can help you get those answers and move forward with your life.
