Compensation for Malpractice Victims

What exactly does medical malpractice mean? This legal term means that a doctor or other medical professional fails to provide competent care, resulting in harm to the patient. Malpractice can take many forms, including:

  • Failure to diagnosis;
  • Misdiagnosis;
  • Improperly filling prescriptions;
  • Prescribing the wrong medication;
  • Damage from surgery errors;
  • Childbirth injuries; and
  • Anesthesia errors.

Medical professionals are required to provide a certain standard of care to their patients. When a doctor or other provider fails to meet that standard of care by acting negligently, he or she may be held responsible for the patient’s damages. It is important to note that the medical professional’s actions must have caused the patient’s harm. Additionally, sometimes patients suffer harm or even death in cases that are not considered malpractice. For a case to qualify as medical malpractice, the doctor or other professional must have acted incompetently; that is, not as a competent provider would in a similar situation.

If a patient did suffer harm as a result of a medical professional’s negligence or intentional actions, the patient may seek financial compensation for that harm. Often, malpractice victims seek damages such as medical bills, emotional pain and suffering, physical pain and suffering, and lost wages. If you suffered damages due to a negligent medical provider, you should consult a lawyer immediately. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your damages.

How Can a Lawyer Help Me?

Medical malpractice cases can be quite complex, and it can be difficult to determine who exactly is responsible. The individual medical professional, the office or hospital, or other third parties may all be liable in your case. Every malpractice claim depends on the specific facts involved. State law also dictates limitations on how long a victim can wait before filing a malpractice case.

An experienced personal injury or malpractice lawyer can analyze the circumstances of your case to determine who is responsible. Often, medical experts are required to help malpractice victims win justice. Your attorney can work with the needed experts to ensure your best possible results.
