What you need to know about medical malpractice
Malpractice cases can be very complex, requiring specialized legal and medical expertise to prove the healthcare provider’s liability. Victims of medical malpractice have a right to a monetary settlement for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, ongoing care, diminished earning capacity, lost income, and other costs and losses.
You may have a case if a physician, surgeon or other healthcare professional…
- Fails to read test results
- Operates on the wrong body part
- Fails to diagnose an illness correctly
- Prescribes medications that don’t go together
- Administers too much or too little anesthesia
- Injures a baby during delivery
- Uses contaminated instruments
Lawsuits aren’t always the answer, but holding healthcare providers accountable helps ensure the quality standards we all depend on. If you’ve been injured while under a medical professional’s care, call us right away—waiting beyond the “statute of limitations” means you won’t be able to file a legal claim.
