When you are sick, you trust doctors and other professionals to take care of you. Sometimes things go wrong and there could be errors or accidents during medical exams and procedures. When this occurs, you might have the grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Our medical malpractice lawyers are very knowledgeable in the field of medicine and can help several different types of medical malpractice such as:
- Anesthesia Errors
- Hospital Negligence
- Birth Injuries
- Surgical Errors
- Misdiagnosis/Failure To Diagnose
Our medical malpractice lawyers will show that the healthcare professionals failed to provide what is deemed as an appropriate standard of care. They will also use evidence to show that the negligence caused even more harm to the patient including more pain and suffering, post-traumatic stress disorder and potentially future medical expenses to recover fully.
What Kind Of Damages Can I Receive In A Medical Malpractice Case?
In medical malpractice cases, there are three types of damages that you can acquire if the case is successful. First is compensatory damages which cover past and future medical costs. It also covers any lost wages from the time you were too injured or sick to work. The second type is non-economic damages which include compensation for things like pain and suffering, mental anguish and compensation if you lost a body part. And the third time is something called Punitive Damages. Although rare, if the healthcare professional acted maliciously with malintent, they will be forced to pay even more money as punishment for their blatant wrongdoing.
Grounds for a personal injury lawsuit is defined by an injury that is sustained due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another person. In some cases, such as product liability or construction accidents there could be multiple parties that are responsible for your injury. Therefore, it’s important to find a personal injury attorney who can help you maximize your claim. There is a statute of limitations for most personal injury cases so if you or a loved one was injured through no fault of your own, then it’s important to act quickly. Our personal injury lawyers are known for aggressive representation in a variety of cases including:
- Car Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Construction Accidents
- Dog Bite Injuries
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Nursing Home Abuse/Neglect
- Product Liability
- Truck Accidents
- Wrongful Death
What Damages Am I Entitled To For A Personal Injury Lawsuit?
Similar to medical malpractice, you are entitled to economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages will help you get compensation for lost wages, past and future medical expenses as well as property damaged that was sustained at the time of injury. For example, economic damages would also help cover the cost of your car repair if you were injured in a car accident. Non-economic damages cover things that are less tangible such as pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of limbs and enjoyment of life.
