The Difficulty in Medical Malpractice
Just because your doctor makes a mistake, it does not automatically make it a medical malpractice claim. This type of case is difficult because you must prove that you suffered additional injury, harm, or pain and suffering because of the mistake. An experienced attorney will know how to make the connections to prove that your doctor’s negligence caused you additional harm.
Payment for Your Claims
The results of a medical malpractice issue can take a toll on you physically, emotionally, and financially. While many people are concerned about how far a settlement can go to cover their costs, the damages included in a medical malpractice case include more than just the past medical bills. Compensation for damage caused by a medical malpractice claim can include:
- Past, present, and future medical expenses;
- Lost wages;
- Loss of earning capacity;
- Pain and suffering;
- Disfigurement and scarring;
- Loss of opportunities;
- Loss of consortium;
…and other costs that are reasonably related to your claims of medical malpractice.
On top of being compensated financially, many victims of medical malpractice claims also feel better about putting the medical professional on notice that the level of care provided for them is not acceptable for other patients. Typically, it usually takes only one lawsuit from a patient to make a doctor step up their quality of care for future patients.
