Recovering Compensation

After being made a victim of medical malpractice, as long as we can prove your case, you should receive compensation to help you deal with the economic and non-economic damages you’ve incurred as a result of the physician’s actions. Economic damages can help you cope with the following:

  • The cost of past and future medical bills
  • The cost of being unable to return to work
  • If your loved one passed away, the cost of funeral expenses

On the other hand, non-economic damages are designed to compensate victims for the intangible, yet very real damages they’ve incurred as a result of the act of malpractice. Non-economic damages can include the following:

  • Pain and suffering
  • The loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of companionship or guidance (if your loved one passed away)

Who's to Blame?

Medical Negligence

There are several ways in which a physician can behave negligently or with malicious intent and harm a patient as a result. Just some of the most common types of medical malpractice and negligence that we’ve seen over the years are as follows:

 

  • Errors during surgery, such as leaving surgical instruments in a patient’s body.
  • Failing to diagnose certain medical conditions timely, such as cancer, thereby allowing the cancer to spread before a diagnosis is made.
  • Failing to diagnose certain medical conditions altogether.
  • Anesthesia errors, such as administering too much or too little.
  • Medication errors, such as prescribing too high or too small of a dosage, or prescribing the wrong medication altogether.

Proving an Act of Medical Malpractice

To win a medical malpractice claim, you will have to prove several things. They are as follows:

  • You were the medical professional’s patient and that the medical professional owed you a duty of care.
  • The medical professional breached his or her duty of care by taking action (or inaction) that another well-trained and reasonable physician would not have.
  • You were harmed as a result of the breach of duty of care.
  • You sustained damages.

 

To prove your case, we will have to gather and assess all information pertaining to your injuries. This will include medical documents detailing the initial procedure/type of care your physician was to provide, where he or she went wrong, expert opinions on what would have been a more appropriate line of action, and more. We will also need to send information regarding exactly how the physician’s actions harmed you, what treatment you required to correct the issue, and any other relevant information to your case.

It was a very long and sometimes difficult process, but in the end it all came as a great relief, as if a heavy burden had been lifted from my back.
