Taking Action Against Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice can have devastating implications for patients, and its perpetrators should not be able to avoid consequences for their actions.
Learn how you can take action against medical malpractice and recover compensation for any injuries you sustained because of it.
Proving Medical Malpractice
In order to prove medical malpractice, you and your attorneys will need to demonstrate the following:
Duty: The medical practitioner owed you a duty of care acceptable by medical standards.
Dereliction: The medical practitioner failed in this duty of care.
Damages: You suffered an injury.
Direct cause: The medical practitioner’s failure in the duty of care directly led to your injury.
Recovering Compensation for Medical Malpractice
There is no doubt that medical malpractice can forever alter a victim’s life. Victims may be left with serious injuries that require ongoing treatment, adding up to hundreds of thousands of dollars (if not more) in medical bills and lost wages.
Victims should not have to pay for these sudden expenses out of their own pocket when a negligent medical practitioner is responsible.
With the help of a qualified attorney, you may be able to recover the following damages:
Past and future medical expenses
Pain and suffering
