Understand Your Rights

Doctors, nurses, and assistants are required by law to follow a strict " care structure," and also be able to provide the proper medical treatment by licensed medical professionals. Medical malpractice is when a physician has failed to reasonably care for a patient as a physician should have done.

What exactly is Medical Negligence?

Medical negligence happens when a doctor does something illegally that a physician would not do or fails to do checks when treating a patient. Medical Negligence can happen in multiple situations, such as:

  • Delivery injuries and mishaps.
  • Mistaken amputation
  • Misuse of medical device or prescription drugs.
  • When a physician has made the right diagnosis, but then fails to recommend the proper treatment.
  • The physician fails to gain the consent of the patient for a surgical procedure.
  • To delay or fail in diagnosing a disease.
  • A anesthesia-related mistake during operation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Certification Required for a Malpractice Case?

Before we determine if a malpractice case exists, we need a medical expert to carefully review the medical care in question to determine if the patient received inappropriate care and if that care caused substantial injuries to the patient. We have access to board certified experts that will conduct a complete review of the cases we believe have merit. Once the doctor has certified the case, a malpractice claim will be pursued against those who provide medical care.

How Much WIll I Recover?

If you have been injured as a result of medical negligence you may be entitled to recover:

1. May get compensation for physical disfigurement and impairment, this may include compensation for a physical disability or scars as a result of the injuries you sustained in the accident.

3. Non-economic damages, which include loss of quality of life, emotional, pain, and suffering.

Do I have to Pay Back Health Insurance?
