Do You Need a Medical Lawyer?
Every year in the United States, medical malpractice results in as many as 100,000 deaths and thousands more serious injuries. Contrary to popular belief, only a small percentage – less than 15% – of these victims ever contact a medical lawyer for legal representation. Nevertheless, these individuals and their families have the legal right to hold responsible parties accountable for the damages suffered.
Any individual who suspects that medical malpractice is to blame for an injury or death should consult with a medical lawyer as soon as possible. For instance, if you or your loved one has suffered a(n):
- surgical error – including surgery on the wrong body part, an instrument is left behind and anesthesia mistakes
- medication error – including an overdose, a missed dose and the wrong medication
- obstetric error – such as damage to the mother or infant during the delivery process
- misdiagnosis— including missed diagnosis, wrong diagnosis and failure to diagnose
- laboratory mistake – particularly those that result in diagnosis errors
—it’s in your best interest to contact a medical lawyer. You may have a legal claim to compensation for your injuries and losses.
Obtaining Compensation: A Medical Lawyer Can Help
A medical lawyer can evaluate your case to determine your eligibility to file a legal claim. Depending on the circumstances, you may be entitled to compensation for both monetary and non-monetary damages such as:
- medical costs and other expenses related to the treatment of your injury
- missed wages and, in the case of permanent disability, loss of earning capacity
- physical pain and suffering
- emotional anguish
If you are filing a case on behalf of a family member, you may be entitled to money for:
- funeral expenses
- loss of financial support
- loss of companionship
- other losses suffered due to the death of your loved one
Be aware, however, that the time you have to file a legal claim is limited by law. As soon as you suspect you have a case of malpractice, you should contact a medical lawyer.
