How Does Medical Malpractice Happen?
 

Medical malpractice happens when a doctor, nurse, hospital, nursing home or other health care provider doesn’t follow the acceptable standard of care and causes their patient injury or death. Some types of medical malpractice cases include:

  • Failure to properly diagnose a medical condition

  • Failure to follow professionally accepted standard procedures

  • Failure to prevent infant injury at birth

  • Prescribing the wrong drugs or fail to consider drug interactions

  • Leaving instruments inside a patient or make other surgical mistakes.

Damages Available In A Medical Malpractice Case
 

  • Medical Expenses: Expenses related to medical care, hospitalization, surgeries, physical therapy, nursing, medication, and medical devices. If you require continuing care due to your injuries, those damages are also recoverable.

  • Wage Loss: If you are unable to return to work due to injury. This may include the recovery of benefits such as insurance and retirement plan contributions.

  • Pain and Suffering: If you are harmed due to medical malpractice you may recover compensation for the immediate and ongoing pain related to your ailment. This may also include emotional pain.

  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life: When an injury prevents you from doing the activities you enjoyed prior to the incident, you may recover damages for that loss. An example would be the inability to participate in sports if your injuries prevented you from doing so.

  • Wrongful Death: If you are a family member of a person fatally injured due to medical negligence you may have a claim for the loss of financial support that your loved one provided. You can also pursue funeral expenses and damages for loss of companionship due to a wrongful death case. 

  • Loss of Consortium: The spouse of a person seriously injured or killed due to medical negligence may recover damages related to their loss of marital benefits. Examples of loss of consortium damages include loss of affection, loss of emotional support, and loss of sexual relations.
