Medical Malpractice FAQ
To help you best understand the situation that you are getting involved in, we have put together a few of the most commonly asked questions regarding medical malpractice. They include the following:
How do I know if I have a case or not?
Bad experiences do not always equate to malpractice; it is important to realize that circumstances do not always go according to plan. If, however, you have suffered from negligence, carelessness or reckless behavior (and you can prove that your injuries and suffering are the direct result of this behavior), you might have a case. Contact our firm to discuss the details of your situation so that we can help you determine whether or not you can seek monetary compensation.
Are medical malpractice cases usually settled or do they go to court?
These cases are wildly complex; most cases are taken to court and require a dedicated personal injury attorney to protect your rights. Without the proper amount of assistance, they can be time consuming, exhausting and stressful.
Can cases be filed against someone other than your doctor?
The case does not have to be against a doctor. Any medical professional or individual that provides health care, such as a nurse, pharmacist or technician, can be on the receiving end of a medical malpractice suit.
How much can I expect from an average settlement?
Settlements vary from case to case; usually, if the case is successful, the settlement will cover past, present and future expenses for medical treatment covering injuries caused by the malpractice. It will also help cover the non-physical damages you've suffered. Each case, however, is different and to fully understand how much settlement you deserve, it is vital that you contact a knowledgeable lawyer.
