When you seek medical attention for an illness, condition or injury, you have the expectation of getting competent medical advice and treatment. If your medical condition becomes worse because of a doctor's carelessness, or you sustain injury due to a doctor's carelessness, you may be entitled to compensation.
Medical Malpractice involves claims against doctors and other healthcare practitioners, or facilities, that stem from a negligent error in the treatment or diagnosis of a medical condition.
Medical malpractice covers a variety of scenarios which may include, but are not limited to:
- Failure to diagnose or misdiagnose
- Nursing home/home health care abuse or neglect
- Faulty medical equipment
- Defective drugs and medical devices
- Nursing Negligence
- Overdose and/or adverse reactions to Medication or treatment
- Inadequate trauma or Emergency Room Care
- Issues with Anesthesia
In order to obtain and receive fair and full compensation in a medical malpractice or negligence claim, damages that may be sought may include recovery for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain & Suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of employment opportunity
