Healthcare professionals are held to a professional standard of care. This means that the medical provider must provide services that meet a reasonable level of care that another professional with a similar background would provide in a similar situation.

The consequences of negligence can be devastating for both the victim and their family members. If you suffered injuries or losses due to a medical error, you may be entitled to compensation for:-

  • Medical bills and any other costs associated to correcting the problems caused by the negligence.
  • Loss of wages and loss of potential future earning capacity.
  • Pain and suffering.

Certain mistakes can be fatal. When errors result in the death of the patient, the surviving family members may be entitled to file a wrongful death claim. It is essential to know that there is a time limit to file a case for malpractice and it varies state to state. In some states, the time limit starts when the malpractice occurred, but in some states, it starts when a patient discovered the injury that may take few months to years. Moreover, you have sufficient proof to prove that there is a doctor and patient relationship has been established means the doctor agreed to see you and started a treatment.
