Seeking Compensation

Medical malpractice cases are often very complex and require in-depth analysis of medical records, the assistance of medical experts, financial experts, and testimony from expert witnesses.

Types of medical malpractice cases

There are several types of medical malpractice cases. Some of the most common examples include:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis: When a healthcare provider fails to diagnose a condition or disease in a timely manner, patients may suffer severe harm or injury.
  • Surgical errors: A healthcare provider may commit an error during surgery, such as leaving a surgical tool inside a patient's body or operating on the wrong body part.
  • Medication errors: Healthcare providers may prescribe the wrong medication or the wrong dosage of a medication, leading to serious complications.
  • Birth injuries: Medical malpractice can occur during childbirth, causing injuries to the mother or infant.

How is a medical malpractice case proven?

To bring a medical malpractice case against a medical professional, the following elements must exist:

  • Duty: The healthcare provider had a duty of care to a patient.
  • Breach of duty: The healthcare provider breached that duty by failing to provide the accepted standard of care.
  • Causation: The healthcare provider's breach of duty caused the patient's injury or harm.
  • Damages: The patient suffered damages because of their injury or harm.

Evaluating your case

A medical malpractice attorney can review your case and determine whether you have a strong claim for medical malpractice.

Investigating your case

An attorney can gather evidence, review medical records, interview witnesses, and obtain expert opinions to build a strong case on your behalf.
