Do I Have a Medical Malpractice Case?
Medical malpractice occurs when negligent actions by a doctor, hospital, or other healthcare professional result in an injury to a patient. For your injury to be considered medical malpractice, you must prove three things:
- Your healthcare provider violated the standard of care
- Your injury was a direct result of their negligence
- The injury caused significant damages
Pursuing a medical malpractice case is extremely expensive, especially when a large healthcare institution is associated with the case. For cases involving small damages, the cost of litigating is often higher than the compensation you can receive. Our team can help investigate your situation and determine if you have a viable medical malpractice case before getting started.
Types of Medical Malpractice
There are many forms of medical negligence, many of which can result in severe injury. Some common types of medical malpractice include:
- Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis
- Surgical errors
- Nursing home abuse
- Birth injury
- Prescription drug errors
- Anesthesia errors
Injury can also result from the use of a defective medical device.
Pursuing Fair Compensation
While financial compensation cannot erase your injury, it can provide you with some peace of mind during the recovery process. Medical malpractice cases are similar to personal injury suits and can result in compensation for the same types of damages, such as:
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Loss of earning capacity
In some cases, you can also receive damages for the pain and suffering the injury has caused both you and your family. At San Diego Injury Lawyer, our team will work tirelessly to help you collect the financial compensation you deserve. We can handle all aspects of your case so you can focus on healing and recovery.
