Do You Have a Medical Malpractice Case?

Hospitas, doctors, and other medical staff are supposed to help patients, not injure them. Unfortuantely, when something a healthcare professional does or does not do causes a patient to be injured, he or she likely has committed medical malpractice and you may have a case.

Common Medical Malpractice Cases

Medical malpractice cases come in many forms. Some common types of medical malpractice cases include failure to diagnose medical conditions or misdiagnosis, surgical errors, anesthesia negligence, birth injuries and hospital negligence.

If you or a loved one was injured due to the fault of a medical professional, now is the time to act. Not only could you be entitled to compensation, but you could also hold the care providers responsible for their negligence. Speaking with an experienced Fort Wright medical malpractice attorney can help you determine if you have a case by reviewing your medical records and, if needed, he or she will hire a medical expert to get the additional evidence needed to evaluate your claim.

What qualifies as medical malpractice?

A doctor, nurse, or any other health care worker’s job is extremely stressful, and mistakes do happen. This makes medical malpractice hard to prove. You will need to prove that the liable party’s standard of care they provided was outside the bounds of reasonable care, and that poor care led to your injuries. Successful medical malpractice cases often rely on the testimony of other expert doctors to prove that malpractice occurred.

How much is the average medical malpractice settlement?

The average medical malpractice settlement is someone in the range of $300,000-$400,000, but it’s important to remember that every case is unique. The extent of your injuries and financial losses and whether your lawyer can build a compelling case will have a large effect on the amount of compensation that you might receive.

When should I get a lawyer for medical malpractice?

If you suspect that you or a loved one was the victim of medical malpractice, you should consult with an attorney as soon as possible. Even if the hospital is offering you a quick settlement, you should have your own attorney review it to make sure you are not giving away any rights. An attorney could also determine whether you have a case for more compensation.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

Top Questions to Ask a Lawyer

  • What is the usual process to resolve my case? How long will it take to resolve this?
  • What are likely outcomes of a case like mine? What should I expect?

An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic “road map” on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you’ve laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.

How much does it cost to hire an attorney?

In general, how much an attorney costs will often depend on these four factors: billing method and pricing structure, type of legal work performed, law firm prestige, and attorney experience. Depending on the legal issue you are facing, an attorney may bill you by the hour, settle on a flat fee, or enter into a contingency fee agreement. The type of legal work you need help with will also play a role in cost incurred.
