Are You a Victim of Nurse Malpractice?

If you have suffered injuries due to a nurse’s failure to competently perform his or her duties as required by law, you should consider filing a nurse malpractice lawsuit. A skilled Weaverville nurse malpractice attorney can help you recover damages for your injuries, as well as help determine whether the nurse is liable for malpractice.

Different Types of Nurse Malpractice

Did you know that there are several ways a nurse can be liable for nurse malpractice? A common situation that warrants a nurse malpractice lawsuit is when the nurse improperly administers medication to his or her patient. This usually occurs when the nurse doesn’t properly follow the doctor’s orders. Other common nurse malpractice situations include injuring the patient, failing to supervise the patient, and failing to alert a doctor about essential medical concerns.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

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.

Types of legal fees:

Bill by the hour: Many attorneys bill by the hour. How much an attorney bills you per hour will vary based on a number of factors. For instance, an attorney’s hourly fee may fluctuate based on whether that hour is spent representing you in court or doing research on your case. Attorneys in one practice area may bill you more than attorneys in a different practice area.

Contingent fee: Some lawyers will accept payment via contingent fee. In this arrangement, the lawyer receives a percentage of the total monetary recovery if you win your lawsuit. In sum, the lawyer only gets paid if you win. Contingent fee agreements are limited to specific practice areas in civil law.

Flat fee: For “routine” legal work where the attorney generally knows the amount of time and resources necessary to complete the task, he/she may be willing to bill you a flat fee for services performed.

Common legal terms explained
