How To Know If You Have A Medical Malpractice Case?

Whether or not you have a medical malpractice case depends on a series of crucial factors, each one key in laying the groundwork for your claim. In Virginia, the legal framework for medical malpractice is outlined in various statutes, providing a basis for understanding the factors that constitute negligence in the medical field.

As your reliable legal team, we’ll examine all the elements of your case to determine its solidity and provide candid advice specifically suited to your situation.

Elements to Prove Medical Negligence

To establish a medical malpractice claim in Virginia, several elements must be proven:

  • Duty of care: There must be a recognized standard of care that the healthcare provider was expected to follow.
  • Breach of duty: The healthcare provider failed to adhere to this standard of care.
  • Causation: This breach directly caused injury or harm to the patient.
  • Damages: The patient suffered quantifiable harm as a result of the breach. For example, you may have a valid claim if a negligent medical procedure caused you catastrophic injuries or traumatic brain injury. Still, it’s important to mention that not all injuries are caused by medical negligence.

Common Types of Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle

Some of the most common types of cases we handle include:

  • Surgical errors, such as operating on the wrong site or leaving instruments inside the patient.
  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, leading to a lack of treatment or incorrect treatment.
  • Birth injuries, which can result in lifelong disabilities for the newborn.
  • Medication errors, including prescribing the wrong medication or dosage.
  • Anesthesia errors, which can lead to severe injury or death.

Paralysis or amputation represents some of the most severe outcomes of medical malpractice, and accounts for the higher settlements nationwide. Over our years of experience, we have seen how in the most tragic scenarios, negligence can lead to wrongful death, a devastating outcome for the victim’s family. And it’s our commitment to secure as much compensation as possible to secure a better future for you and your loved ones.

What Can You Recover in a Medical Malpractice Case?

According to Virginia laws, there are guidelines designed to ensure that victims are fairly compensated while also maintaining a balance within the healthcare system. However, we have seen how insurance companies may try to offer lower settlements that won’t cover the full extent of your damages and suffering. As your lawyers, we’ll make sure to assess all the damages you are entitled to, including:

  • Medical expenses: Costs for past and future medical treatment related to malpractice.
  • Lost wages: Compensation for income lost due to the inability to work, including future lost earning capacity.
  • Pain and suffering: Non-economic damages for the physical pain and emotional distress experienced.
  • Punitive damages: In rare cases, if the malpractice was particularly egregious, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar conduct.
  • Loss of consortium: Compensation for the impact on the relationship between the victim and their spouse or family members.
  • Wrongful death: In cases where malpractice leads to death, surviving family members can seek damages for loss of support, companionship, and funeral expenses.
