Below are some frequently asked questions about medical malpractice.
If I am unhappy with the results of my surgery, can that be considered medical malpractice?
Unfortunately, there are no guarantees from a legal perspective when it comes to medical procedures. If the results of your surgery were unsuccessful or unexpected, it does not necessarily indicate an instance of negligence. Medical malpractice claims can only be filed against a medical professional who is guilty of negligence, such as not meeting the standards of care or failing to follow the correct procedure. To prove a medical malpractice case is valid, there will need to be clear and convincing evidence that the doctor, dentist, nurse, staff, or hospital neglected to follow the standard guidelines that apply to the procedure.
If I signed a consent form, am I still eligible to make a medical malpractice claim?
Yes, you may still be able to file a claim to recover financial compensation. Informed consent means that the doctor explained all of the possible benefits, risks, and alternative options involved with the medical procedure, and patients are required to provide written consent. However, providing your doctor with written consent only gives them the right to proceed, and it does not protect them against acts of negligence. It is still possible that they deviated from the standard of care, and if this action led to the worsening of your condition, you may have to right to file a medical malpractice claim against them.
How long will the court take to award damages?
Medical malpractice lawsuits are serious, and they typically involve several parties. Consequently, these types of claims can take several months, if not longer, to resolve. If you are suffering because a medical professional caused you injury due to their careless, reckless, or negligent actions, then you should strongly consider speaking with an attorney to protect your rights and help you the fair compensation that you are owed.
If I am awarded damages, does the doctor have enough money to pay?
The amount of money you are awarded will depend on the specific details surrounding your claim, and part of the legal proceedings will be dedicated to establishing an amount that is owed to you. Factors that contribute to larger amounts include permanent injuries that require future medical treatments, life expectancy, partial fault on the plaintiff, and other lawsuits brought forth against the defendants. In the end, it is usually insurance companies that are required to pay for medical malpractice damages, and the doctor will not be personally paying for the damages out of their own pocket.
If you or someone you love has been a victim of medical malpractice, we may be of assistance. You owe it to yourself and your family to seek financial compensation when the negligent actions of a medical professional caused you harm.
