Though it may be hard to believe, mistakes in the medical field, outside of heart disease and cancer, cause more than 250,000 deaths each year. Unfortunately, these disasters leave people with long-term and sometimes even lifelong damage. If you feel that you are a victim to medical malpractice, we’re just a call away. We will expertly assess your case and try to give you the help that you deserve. The physical, financial, and emotional harm that comes from medical malpractice may seem overwhelming. But we are here to help. From anesthesia, medication, and surgery errors to a wrong, or deferred, diagnosis, compensation may be on the table. Here are some signs that you may be entitled to compensation from Medical Malpractice:
- Negligence?: Did you think that the doctor was not careful with their assessment, or not sensibly adept in their treatment? Proof must be provided that the doctor who hurt you was incompetent in their course of action.
- Injury from Negligence?: The negligence on behalf of the doctor must be proven that you didn’t have a pre-existing condition which caused harm. A patient has to prove that it’s “more likely than not” that the ignorance of the doctor directly caused harm.
- Were There Specific Damages?: For example, if a doctor prescribed medication that was not related to your injury, or issue, and had no side-effects or pains associated with it, then it would be a waste of time to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. Damages include: mental anguish, physical pain, added medical bills or work that was lost or a loss in earnings due to the damages.
“Yes” to any of these may mean that you are entitled to Medical Malpractice compensation. Call Martin Walker PC at (903) 526-1600.
