Medical Malpractice Lawyer
When you’ve been hurt by a doctor’s actions, you may be entitled to compensation. Talk to a lawyer about your medical bills and other losses when your doctor is careless.
Doctors can be lifesavers, protecting your health and well-being when or even before something goes wrong. But that doesn’t mean doctors never make mistakes. Worse, your doctor may have made a careless mistake they shouldn’t have, damaging your health in severe ways.
At Monge & Associates, we understand how a medical mistake can damage your health and well-being for years after the incident. Talk to a medical malpractice lawyer to get the help you need when a doctor makes a mistake.
What Counts as Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is more than a mistake on your doctor’s part. Medical malpractice is negligence on your doctor’s part that leaves you injured.
For example, your doctor may have done many tests to determine what was wrong before diagnosing you. If they were incorrect and your health suffered, you may be unable to sue if they did everything in their power to protect your health.
But a doctor who was careless with your health may be responsible for the damage. For example, if your doctor did few or no tests before a diagnosis, they may not have approached your health with care and could be held responsible.
Liability for Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice can be complex because, in many cases, the doctor isn’t financially liable for their actions. They may have committed the action and may face penalties for it, but often, your claim won’t be filed against the individual.
Your claim may instead be filed against the hospital or doctor group they’re a part of. These groups are responsible for the actions of their members. Talk to your malpractice lawyer if you’re unsure who’s liable for your injuries.
Compensation for Medical Negligence Victims
You know you’re due compensation. But what is your claim worth? Your lawyer can help you determine the value of all your damages.
Economic damages cover the financial costs of your injuries. For example, you may have high medical bills because of the suffering you experienced. Your recovery can be expensive, and you may be unable to work during this time. These financial losses should be included in your lawsuit.
Your non-economic damages include the intangible suffering you experienced because of the medical negligence your doctor committed. These damages can be more difficult to calculate because they don’t have a set dollar amount. You instead need to speak with your attorney about the value of your claim and the impact of your injuries or illness on your life.
