How do I Prove Medical Malpractice?

Proving medical malpractice can be a very difficult task. A poor medical outcome or unsatisfactory result during a hospitalization or medical procedure does not necessarily mean that there was negligence by the doctor or hospital. Many medical procedures have inherent risks, and many illnesses have poor outcomes even with the best medical attention. We will perform a detailed analysis of your treatment to determine whether you or someone you know has been the victim of malpractice or negligent care.

How Much is Compensation in a Medical Malpractice Case?

The amount of compensation in a medical malpractice case varies and is unique to each case. Claims for damages include money for pain and suffering, mental anguish, scars and disfigurements, and emotional harm.

In many cases, the injured patient or family may also have financial losses that can be demanded in the lawsuit. These damages include lost income, medical expenses, and other financial harm suffered by the victim of poor medical care.
