A victim of medical malpractice is entitled to compensation, including:

Payment of past and future medical bills
Compensation for lost wages
Compensation for pain and suffering

Even patients of competent healthcare providers can become victims of medical malpractice. Despite best efforts to provide their patients with proper care and treatment, doctors, hospital staff, nursing home staff, and other healthcare providers sometimes make mistakes that cause patients to suffer the results of medical malpractice.

But proving medical malpractice is not easy. For example, just because a doctor’s prescribed treatment did not achieve the desired result does not mean that the doctor was negligent. Key questions to consider are:

What is the standard of medical care?
Was the standard of care followed?
Was injury caused by not following the standard of care?

What to do if you think you may be a victim of medical malpractice:

It is important to seek competent legal advice as soon as possible. It is essential to preserve evidence and to identify witnesses who may be used to testify in your case. And the law limits the time you have to file a court case so you should not delay.
