Common Types of Compensation for Medical Malpractice

While every medical malpractice claim is unique and different, there are types of compensation that are commonly sought after in medical malpractice cases. It does not matter what specifically caused a victim to be injured in order to seek compensation, as long as the plaintiff, usually their lawyer, can prove that the injury is the result of the negligent behavior of the victim’s physician. Common forms of financial compensation for medical malpractice victims and/or their families include but are not limited to:

– Emergency services
– Medical bills
– Hospital bills
– Loss of income
– Loss of childcare and/or household management
– Loss of abilities
– Loss of quality of life
– Pain and suffering
– Loss of benefits
– Funeral and burial expenses
– Loss of consortium
– Loss of parental guidance
– Loss of sibling companionship

If any of the above have caused you and your family financial hardship, or if you are having other difficulties related to an injury that are not mentioned here, a medical malpractice law firm Virginia medical malpractice victims and their families can rely on, may be able to help you get the compensation you and your family are entitled to.

Common Reasons People Become Injured or Ill Because of Medical Malpractice

As a very basic explanation of medical malpractice, when a doctor or other healthcare provider and their office, or a hospital or other kind of medical facility, does not meet what is considered to be the industry’s acceptable standard of medical care; and this negligence causes a patient to suffer from an injury or illness. If this proves to be true, the medical malpractice victim, and often their family, may be entitled to compensation. Common reasons people become injured or ill because of medical malpractice include but are not limited to:

Misdiagnoses A misdiagnosis or a failure to diagnose something that can be fixed

Surgery and procedure errors When a medical practitioner and his/her staff perform a
surgery or procedure incorrectly

Medication error Prescribing or administering the wrong medications; not prescribing or
administering the correct medications in their correct doses

Nursing home neglect and abuse Patients who cannot take care of their basic daily
needs should be attended to and monitored on a regular and frequent basis; this includes
making sure patients have social interactions and outside stimulation. These patients
should never be subjected to physical, sexual, verbal, or emotional abuse by their
caregivers or fellow residents.

The above are just some of the basics about medical malpractice and in no way should any of the information here be taken as legal advice.To get answers to the legal questions you are looking for, contact a law firm that has a track record of successfully defending medical malpractice victims and their families.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
