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.

I am very satisfied with the services provided by Cohen and Cohen. They were able to settle my case within less than a year and settled a fair amount in which I was expecting. They communicated very well throughout the process as well as made sure all boxes were checked off to ensure i received the best care and communication. I will recommend the services to anyone in these situations. Riley and Brittney were certainly very helpful during the process.

Lucas Baudry was my rep for this accident claim, and even though I had LOADS of questions and was a bit impatient, he was always responsive and quick to reply. We’re wrapping up now, and I really feel like he tried to have the best results in the end, and didn’t drag it out more than need be.
