Medical Malpractice Lawyers in VA

Medical Malpractice Lawyers in VAIf you think you have been the victim of medical malpractice due to a Virginia doctor, healthcare provider, or hospital’s negligence, malpractice lawyers in VA may be able to help you get monetary compensation. In the tragic event, a family member has died because of this, you and surviving family members may have grounds to hold the negligent party or parties accountable for their wrongdoings.

If you are in pain, taking care of someone in pain, or grieving over the loss of a loved one, facing the financial hardships that medical malpractice injuries typically create can be overwhelming. You should be able to focus on healing and not have to navigate this difficult time alone. While money cannot take away a person’s pain, lost time, or grief, it can be a comfort to know that you will not have to pay for debts you cannot afford- and that you will have money for future expenses and financial hardships that may come about as a result of your or your loved one’s medical malpractice accident.

Medical malpractice lawyers who are licensed to help people throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia may be able to help you hold the VA doctor or hospital that caused you or your loved one’s injuries, accountable for the damage they have done. 

Common Forms of Medical Malpractice

There is an unfortunately large number of the different kinds of medical malpractice that can cause people to suffer. Some of the more common forms of medical malpractice claims that lawyers in VA may be able to help you with include but are not limited to:

  • Anaesthesia errors
  • Birth injuries
  • Chiropractic malpractice
  • Dental malpractice
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Failure to diagnosis
  • Hospital errors
  • Laboratory errors
  • Lack of patient monitoring
  • Medication errors
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Faulty medical devices and implants
  • Procedure errors
  • Surgery errors
  • Wrongful death

Medical malpractice laws differ from state to state. While many states have medical malpractice and personal injury laws that are similar to other states, only a lawyer that is licensed to practice in the state where an injury occurred is allowed to represent medical malpractice victims in court.

If you or someone close to you has suffered because of medical malpractice in Virginia, VA lawyers that are experienced with defending the rights of medical malpractice victims and their families, may be able to help you.

Virginia Law

The Code of Virginia defines medical malpractice law as:

Any tort action or breach of contract action for personal injuries or wrongful death, based on health care or professional services rendered, or which should have been rendered, by a healthcare provider, to a patient.

Virginia medical malpractice victims typically have two years from the time of their injury, or the time when they became aware of their injury, in which to make a claim before the statute of limitations runs out. The sooner you discuss your situation with a reliable lawyer, the sooner they may be able to ensure that your claim is filed in a timely manner and the sooner they may be able to start protecting your rights.

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.
