Healthcare guidelines establish minimum standards of care for medical professionals and when a medical provider fails to meet those standards, rendering negligent or careless services to patients which results in injury or death, the patients or their survivors may have a right to receive fair compensation for their damages. Nationwide, medical malpractice causes nearly 50,000 deaths annually and over 1.3 million people suffer adverse reactions as a result of errors in prescription medication.
In order to succeed on a medical malpractice claim, a plaintiff must show that the health care provider was in breached their duty to the patient and that this breach caused the person to sustain injuries that otherwise could have been avoided. Medical malpractice may result in physical injuries including disfigurement, loss of limbs, disability or other bodily injuries. In addition, a patient of a negligent health care provider may suffer emotional distress, embarrassment and/or loss of consortium. Damages available in medical malpractice cases can include medical expenses, permanent injuries, lost income, pain and suffering, and other associated costs.
