A Medical Malpractice Lawyer Should Help You

Being improperly diagnosed, treated, medicated or operated upon by a doctor can be one of the most traumatic experiences of a lifetime. Fortunately, there are opportunities to receive compensation for these wrongs, and even to introduce criminal charges against medical practitioners in certain extreme cases. Legally, medical malpractice (“mala praxis” in Latin) is defined as the “failure of a professional to follow the accepted standards of his or her profession.” There are three types of medical malpractice. Willful malpractice is the intentional administration of medicine or performance of operations that the doctor knows will cause harm to the patient. Negligent malpractice involves no dishonest or criminal intent, but rather “gross negligence” regarding the treatment of the patient. Ignorant malpractice is the administration of medicines that do harm to a patient, which a “scientific, medical man” would know, were improper. This type of claim is usually settled in a civil suit. Medical malpractice lawyers exist to deal with complaints of every type and level of severity, so regardless of your experience, there are laws and legal professionals who can help you determine the appropriate course of action.

Now is the Time to Contact a Medical Malpractice Lawyer

When considering whether or not to pursue a claim, there are a few factors that you should bear in mind. The first is the statute of limitations – how much time you have to file a claim after the malpractice occurs. The statute of limitations varies from state to state, and may be flexible depending on the circumstances of your case; so if you are unsure about your rights, don’t hesitate to contact our medical malpractice lawyer using the form below. Most medical malpractice lawyers work on a contingency basis, meaning that they won’t charge you for their services unless a settlement is reached. The typical contingency fee is 30% of the settlement, but this can vary by lawyer and type of case. Before taking your case, a medical malpractice lawyer will want to review your medical records, which you are free to access under Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), and speak to experts on the subject of your case. Your attorney will then discuss with you your chances of obtaining a settlement, and you’ll decide together whether and how to pursue the claim.
