Seeking Compensation After A Medical Mistake
While the vast majority of doctors, nurses and other medical practitioners do everything they can to ensure their patients’ best interests, medical providers are still people. That means that medical mistakes can and do happen. Mistakes can include incorrect diagnoses, errors during surgery or medication errors, but they aren’t limited to these types of scenarios. If you believe you have been injured by a medical mistake, you may have a legal case for seeking compensation from the provider or facility at fault.
Making A Case For Compensation After A Medical Mistake
Medical malpractice cases are a type of personal injury case. That means that the burden of proof is on the person who was injured. In these cases, you don’t have to prove any type of intent on the medical provider’s part. Instead, the plaintiff must prove that the mistake occurred and that it resulted in some sort of injury or loss.
Unfortunately, making that type of legal case can be more difficult than it sounds. What seems blatantly obvious to you or to loved ones isn’t always the type of evidence that works well in the legal system. Knowing how to present your case is critical to achieving a successful settlement or outcome in court.
The legal team at the Law Office of Christopher L. Giddings, P.C. has experience with these types of cases. We know how to investigate, seeking medical documentation and testimony to build an argument for compensation. We also know who to list as a defendant in any medical mistake lawsuit: It’s not typically just the individual provider who made the error. You may need to include facilities and insurance companies in your suit for the best potential outcome.
