Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Malpractice

Patients who suffer injuries or complications after receiving medical treatment often have questions about their legal rights and options. Some of the most common questions we receive include:

Not every adverse outcome of medical treatment occurs due to malpractice. Many procedures and treatments have known risks and complications. However, when a healthcare provider renders treatment that falls below the accepted standard of care, and the patient suffers harm because of that treatment, the patient may have a medical malpractice claim. Although the standard of care differs from patient to patient, the medical profession generally defines the standard of care as the treatment decisions and actions that other healthcare professionals of similar training and experience would undertake in identical circumstances. Under this standard, the law will not hold a healthcare provider liable for treatment that other professionals would have provided in the same circumstances. Instead, a provider may have liability for treatment decisions and actions that other professionals would not undertake.

State law imposes a deadline for filing medical malpractice lawsuits. The time limit varies from state to state. Talk to a medical malpractice attorney from Bullock Ward Mason, LLC about your case to learn how long you may have to file your claim. If you file your medical malpractice lawsuit after the statutory deadline, you may lose your right to recover compensation in civil court.

A medical malpractice claim can compensate you or your family for ongoing and future expenses and personal suffering caused by injuries or complications due to negligent health care. Compensation in a medical malpractice claim can include the following:

  • Costs of medical treatment and rehabilitation for the injuries or complications caused by the medical malpractice, including additional hospitalizations, surgeries, medications, and physical therapy
  • Costs of long-term care for permanent physical or cognitive disabilities caused by negligent medical treatment, including home health services, caregiver assistance, medical/mobility equipment purchases, and disability accommodations
  • Lost wages/income you incur if you need to take additional time off work to recover from injuries or complications caused by medical malpractice
  • Loss of earning capacity due to disabilities that prevent you from returning to your job or other work
  • Physical pain and emotional distress caused by your injuries or complications and subsequent medical treatment
  • Loss of enjoyment or quality of life caused by permanent scarring or disfigurement

Some people incorrectly assume that medical malpractice claims only involve doctors. Any healthcare professional may have liability in a medical malpractice claim, including nurses, physician’s assistants, pharmacists, radiology/lab technicians, midwives, physical therapists, and chiropractors.

Although we cannot predict precisely how long it may take to resolve your medical malpractice claim, various factors and circumstances will influence the duration and timeline of your case. These factors include the nature and severity of the injuries or medical complications you’ve experienced, the duration of your recovery, the amount of your financial losses, whether you suffer physical or cognitive impairments from your injuries or complications, the number of liable parties, the extent of insurance coverage, and whether you need to take your case to court and trial to recover compensation. At Bullock Ward Mason, LLC, our attorneys will frequently update you on the progress of your case so you know what actions we’ve taken in your case and what next steps you can expect.

Hiring a medical malpractice lawyer to handle your claim gives you a better chance at recovering compensation for your losses. Medical malpractice cases usually involve complex evidence and legal issues. For example, your case will likely require expert testimony to establish the applicable standard of care in your treatment and explain how your healthcare provider failed to comply with that standard. An experienced medical malpractice attorney will have the resources to hire a trusted expert to testify on your behalf. A lawyer can also investigate your claim and recover valuable evidence to support your case. Furthermore, an attorney can handle communications and settlement negotiations with at-fault parties, healthcare facility representatives, and insurance adjusters, freeing you to focus on recovering from the injuries and complications you’ve suffered due to negligent healthcare.
