If you go to your doctor or a medical specialist, it’s because you have a problem that needs medical attention. You may be in pain from a back or neck injury, maybe you are having heart problems, or you are in gastrointestinal distress, or maybe you are unhappy with some part of your appearance and looking for a surgical or medical procedure to help.

If you go to a medical professional for help, and instead you are injured and made worse by your doctor or surgeon because they failed to provide you with an appropriate standard of care, or because the facility where you were treated caused you harm, this could be a medical malpractice issue and you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries through a personal injury claim.

Medical malpractice happens most frequently when a doctor, nurse or hospital fails to provide the appropriate standard of care. This can include misdiagnosis, medication errors, surgical errors and other mistakes that can cause a patient harm.

If you feel you’ve been injured by your doctor or due to negligence at a hospital or medical facility, it’s important to contact the right personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Personal injury claims and medical malpractice are complex areas of the law and should be handled by an experienced personal injury law firm.

Fair compensation in a medical malpractice case can be collected for damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement, permanent disability, emotional distress and more. In some cases, punitive damages can be awarded if the courts feel there is a need for punishment when a healthcare provider demonstrated gross negligence in the care that they provided which resulted in your injuries.
