When Do I Have a Medical Malpractice Case After a Medical Mistake?
Whenever a doctor or care provider makes a mistake in treating you, a lawyer at Howell & Christmas LLC can help you pursue a medical malpractice case against:
- General practitioners
- Hospitals and health clinics
These and other medical care providers have an obligation to all patients. When they have made a mistake, we can help victims who are harmed make a claim for damages. When medical malpractice is fatal, surviving family members can also pursue a claim against doctors, hospitals, or other providers whose negligence killed their loved ones.
What Kinds of Compensation Can I Get For Medical Negligence?
Medical negligence can have a profound impact on your life. When you are harmed by medical negligence, you deserve to be fully compensated so you can try to recover and move on. Compensation should include:
- Payment of all medical expenditures you need to treat the problems caused by the medical error.
- Payment for loss of wages if medical negligence causes you to miss work or to be unable to earn as much in the future.
- Payment for emotional distress and pain you endure due to medical negligence.
Wrongful death damages paid to surviving family members provide different types of compensation like payment for lost companionship and a lifetime of lost earnings.
How Can a Charleston Medical Malpractice Lawyer Help?
If you suffered because of your care provider’s negligence, there are many ways a medical malpractice lawyer in Charleston can help. Since many juries aren’t familiar with the accepted standards of medical care, proving medical malpractice can be tricky without an expert witness. We have a network of medical experts who can review your records and determine if you have a case.
At Howell & Christmas, LLC, we can use our resources, knowledge, and experience to help you put together the strongest claim possible. We can provide assistance either by negotiating a settlement with the care provider or going to court to fight for the compensation you deserve. Call us today for a free consultation.
