bloomington medical malpractice lawyers

The medical malpractice attorney’s at Zayed Law Offices have helped many clients recover the compensation they deserve. If you’ve suffered as a result of a preventable medical mistake or accident, they can help you the same way. The legal system is complex when it comes to medical malpractice cases. Expert testimony and extensive medical knowledge are often required to establish a valid case. They’re also able to provide you with all the work upfront and only collect a fee if you win. The cost of initiating a lawsuit alone is often very costly. You’ll get the best representation possible and, you’ll be able to rest assured knowing that everything’s being taken care of for you.

Exactly what is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when an accident, injury, or mistake causes an individual to suffer. The incident doesn’t necessarily have to be caused by a particular type of provider or even an individual. For example, a hospital technician can make a mistake in sanitation of medical supplies that result in an injury. A nurse may inject too much medication, or a pharmacist may give the wrong medication to be administered. While there’s a seemingly endless number of scenarios, some of the most common types include the following:

  • Birth injuries
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Misdiagnosis of illnesses or injuries
  • Stroke and heart attack
  • Lab errors

How do I determine if I have a valid case

As previously mentioned, the key determining factor is if negligence was a part of the equation. Disliking the outcome of a treatment or an unpreventable outcome would also have to carefully be reviewed to determine if negligence was involved. A litmus test that’s typically applied is whether the entity or provider exercised a reasonable duty of care. If a provider would act the same or similarly in the same scenario, chances are that negligence wasn’t at fault.

Another part of the equation is that you must have sustained significant damages as a result of the providers negligence. This can be excessive medical bills, lost wages, loss of future wages, and so on. Punitive damages are also often awarded with many malpractice cases. The loss of future opportunity or pain and suffering can be compensated as well. A skilled attorney such as those at Zayed Law Offices can explain the anticipated outcome and what they hope to accomplish for you, their client.

What should I do if I suspect medical malpractice?

If you suspect that your doctor has incorrectly treated or misdiagnosed you, contact an attorney at once. While most doctors exercise prudence and are very aware of the risks they’re undertaking, things don’t always go as planned. Failure to accurately listen to the patient and even simply ordering the wrong medication or lab tests can go horribly wrong. Doctors and other medical care providers are required to go through extensive education and training. Unfortunately, this doesn’t exempt them from always acting in the best interest of the patient. Having the entire situation evaluated by an attorney who can ask the right questions can help uncover whether medical malpractice likely occurred. It’s inadvisable to express any of these concerns directly with the provider. This can be more problematic in the long run and can even give the provider time to thwart any type of investigation. It’s also important that you bring the claim forward as quickly as possible. The statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases is just two years.

How do I have my case evaluated and what documentation will I need?

There are several ways to receive your free case evaluation. You can fill out the online form with your information, chat with us online, or give us a call. While medical records are helpful, they’re not always necessary upfront. An attorney can typically assess the situation on an interview basis alone. The attorney will explain in detail how the process works if you have a valid claim and wish to proceed. It’s imperative that all directions are followed quickly and closely to speed up the process.
