Medical Malpractice Negligence Settlements - What You Need to Know

When it comes to seeking medical care, the simple truth is this: most of us seek medical care to feel better, not worse. While that may seem obvious, unfortunately, for many people, that doesn’t always end up being the case. You may have gone to a medical provider you trusted with the hope of healing and feeling better, only to find yourself injured and feeling worse. If this is the case, you may be entitled to recovery by filing a medical malpractice claim. 

At Morgan and Morgan, we understand medical malpractice law, and we are proud of our reputation for helping clients fight for and receive the settlements they deserve. While every case is different, there are a few helpful things to understand about the medical malpractice settlement process.

First, to succeed in any medical malpractice claim, you must prove two things: 

  • That the medical provider was negligent;
  • That the medical provider’s negligence caused the injuries and losses that you suffered

The truth is that in medical care, as with any profession, sometimes accidents happen and no one is at fault. Often, however, injuries occur because of a medical provider’s negligence. 

What is negligence? You seek medical treatment rightfully expecting that the provider will take necessary precautions and follow appropriate procedures. When that doesn’t happen, it is considered negligence, and it may cause injury. If you are injured, and you can prove that your injury is a result of your medical provider’s negligence, you are entitled to recover compensation for your losses. 

In addition to proving negligence and injury, your attorney will need to help you negotiate the value of your claim. Your claim’s value should include compensation for all of your losses. While available damages can vary from state to state, they often include: 

  • Medical expenses;
  • Lost wages;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • And more

Depending upon the circumstances of your case, you may also be able to seek damages for loss of companionship or even wrongful death. In some extreme cases, punitive damages may also be available. Your attorney will be able to help you determine what damages you might be entitled to and work toward negotiating the best settlement on your behalf with the responsible parties.
