Understanding Medical Malpractice

You might be wondering if the harm you’ve faced falls under the category of medical malpractice.

Here are some questions to consider:

  • Did you have an established relationship with the doctor that cared for you? In other words, had you provided consent, either directly or indirectly, to receive treatment?
  • Do you believe that the doctor’s care deviated substantially from the care he or she should’ve provided?
  • Did the doctor’s error cause your injury? Is there any other explanation for how you might have been injured?
  • As a result of your injury, did you incur significant damages such as medical bills or missed time off work?

If you answered “yes” to all the questions above, you might have grounds for a medical malpractice claim.

How a Personal Injury Lawyer can Help

Medical malpractice lawsuits require a lot of time and effort to bring forward. Therefore, we do not recommend you go it alone. Doctors and hospitals have a vested interest to discredit and dismiss your claim and will come to the table with aggressive representation. You should have that kind of representation, too.

Here are the advantages of working with Ladenburg Law on your claim:

  • Contingency-fee basis: You only pay us if we win your case. There’s no upfront cost or retainer to worry about, ever.
  • Thorough investigation: We know how to dig into medical records, history, past litigation, and more to help build your case. Our team also has access to experts throughout the medical field who can testify on your behalf.
  • Legal process: Unfortunately, filing a medical malpractice claim is as straightforward or easy as you might imagine. Rely on us to fill out the paperwork correctly and on time. We’ll manage the claims process so you can focus on your healing.
  • Ready for court: If we’re unable to reach a fair settlement, we’ll be prepared to take your case to trial.

Our aim is to treat every client that walks through our doors like family. You can count on us to provide timely updates about your case and answer all your questions in language you can understand.

Compensable Damages in a Malpractice Claim

Medical malpractice settlements can vary wildly because every case and set of circumstances is different. However, we can tell you that in the State of Washington medical malpractice victims are entitled to economic and non-economic damages (RCW 4.56.250).

Economic damages include items like hospital bills and lost income – expenses you can easily tally and assign dollars to. Non-economic damages are the subjective losses such as pain, suffering, and lifestyle changes.

Our team can help uncover your total damages and provide you with feedback about the potential value of your claim.

You Only Pay Us If We Win you Compensation
