Medical Malpractice Lawyer for Cases of Doctor Error
If you believe a doctor’s error is the cause of your distress, you must first prove that a doctor patient relationship existed. There is no way to recover any kind of compensation if a doctor happens to give you advice at a social gathering. He or she must actually be your doctor. It goes without saying that if you are just unhappy with your treatment, it does not mean you are entitled to receive any kind of compensation. The doctor’s error must be the cause of your ailment that you are currently suffering, and the damages you are looking to recover must be clearly measurable. For instance, the loss of enjoyment of life, physical and mental pain and suffering, and loss of wages or future earning capacity can be measured in dollars and cents.
There are special damages that can be awarded for additional medical bills that were incurred due to the doctor’s error when it was known that he or she was acting in harmful manner when treating the condition of the patient. A good example of this would be if a sponge was left inside the body of a patient during the conclusion of a surgery, resulting in that person having to return for a second procedure. The heirs of a deceased patient can also recover monetary compensation for the doctor’s error, which caused the death of their loved one.
