A medical professional has an important job and plenty of responsibility, so when one of them hurts a patient instead of helping them, they must be held accountable. If you or a loved one have suffered harm due to the actions of a doctor, nurse, or any other medical professional, you may have a medical malpractice suit on your hands.
A Daytona Beach medical malpractice lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can help. Our law office can evaluate your case at no cost to you, and then we will help you pursue damages and fight for the compensation that you and your family deserve.
Pursuing a Medical Malpractice Case in Volusia County, Florida
Unfortunately, medical malpractice is quite common. In fact, a study from Johns Hopkins Medicine recently showed that it is now one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Medical malpractice can cause harm or even the death of patients. It can also lead to disabilities and permanent health issues.
There is a standard of care in medicine, and medical professionals who do not meet that standard can harm patients. Malpractice can be caused by negligence, inadequate training, understaffing, and a variety of other factors.
No matter what the cause is, you deserve compensation if you or your family member have been harmed by people who were supposed to be caring for you.
Types of Medical Malpractice
When people think of medical malpractice, they might picture surgical errors and dramatic mistakes that cause death or permanent disabilities. But there are many forms of medical malpractice that vary in severity, so do not assume that your case is “no big deal” and that you do not deserve compensation.
Medical malpractice cases can be filed due to:
- Surgical mistakes
- Anesthesia errors
- A failure to diagnose
- Medication errors
- Injuries from restraints
Your care team should be avoiding any of these situations that can result in grievous harm to a patient and their families. If they did not do their best to uphold a standard of care, you should pursue damages, and we can help.
Recovering Damages in Daytona Beach
Suffering an injury due to medical malpractice can affect your finances, your work situation, and even how you spend your leisure time. If you feel that the negligence of a medical professional has caused you harm, you should pursue compensation with us. Your compensation can cover:
If you have been harmed by medical malpractice, you will likely need additional treatment. Your medical bills could begin piling up, and your compensation should cover that and help relieve you of this financial burden.
An injury suffered due to medical malpractice can also keep you out of work for an extended period. Your compensation can help cover the wages that you missed out on when you were unable to work.
Loss of Future Earning Potential
Your injuries could leave you with lasting health issues that affect your ability to work. If you can no longer work as many hours, work in the same field, or work at all, your loss of future earning potential also needs to be considered when compensation is calculated.
Loss of Enjoyment
An injury that affects your ability to work could also make it harder to enjoy your leisure time. If medical malpractice has caused injuries that prevent you from taking part in a hobby or sport you once enjoyed, you deserve compensation.
Disfigurement and Disability
Disfigurement or disability can leave you with lasting issues that affect your physical and mental health. We will help you pursue damages that help to make things right.
Pain and Suffering
You should also be compensated for any other pain and suffering experienced by you and your family members during this trying time.
