    How Does Medical negligence Occur?

    Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider, such as a doctor, nurse, or hospital, deviates from the accepted standards of medical care, resulting in harm or injury to the patient. Common examples of medical malpractice include:

    • Misdiagnosis
    • Surgical errors
    • Medication mistakes
    • Birth injuries
    • Anesthesia errors
    • Failure to diagnose a condition
    • Inadequate treatment

    These instances can cause a range of disabilities and injuries, including permanent disabilities, organ damage, infections, paralysis, wrongful death, and prolonged pain and suffering.


    How Can a Medical malpractice attorney Prove My Case?

    Proving medical malpractice requires specific evidence to establish negligence on the part of the healthcare provider.

    For your case to be successful, an attorney must prove the following elements:

    Duty of care

    It must be shown that a doctor-patient relationship existed, and the healthcare provider had a duty to provide competent and appropriate care.

    Breach of duty

    It must be proven that the healthcare provider breached their duty of care by failing to meet the standard expected in their field. This is often established by comparing the provider's actions to what a reasonable and competent healthcare professional would have done in similar circumstances.


    It must be demonstrated that the healthcare provider's breach of duty directly caused the patient's injuries or harm. This requires establishing a clear cause-and-effect relationship between the provider's actions and the resulting damages.


    The patient must have suffered actual harm or damages as a result of the healthcare provider's negligence. This can include physical pain, emotional distress, medical expenses, lost wages, and other financial losses.

    A medical malpractice lawyer at MVP Accident Attorneys can guide you through the legal process and help you gather the necessary evidence to support your claim. They will review your medical records, consult with medical experts, and conduct a thorough investigation to build a strong case on your behalf. They will also assess the extent of your damages to ensure you seek fair compensation for your injuries and losses.

    By working with a medical malpractice lawyer, you can benefit from their knowledge and experience in handling complex medical malpractice cases. They understand the intricacies of medical laws and regulations and can navigate the legal system effectively. They will advocate for your rights, negotiate with insurance companies and opposing counsel, and, if necessary, represent you in court.


    What are Recoverable Damages in Malpractice Claims?

    Victims of medical malpractice may be entitled to recover various damages, which can vary depending on the specific circumstances of the case.

    Damages may include:

    Medical expenses

    Compensation for the costs of medical treatment, including hospital stays, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation, physical therapy, and future medical expenses related to the malpractice.

    Lost wages

    Reimbursement for the income lost due to the victim's inability to work during recovery or as a result of disability caused by the malpractice. This may include both past and future lost earnings.

    Pain and suffering

    Compensation for the physical and emotional pain, suffering, and distress experienced by the victim as a result of the malpractice. This includes both the immediate impact and any long-term effects on the victim's quality of life.

    Disability or impairment

    Damages awarded for any permanent disability, impairment, or loss of function caused by the malpractice. This can include physical disabilities, loss of mobility, loss of sensory functions, or cognitive impairments.

    Emotional distress

    Compensation for psychological or emotional harm suffered by the victim, such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or other mental health issues resulting from the malpractice.

    Loss of consortium

    In cases where the malpractice has significantly affected the victim's relationship with their spouse or family members, damages may be awarded to compensate for the loss of companionship, support, and intimacy.

    Punitive damages

    In rare cases where the healthcare provider's conduct was particularly egregious or showed intentional misconduct, punitive damages may be awarded. These damages aim to punish the defendant and deter similar behavior in the future.

    Wrongful death

    If the medical malpractice results in the death of the patient, their surviving family members may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim, seeking compensation for funeral expenses, loss of financial support, loss of companionship, and other related damages.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
