Frequently Asked Questions
WHO BEARS LIABILITY IN YOUNGSTOWN MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CASES?
Most often, the doctor who committed an act of negligence against you, including a doctor that engaged in a “never event” that led to severe injury during surgery or childbirth, will bear liability for the injuries you sustained. However, in some cases, the hospital or facility where the act of medical malpractice took place will also bear liability for the doctor’s negligent actions. You may also file a medical malpractice claim against a medical facility when a nurse or other staff member employed by that facility commits an act of medical malpractice.
In most cases of medical malpractice, you will not pursue compensation from the doctor directly. Instead, you will pursue compensation from the doctor’s medical malpractice insurance company, which will handle determining the compensation you should expect for those injuries.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO PROVE IN ORDER TO ESTABLISH MEDICAL MALPRACTICE?
Talk to your lawyer about what you will need to prove in your specific medical malpractice case. There are several elements you may need to take into consideration.
You will need to show that you had a doctor/patient relationship with the doctor you intend to sue for medical malpractice. If the doctor/patient relationship did not exist, you do not have grounds for a claim.
You will need to establish that the provider committed an act of negligence that led to you receiving a lower standard of care than you deserved, based on those standards of care across medical practices. If you suffered ill effects from a treatment despite the doctor doing his due diligence and offering a high standard of care, you might not have grounds for a claim.
You will need to display the damages, whether physical or financial, that you suffered as a result of that act of negligence. You may need to show, for example, that you suffered injuries that required further medical attention, or that your medical bills or missed time at work grew considerably as a result of your care provider’s negligent actions.
WHAT COMPENSATION CAN YOU RECOVER FOR MEDICAL MALPRACTICE?
Generally, compensation for medical malpractice claims will break down into the same categories as any other personal injury claim. You can pursue compensation for medical expenses resulting from the medical malpractice, including any increased bills resulting from the malpractice, and any financial damages you sustained, including the lost income that may have resulted if your injuries prevented you from working. Furthermore, you can pursue compensation for the pain and suffering you experienced as a result of a care provider’s negligence.
CAN I SUE MY DOCTOR IF I SUFFERED SERIOUS SIDE EFFECTS FROM A PROCEDURE?
In addition to a duty to provide a high standard of care to their patients, doctors also have a duty to inform their patients about the potential risks associated with a procedure. If you suffer serious side effects that your care provider should have known about, that had a high chance of happening, and that would have prevented you from having the procedure if you had known about them, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim.
