Medical malpractice laws are designed to protect patients' rights and provide compensation when patients are injured as the result of negligence. The injury you suffered must be actual, provable, and still existing, however. Mere slights by rude medical staff or even medical errors that did not result in illness or injury may not have sufficient damages to survive a legal suit. While theoretically you can seek compensation for any injury caused by negligence, the reality is that medical malpractice cases are time consuming, complex, and costly, so minor harms may not be worth the difficult process of litigating.
But all cases are different. There is no way to answer this generally without assessing the facts of your situation. At NB&W, we offer all case assessments free of charge and for no obligation – so contact us today and tell us what happened.
If you have been hurt or injured by a healthcare provider’s error or other medical mistake, you may have a case against that provider. But timeframes for filing a medical negligence suit are limited, and building a case takes time, so it is critical that you start today. At NB&W, we are here to listen and answer your questions. Help us help you; help us make sure our neighbors’ rights are protected and negligent parties are held accountable.
