The negligence or incompetence of a physician or healthcare professional could have long-term ramifications for your health and finances. While no one can put a price tag on your health, it might be possible to ease the financial burdens you might face as a result of medical malpractice.
Consequences of Medical Malpractice
Unfortunately, in the United States, the most common form of medical malpractice is a surgical error. If you experienced medical malpractice, you are likely facing long-lasting consequences, which might include:
- Severe and permanent injuries
- Significant medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Increased burdens on your family members
- Economic costs associated with medical equipment and changes made to your home that are necessary to accommodate a disability
What Can I Expect From A Medical Malpractice Lawyer?
