Compensation in a Medical Malpractice Case

TOP DOG LAWMedical malpractice victims have the legal right to pursue compensation for the losses a doctor, hospital, or other healthcare provider caused them. This includes all types of losses, including financial, but also physical, emotional, and mental health complications directly related to the actions or inactions of the medical provider.

Compensation in a medical malpractice case may include:

  • All related medical bills
  • Long-term rehabilitation and care needs
  • Medication needs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Emotional trauma
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Lost time at work and benefits

If you suffered an injury, speak to our legal team. Do not wait too long. Under Alabama law, you have two years from the incident date to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. That does not give you much time to seek out compensation owed to you.

Where Do Medical Malpractice Accidents Occur in Birmingham?

Medical malpractice can occur in any doctor’s office, hospital, medical center, urgent care center, or other locations. Birmingham has numerous medical centers, including UAB Hospital, Ascension St. Vincent’s, and Huntsville Hospital. There are numerous doctor’s offices, thousands of dentists and pediatric offices, and many other providers throughout the metro area.

Remember to note that medical malpractice is an avoidable situation. That means that if the doctor or other provider followed the recommended, expected level of care that other doctors can have, they may not have let you suffer.

Even when a hospital does good work, the losses a single provider can cause are numerous, and they should be held accountable for them. Medical malpractice, according to a study from Texas A&M University, costs the healthcare industry billions.
