How Our Medical Malpractice Lawyers Build Strong Cases

How Our Medical Malpractice Lawyers Build Strong Cases

The lawyers at Moseley Collins Law rigorously investigate what went wrong in your case before filing a lawsuit. Here are some of the steps we take while assessing the merits of potential negligence cases:

Medical Record Review - We gather all records from before, during and after the injury occurred. The notes and reports help establish a timeline while identifying deviations from standards of care.

Obtaining Opinions from Medical Experts - We consult with board certified doctors in fields relevant to your injury type.

Recreating Care Timelines - Our lawyers develop detailed sequences of events leading up to when the harm occurred and all follow-up care. The chronological reconstructions of treatment reveal when errors happened.

Proving Causation - In order for victims to receive compensation, our lawyers must conclusively demonstrate that subpar medical care directly caused injuries/death. We work with experts to scientifically prove cause and effect.

Uncovering Financial Realities - Part of building leverage during settlement negotiations involves presenting defendants with evidence of the high costs of health treatment victims now require moving forward.

Identifying Vulnerabilities - Skilled medical malpractice lawyers find weaknesses in the other parties’ stories by intensely gathering accounts, records and testimony.

Exploring Previous Incidents - We dig into previous lawsuits, complaints or disciplinary actions associated with defendants that could indicate patterns of negligence.

Damages Available in Medical Malpractice Cases

When doctors, nurses or other medical professionals make errors that hurt patients, the victims have the right to pursue compensation through malpractice lawsuits. Financial and non-economic damages legally recognizable in medical negligence cases aim to help the injured cover losses inflicted.

Economic Damages

Economic damages cover quantifiable monetary losses victims sustain from substandard medical treatment. Main types of economic damages include:

Medical Expenses

If a botched surgery, misdiagnosis or other mistake results in additional required medical care, the victim can claim those costs as damages. Expenses claimed often include hospital bills, medications/devices, surgeries to repair damage, physical rehabilitation, at-home nursing care etc. Documentation is necessary.

Lost Income

By proving the victim missed work time recovering from medical errors, they can seek reimbursement for income losses. Pay stubs before and after help substantiate the claims. Unemployed victims can still recover potential income forfeited.

Loss of Future Earning Capacity

Permanent disabilities that reduce victims’ ability to work or advance their careers in the future warrant financial compensation on top of back pay. Vocational expert testimony often proves reduced earning capacity.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages in medical malpractice cover subjective, quality of life losses victims endure. Types to consider claiming include:

Pain and Suffering

Victims experiencing physical pain, emotional distress, depression, loss of enjoyment etc. from medical incompetence deserve compensation. The losses negatively impact lives.

Loss of Consortium/Companionship

Spouses losing intimacy, companionship etc. from a partner permanently disabled by malpractice may claim consortium damages. Parents may claim related compensation for loss of companionship due to injuries or death of a child.

Punitive Damages

If medical errors resulting from extreme recklessness or intentional choices, punitive damages additionally punish defendants beyond compensating victims. Gross negligence warrants punishment and deterrence.

With experienced attorneys guiding your medical malpractice lawsuit, you improve your chances of recovering fair compensation encompassing the full extent of past, present and future damages the medical negligence inflicted upon your life.
