We approach each case with compassion while aggressively pursuing maximum compensation through our comprehensive investigation process.

Common Medical Negligence That Causes Harm

When doctors, nurses, technicians, or hospitals fail to provide an adequate level of care, it can lead to irreversible injury or death. Some examples of medical negligence cases we handle include:

  • Surgical Errors - Mistakes during surgery can cause severe bleeding, nerve damage, infection, and other serious complications.
  • Medication Errors - Getting the wrong dose or type of medication can result in painful side effects, organ damage, and even a coma or death.
  • Misdiagnosis - If testing or analysis of symptoms is inadequate, a patient may not get treatment for the actual illness they have.
  • Anesthesia Errors - Improper administration can affect breathing, blood pressure, cause brain injury, and other life-threatening problems.
  • Birth Injuries - If medical staff does not monitor fetal distress appropriately, cerebral palsy, brain damage, and other impairments can occur.

And any form of physical, mental or emotional damage due to poor medical care - we can help you build a strong case.

Damages Available in Medical Malpractice Cases

Damages Available in Medical Malpractice Cases

If you or a loved one experienced harm due to medical negligence, filing a malpractice lawsuit provides a legal avenue to pursue compensation for losses incurred. Money won in a settlement or court award covers damages like:

Economic Damages

Economic damages in medical malpractice cases account for tangible, quantifiable losses the victim suffered due to medical negligence. Types of economic damages may consist of:

Medical Costs

This includes past and future medical bills related to corrective treatments, surgeries, hospitalization, physical rehabilitation, at-home nursing care, specialized medical equipment (wheelchairs, hospital beds, etc.), prescription medication costs and other healthcare expenses.

Lost Income

If injuries from malpractice resulted in partial or full disability, preventing the victim from working and earning an income, calculations determine the amount of wages lost over time. Projected future loss of earnings is also factored in.

Loss of Services

If injuries prohibit completing household services benefitting the family, quantifying these losses provides additional evidence. Expert witnesses often calculate these costs.

Non-Economic Damages

After establishing concrete financial losses, the non-economic damages show the deeper impact of medical negligence on quality of life. Types of non-economic damages may include:

Pain and Suffering

Using testimony, medical reports, and tangible evidence, lawyers demonstrate physical discomfort and emotional trauma experienced, whether a few days of acute pain or permanent injuries causing lifelong suffering.

Loss of Companionship

If medical negligence resulted in death or severe disability, testimony addresses this change in family dynamic. Close relatives describe emotional impact and inability to interact with victim as before.

If medical negligence altered your life or caused premature death of a loved one, a lawyer can help calculate all applicable damages. This provides the building blocks for maximum compensation.

How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases

At Moseley Collins Law, our legal team conducts in-depth investigations to build strong medical malpractice cases for injured clients. Key aspects include:

Comprehensive Record Review

We collect all medical documentation related to the negligence incident and thoroughly analyze it to understand exactly what happened. Records gathered and examined may consist of:

Hospital Chart Notes

Nurse shift notes, physician treatment logs and all other real-time documentation by hospital staff helps establish timelines and identify negligent actions.

Diagnostic Test Results

Lab reports, pathology reports, radiology film and more – if errors were made in testing, diagnosis or reporting, the proof lies in the documentation.

Billing Statements

Itemized lists help quantify all costs incurred from malpractice-related treatments and procedures.

Specialist Physician Reviews

We retain a team of four or more independent specialist doctors renowned in their fields to scrutinize records for deviations from accepted standards of care. Their detailed analyses strengthen arguments regarding negligence.

Hospital Protocol Experts

Those with insider knowledge of hospital systems and processes also provide pivotal perspective on where protocols were breached.

Additional Witness Interviews

Our lawyers conduct interviews with family members, first responders, surviving hospital staff involved in the incident, and other potential witnesses. Their memories and testimonies supplement case details.

Scene Evaluations (If Applicable)

If negligence resulting in injury or death occurred at a physical medical facility, we may send specialized investigators to photograph and evaluate the site – surgical suites, patient rooms, ED bays, etc.
