Medical Malpractice

Front Royal Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Medical professionals are some of the most respected members of the community. They provide critical care when our neighbors are sick, and we expect them to exhibit the highest levels of professionalism. Unfortunately, doctors and other medical professionals make errors all the time. They fail to provide the quality care we expect, and patients end up seriously hurt.

At Correll Law Firm, we can help anyone injured by a medical mistake. Contact us today to speak with our Front Royal medical malpractice lawyer about what happened and why you suspect you received substandard care. These are complex cases, so please avoid delay.

Were You the Victim of Medical Malpractice?

Many patients have no idea whether they received substandard care or not. All they know is that they went to the doctor and didn’t improve, or a loved one was admitted to the hospital and died there.

Medical malpractice is a type of professional negligence. A medical professional should follow the correct standard of care depending on the surrounding circumstances. When doctors are negligent, a patient can sue them for injuries.

Our firm can help anyone negligently hurt by:

  • Physicians
  • Nurses
  • Lab techs
  • Radiologists
  • Dentists
  • Pharmacists
  • Psychiatrists
  • Hospitals
  • Nursing homes

These are some of the medical professionals who might be liable for your injuries.

Examples of Medical Malpractice

Some common examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Medication errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Infections
  • Implements left behind
  • Diagnostic errors (delayed or missed diagnosis)
  • Birth injuries
  • Premature discharge from the hospital
  • Lack of informed consent

Patients who are victimized often struggle with ongoing or additional medical expenses. A prescription error, for example, could lead to a stroke or allergic reaction, so the patient is rushed to the emergency room and could spend days in the hospital. A missed cancer diagnosis can result in metastasis, where the cancer spreads to distant sites on the body.

Medical errors prevent people from getting well—in fact, many patients end up sicker than before. Consequently, many of them suffer from lost income because they can’t work, as well as bodily pain and emotional anguish.

Why Medical Malpractice Cases Are Challenging

In Virginia, specific laws apply to medical malpractice cases. These are difficult claims to bring, and you would benefit from the help of an experienced attorney.

Medical malpractice cases hinge on expert testimony. Few members of the public know what a doctor should have done when treating a patient, so an expert is critical. We rely on them to establish the correct standard of care and then opine as to whether your medical team met this standard.

A medical expert can also establish a link between the treatment and your injuries. For example, you could have had an allergic reaction to medication, and an expert can explain to a judge or jury why that happened.

Call Correll Law Firm. Our Front Royal medical malpractice attorney can begin reviewing your medical records and speak with expert witnesses about your case. The more time we have to build up the evidentiary record, the better.

What is a Fair Settlement?

At Correll Law Firm, our goal is to receive the maximum compensation available under Virginia law. For example, we strive to recovery money damages for the following losses:

  • Emergency medical care to stabilize you
  • Ongoing medical treatment
  • Prescription drugs
  • Rehabilitation and counseling
  • Lost income or wages
  • Physical or bodily pain
  • Emotional anguish
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium

When a loved one dies, surviving family members can seek compensation in a wrongful death case. The purpose of that type of claim is to compensate families for their damages, which can include lost services, care, and financial support. Let us analyze whether you have a solid case.

Why You Should Call Correll Law Firm Today

A medical malpractice case requires an experienced Front Royal attorney to help you with:

  • Evidence collection
  • Medical records review
  • Consultation with various expert witnesses
  • Correspondence with insurers and other parties
  • Negotiation for a settlement
  • Preparation for litigation and court filings

We strongly encourage you to reach out as soon as possible. In Virginia medical malpractice cases are usually subject to a two-year statute of limitations. And although there are exceptions, it’s best not to count on one. If you wait too long, you’ll lose the ability to sue and end up with no compensation to show for your efforts.
