It includes medical groups, home care, hospice and many community health programs. EvergreenHealth helps thousands of people every year, but incidents of medical malpractice or hospital negligence can and do still happen. In fact, there are medical malpractice and negligence cases at Evergreen Hospital Medical Center every year.

A new study has revealed startling statistics about the number of people killed each year in U.S. hospitals. That number is now estimated to be 195,000 people, or almost twice as many as were estimated in a 1998 report on the same subject.

The attorneys at Davis Law Group know how serious a medical malpractice case can be. Take legal action by contacting us today. Use the medical malpractice questionnaire to get started.

Types of Medical Malpractice

Proving a medical malpractice case is much different and more complex than with other personal injury claims. The facts surrounding your claim are based on past medical records and testimony from medical experts who are familiar with your type of case.

A “complex” case type simply means that expert testimony and medical records are a vital component to proving that the healthcare professional responsible for treating you did act negligently. The combination of strong medical evidence and qualified expert testimony gives victims the best possible chance of financial recovery.

Clear-Cut Case Types

Complex Case Types

  • Post-operation infections
  • Dental mistakes
  • Falls in hospitals or nursing homes
  • Failure to monitor a patient
  • Long-term treatment disputes
  • Nursing home and elderly care incidents

Damages in a Medical Malpractice Case

First of all, you need to know if you qualify for damages in a medical malpractice case. If you cannot prove all of the below elements, you do not qualify to recover compensation:

  • The doctor-patient relationship was established and the relationship existed at the time of the malpractice
  • The medical professional’s actions or negligence was a breach of the duty of care
  • You suffered injuries and damages
  • Your injuries and damages are directly tied to the negligence of the doctor

Once you have proven all of the above items, you can focus on what types of compensation you may be owed. Those damages fall into two categories: economic damages and non-economic damages.

Economic damages include things like medical expensesloss of income, as well as other out-of-pocket expenses related to the injury. All damages are particular to the individual case. 

Non-economic damages are tougher to calculate and are largely subjective. You may hear the term “pain and suffering,” and the amount of compensation you are entitled to is up for debate. You cannot quantify physical pain, stress, the loss of a relationship, etc. 

If you have any questions about your Evergreen Health medical malpractice case, contact Davis Law Group today.

Experts Needed for a Medical Malpractice Case

In most serious accident cases, a personal injury attorney working on behalf of an injured victim will bring in at least one expert witness to bolster the case. Oftentimes these experts are the key to swaying a jury and can be worth millions to the victim’s case. 

The same applies to medical malpractice claims. To legally prove medical malpractice, the victim and their attorney must prove that the doctor or hospital made a decision that no reasonable person would have made under the same or similar circumstances. You must also prove how the violation led to the injury, and what the injury is worth to the victim. 

Experts are needed to prove all those elements. Potential experts include: 

  • Medical experts. To prove that the physician or hospital acted inappropriately or negligently, the expert your attorney hires must be in the same field with similar credentials. If the malpractice case involves multiple at-fault parties, you will need an expert to prove each party breached the standard of care. 
  • Life care planner. Medical malpractice victims are often left with lifelong injuries that cannot be healed. Living with a disability is simply a reality of that person’s life now. Victims in these circumstances need a life care planner to work with the attorney to demonstrate the cost of providing care moving forward.
  • Economist. Experts with a background in finance will calculate the value of past and future medical bills and lost wages. An economist will also take the life care plan and calculate its total value – factoring in inflation and interest.
