Virginia Mason Medical Center Malpractice Lawsuits

IMPORTANT NOTICE: We ask people with potential medical malpractice claims to fill out our Medical Negligence Questionnaire.  This allows you to gather and organize important facts that are critical to our evaluation of your potential claim.  Thank you.


Virginia Mason Medical Center is recognized as one of the nation's best health care facilities. Virginia Mason is well respected in the Seattle area and does a wonderful job helping thousands of people every year. But the facility is not free of incidents involving medical malpractice or hospital negligence. There are medical malpractice and negligence cases at Virginia Mason every year.

Harvard researchers studying a 1 percent sample of patients treated in New York state hospitals were injured, and one-quarter of those died, because of medical negligence. Nationwide, that would have translated into 234,000 injuries and 80,000 deaths in from negligence in American hospitals.

If you or a loved one suffered injuries because of a doctor or hospital's negligence, contact Davis Law Group today. Use our medical malpractice questionnaire to get started.

How Medical Malpractice Cases Work

In a medical malpractice case, when it comes to proving fault, it usually comes down to proving that the doctor or hospital was negligent when administering medical treatment, and as a result, you or a loved one suffered injury or harm. 

Medical malpractice cases are often complex and require the services of an experienced attorney. When dealing with a malpractice case, there are a few things that need to be established:

  • A doctor-patient relationship existed. The doctor must’ve had an obligation to the patient.
  • Proving negligent care. You will need to prove that the doctor did not meet the medical standard of care.
  • Prove an injury occurred. It must be proven that your injuries occurred as a result of the doctor’s negligence.
  • Proving damages. You must prove that you suffered as a result of the malpractice.
  • Prove all elements. You need to prove all elements above “by a preponderance of the evidence.” This means that it needs to be more likely true than not.

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.
