Do I Have a Case?

The number of individuals and families suffering from medical malpractice is staggering. Medical malpractice claims can be pursued if the patient feels that they experienced injuries as a direct result of the actions or inaction of a medical professional. The following are some of the most common types of medical malpractice claims:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Unreasonable delay in diagnosis or treatment
  • Failure to adequately treat the patient
  • Failure to follow up with the patient
  • Surgical injury
  • Birth injury
  • Incorrectly prescribed medication
  • Not providing informed consent to the patient

A medical professional’s mistake doesn’t have to be obvious. Cases such as a failure to diagnose cancer, a delayed diagnosis, or a failure to follow up could lead to tragic consequences.

Medical malpractice represents one of the leading causes of death in the United States every year and is a contributor to life-long birth injuries such as cerebral palsy.

Those who believe they have suffered from the negligence of a medical professional should report the incident immediately as they may be entitled to compensation for the physical, mental, and emotional trauma they have experienced.

There is a two-year statute of limitations on medical malpractice claims in West Virginia. This allows an injured person two years from the date of injury to pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit. If you wait too long, you risk losing the chance to seek compensation, so get started today!

What Damages Can I Recover With a West Virginia Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?

With a medical malpractice lawsuit, Stewart Bell, PLLC can help you recover a variety of types of compensation, depending on the specific circumstances of your case. This may include compensation for any economic damages you have suffered, such as medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses related to your injury or illness. Future damages that you are reasonably expected to incur may be accounted for in your settlement.

You may also be able to recover non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. Additionally, in some cases, you may be able to recover punitive damages, which are designed to punish the defendant for particularly reckless or negligent behavior. 

It’s important to keep in mind that what you may be able to recover will depend on the facts of your case, so get your free case evaluation today to find out the full value of compensation you’re entitled to!

Who Can Be Held Liable for Medical Malpractice?

Any medical professional that is in the position to make a medical recommendation to their patient may be at fault for medical malpractice if their actions are found to be negligent or out of line with standard procedures. Some of the healthcare providers and industries associated with medical malpractice claims include:

  • Surgeons
  • Dentists
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Chiropractors
  • Cardiologists
  • Pharmacists
  • Nursing homes or other elder care facilities

Medical professionals are human and can make mistakes, but serious consequences can result from ignoring your concerns, which will only lead to more pain and suffering if malpractice did indeed occur. Those who have experienced a medical error should not hesitate to report their concerns as soon as possible and consult with our West Virginia lawyers who are well-versed in the realm of medical malpractice claims.
