The Types of Damages that Could Entitle You to Medical Malpractice Compensation

There are many kinds of ways you could be eligible to recover damages for medical malpractice. For instance, any worsening or additional injury the liable party caused you is not the only way you could take home a settlement or judgment.

Your pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life are also relevant. Medical bills, such as physical therapy, any surgery or hospital stays your malpractice caused you to endure, and mobility aids you have to rent or buy qualify you for damages as well.

  • Loss of guidance
  • Loss of consortium

  • Your loved one’s medical bills prior to their passing

Insurance companies often scour victims’ profiles for opportunities to disprove the victim’s pain and claim for damages.

If you post a picture of yourself at the beach while on pain medication to get through the day, all the adjuster will see is that you are able to have a good time. They will claim that you are not truly hurting. Do not give them this chance.

Our medical malpracrice attorneys in Queens, NY know this aspect of the case can be difficult, but we have to hear everything so we can build your case.

  • Your Queens medical professional had this duty of care to keep you safe.
  • The liable party violated this duty.
  • This violation harmed you.
  • The harm you suffered caused your financial losses.
