The Law of Medical Malpractice – How To Know If You’re Eligible
While medical malpractice law can be tricky, there is a simple test to know if you’re eligible to file a lawsuit.
It’s called the 4 D’s. If you can prove all 4, then you may have a legitimate case.
- Duty – You had a client/physician relationship. To expand on this further, if you go to a doctor, they’re supposed to do the right thing for you. They need to take into account your health and act on what will help you. We put a lot of trust in doctors. Unfortunately, as you’ve found, that trust can be misused or taken advantage of.
- Deviation – Doctors and nurses are held to a high standard because they go to school to learn advanced skills. But, when they go outside of the realm of what is accepted, is when you start to run into problems. For example, they gave you a wrong medication, misdiagnosed your condition, gave you medication that affected you negatively, or committed improper surgical form. These are all “Deviations” of what is expected in medical care.
- Damages – The doctor or nurse caused you physical, emotional, or even financial damage.
- Direct Cause – This means that the doctor or nurse was directly responsible for causing your injury or injuries.
How Much Can You Receive For a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?
In California, the maximum you can receive is $250,000 for “pain and suffering”. However, you can also be entitled to economic losses and attorney’s fees.
Clients of Andrew Nissen Have Received Large Settlements From Negligent Healthcare Professionals
Andrew has helped many victims of medical malpractice during his career.
One client, for example, won $600k in a dental malpractice suit.
Another client won $1 million in a medical malpractice suit.
Note that these are just examples, and not what you should necessarily expect.
Time Is Not On Your Side. You Need To Act Quickly
In the State of California, you have up to three years to act on a medical malpractice suit against a negligent doctor. This is known as the “statute of limitations” Or, you have up to one year after an injury was discovered.
This might seem like more than enough time for you, but it’s not. Permit me to explain why. Acting on a medical malpractice lawsuit can be difficult if it’s been a while since your injury.
If the doctor is truly negligent, they might be let go. Or they’ll move somewhere else. Life can go by in a blur, and you’ll be out of time. And, during the COVID-19 pandemic, many states are moving towards making doctors immune to lawsuits.
You Don’t Pay Anything Unless We Get You A Settlement
Hospital bills in the United States, even with insurance, can be unaffordable. Paying a lawyer on top of all of that can seem out of reach, especially if you’ve been caused financial damage.
If this is a concern for you, there is some good news. Andrew Nissen works on what is called “contingency basis”. This means that rather than paying him upfront, he’ll get paid if you receive a settlement.
