What Are the Damages in a Medical Malpractice Claim?

a gavel near a stethoscope and prescription padMedical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional injures a patient while performing their job. Medical malpractice takes many forms and may include surgical errors, medication errors, birth injuries, and more.

Medical malpractice may leave victims in physical, emotional, and financial turmoil. These victims should not have to foot any sudden medical bills and lost wages out of their own pockets when negligent medical practitioners were responsible for their injuries.

Below, our Cleveland attorneys discuss the damages that these victims may recover through a medical malpractice claim.

The Effects of Medical Malpractice

The effects of medical malpractice can be catastrophic. Errors such as an incorrect amputation, a deadly infection caused by unsanitary surgical conditions, or a lifelong birth injury can have devastating effects on the victim and their family.

Sadly, the effects of many instances of medical malpractice are irreversible. As such, victims and their families are often left with monumental costs in medical bills and lost wages. This can amount to hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars in unexpected costs for victims.
