Arlington Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Working to Hold Negligent Medical Professionals & Facilities Accountable

Doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, urgent care centers, hospitals, and other medical practitioners and facilities have a duty to provide a reasonable standard of care to patients. Unfortunately, this duty is not always upheld. According to an expansive 2016 study on medical errors by Johns Hopkins Hospital, an estimated 250,000 deaths occur in the United States every year as a result of medical mistakes. This makes medical malpractice/negligence the third-leading cause of death in the U.S.

If you or your loved one was the victim of medical malpractice, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries, additional required treatment, pain and suffering, wrongful death, and other damages. These types of claims are incredibly complex; it is important that you speak to an experienced attorney who can help you navigate the process.

Proving Liability in Medical Malpractice Cases

It can be very difficult to prove that a medical practitioner, hospital, or facility acted negligently. Just because a patient does not experience the desired outcome following treatment does not mean that the duty of reasonable care was breached. For a successful case, you will need to show that the standard of care was violated and that this violation led to your injuries/the death of your loved one. In most cases, this requires the assistance of medical experts.

Examples of Medical Malpractice

Some of the most common forms of medical malpractice include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Failure to treat
  • Incorrect medication dosage
  • Defective medical devices
  • Dangerous drugs
  • Birth injuries
  • Surgical errors
  • Prescription errors
  • Anesthesia mistakes

Overall, medical malpractice cases make up a relatively small portion of all personal injury litigation. These cases are complex—but they are not hopeless. If you believe you or your loved one suffered injuries, illness, complications, or harm as a result of medical malpractice or negligence, our firm can help.

Discuss Your Case with Our Legal Team

It is important that you act quickly as, in most cases, you only have two years from the date that medical malpractice occurred to bring a claim. There are certain exceptions to this statute of limitations, including instances involving a failure to diagnose certain forms of cancer or malignant tumors, but these are relatively rare. Additionally, in Virginia, no medical malpractice claim may be filed if more than 10 years have passed since the date that the medical negligence occurred.

In addition to the statute of limitations and statute of repose, it is important that you are aware that you may be subject to certain caps on damages in your medical malpractice case. Our Arlington medical malpractice lawyer can help you understand your rights and answer any questions you may have. We are prepared to serve as the aggressive advocate you need as we work to recover the maximum compensation you are owed.
