Medical professionals must abide by an extremely high standard of care, and any deviation from that standard can result in severe injury or even death. However, mistakes can happen, and if you believe that you or a loved one has suffered from a doctor error, you need to act quickly with the help of a Seattle specialist for medical lawsuit claims.
A medical malpractice claim can be complex and requires expert testimony to be successful. This type of evidence is essential to prove that a physician breached their duty to care for the patient, and that this breach directly caused the patient’s injuries. The attorneys of Thoeny Law Office will sift through medical records and establish your case with the appropriate healthcare experts. The firm’s team of personal injury attorneys has extensive experience with the laws of the state and will ensure that your medical malpractice suit is viable.
According to a study conducted by Johns Hopkins, fatal medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States, with more than 10,000 people dying each year from preventable medical mistakes. This shocking statistic is why it’s so important to consult an experienced lawyer to determine if you have a valid medical malpractice claim.
If you do have a valid claim, the law allows for compensation for your past and future losses. This can include lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. You can also recover punitive damages and exemplary damages if you successfully file your medical malpractice claim.
The value of your case will depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of your injuries and the extent to which they affect your daily life. A qualified Seattle medical malpractice attorney can work with expert economists to help you determine the impact of your injuries on your quality of life and ability to earn income.
In Washington, the statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice claim is three years from when you discover or reasonably should have discovered your injuries. For cases involving foreign objects left inside the body, the time period is extended by one year.
