Richmond Attorneys

Legal MeetingPatients turn to doctors for help when they are injured or sick, and they trust that the healthcare professional will treat them and make them better. Unfortunately, that does not always happen. Sometimes, doctors and other healthcare professionals make preventable mistakes and cause further harm to their patients. When that happens, patients are left with serious injuries and in some cases, their life is never the same.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a negligent healthcare worker, it is important to know you can hold them liable for paying the damages. A Richmond attorney can help you secure the maximum compensation you deserve.

How a Lawyer can Help with Your Case

Many people think they can file a medical malpractice claim on their own, particularly if the insurance company has already offered a settlement. Unfortunately, if you do not work with a Richmond medical malpractice lawyer, you will likely not receive the full settlement you need for your recovery.

Our experienced attorneys will investigate the circumstances surrounding your injury and identify all liable parties. We work closely with medical experts to create a strong case that outlines the full extent of your injuries, and the physical and emotional toll they have taken.

Our attorneys are also skilled negotiators that will hold the insurance company accountable for paying the full amount of damages you deserve. We will also always make sure your claim is filed properly and on time so you obtain the compensation you need as quickly as possible.

Types of Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle

Medical malpractice can occur in a number of ways. The most common types of medical malpractice cases our experienced attorneys handle are as follows:

  • Surgical errors, including wrong-site surgery, delayed surgery, and unnecessary surgery
  • Birth injuries, including cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, and forceps injuries
  • Misdiagnosis, including failure to diagnose, delayed diagnosis, and unnecessary invasive tests
  • Medication errors
  • Post-operative infections
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Anesthesia errors

Any type of medical malpractice has the potential to change the victim’s life forever, and the laws in Virginia are complex. A medical malpractice lawyer will take care of the legwork associated with your claim while you focus on your recovery.

Liability in Medical Malpractice Cases

It is normal to think that only doctors are liable in medical malpractice cases. However, one of the most complex aspects of any malpractice claim is determining liability. A number of parties could be liable for medical malpractice, including:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Surgeons
  • Emergency room staff members
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Pharmacists
  • Hospital administration staff

Our Richmond medical malpractice lawyers can determine which party is liable, and we will hold them accountable for paying the full damages you deserve.

Call Our Richmond Attorneys Today

If you or a loved one has suffered harm due to a negligent healthcare worker, do not hesitate to call our Richmond attorneys at MichieHamlett. We will advise on the complex laws and how they apply to your case, and will hold negligent parties liable for paying the full damages you deserve.
