Aggressively pursuing your medical malpractice case
When patient injury or death results from a medical professional’s actions or omissions, it’s called “medical malpractice” or “medical negligence”. With decades of experience and a deep understanding of medicine, the legal team at Catherine Gemma Law knows what it takes to win these lengthy and complex cases, and we won’t rest until you and your loved ones have been fully compensated for any damages.
Recoverable Medical Malpractice Damages
Depending on the extent of your injuries, and whether or not the medical professional’s negligence resulted in a death, you and your family may be entitled to economic, non-economic and punitive damages, including:
- Medical expenses. This includes all past, current and future medical expenses, including ER visits, hospital care, medical devices, doctor’s appointments and more.
- Lost wages and earning capacity. If you’re required to take a leave of absence from work due to your injuries, or you are never able to resume work normally, you may deserve to be compensated for wages you would have earned if you had not been injured.
- Pain and suffering. This refers to the physical pain and suffering your injuries have caused, and will be determined by the nature and extent of your injuries. Pain and suffering damages also include emotional distress caused by your injuries, such as anxiety, depression, fear and mental suffering.
- Loss of consortium. In some cases, the spouse of a medical malpractice victim may be entitled to damages, including a loss of companionship and sexual relations. These damages are most commonly awarded if you have experienced a permanent or life-altering injury.
In addition to the above damages, you may be entitled to additional punitive damages if it is determined that the medical professionals responsible for your injury acted with gross negligence or maliciousness.
