ESTABLISHING LIABILITY IN MEDICAL CASES
Our medical malpractice attorney Lynn C. Harris in Salt Lake City has extensive experience representing victims harmed by the negligence of a health care professional. He is dedicated to representing victims and their families in medical malpractice cases involving birth injury, cerebral palsy, or any serious injury or condition. He can help victims of medical malpractice file a legal claim so that they can receive compensation for their hardships. If the negligent party or insurance company is reluctant to reach an agreeable settlement, he will litigate in court to help clients achieve fair and just compensation. Medical malpractice settlements generally cover a client's medical expenses, legal expenses, wages lost due to missed work, and compensation for pain and suffering.
Because victims face emotional, physical, and financial hardships, compensation in medical malpractice cases usually covers medical bills, lost wages, damage to property, and pain and suffering. There are several factors that determine the amount of compensation a victim of medical malpractice will receive in a successful settlement or judgment; these factors include medical expenses and other related costs, lost income due to time away from work, long-term disability, emotional damages, and damage to property.
In order for a medical malpractice lawyer to successfully litigate a claim, the victim must prove that the health care provider owed a duty to the patient, that the health care provider failed in performing that duty, and that the patient suffered a personal injury, such as cerebral palsy, as a result of the health care provider's failure to follow through on that duty.
Some victims of medical malpractice become permanently disabled as a result of their doctor's actions. They face long-term rehabilitation and may not be able to return to work. To attain deserved compensation for such victims, an experienced medical malpractice lawyer can bring a claim against any health care providers that have been negligent, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and dentists, as well as corporate entities such as hospitals, nursing homes, and insurance companies. If you suspect that you or a loved one has been a victim of medical malpractice, we encourage you to speak with our medical malpractice lawyer in Utah. Because the statute of limitations to file a medical malpractice claim in Utah is two years, it is important to contact Mr, Harris as soon as possible to discuss your case.
