Seeing Compensation After an Injury or Illness

Getting injured or ill at a hospital almost seems counterintuitive. You do not go into a hospital to get worse. In fact, you may have already been at the hospital because you were hoping they would fix another health problem you were suffering from. However, it is certainly possible that an employee at the hospital acted negligently and caused you to become injured or ill. When this happens, you should not be fearful when filing a lawsuit or think that there is no way you could win. Instead, you should be determined, with our help, to seek compensation for your injuries. Getting injured or ill at a hospital can mean that you have even greater hospital and medical bills in your future and these are not things you should pay out of pocket for. 

Why not hire a personal injury lawyer?

You do not want to hire an attorney who only understands general personal injury cases. Each area of the law is very nuanced and medical cases are no different. When you were injured or made ill at a hospital, you want an attorney who understands legal jargon and medical jargon. This can go a long way in ensuring you are getting an advocate who speaks the language necessary for your lawsuit. 

What kind of compensation might I be entitled to?

You may be wondering what kind of compensation you can get if you were injured at a hospital. Some of the most common types of compensation are:

  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of health benefits
  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Physical therapy bills
  • Pain and suffering

Similarly, if a loved one was made ill or injured and passed away at a hospital, it is possible for the family to receive compensation for things like funeral expenses, loss of spousal support, and pain and suffering.
