Types of Damages in Nursing Home, Medical Malpractice & Birth Injury Claims
When medical providers and caregivers fail to uphold the standard of acceptable care, the consequences can be dire. Sadly, these events tend to affect some of the most vulnerable people in our communities—children, the elderly, and patients battling serious medical conditions.
By filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim against a negligent doctor, hospital, caregiver, or similar entity, you can seek financial compensation for the physical, emotional, and financial hardships you have endured, as well as the many challenges that still lay ahead.
Depending on the specific details of your case, you may be entitled to compensation for the following types of damages:
- Past, current, and future medical expenses
- Past, current, and future lost wages/income
- Past, current, and future pain and suffering
- Loss of earning ability due to permanent injury or illness
- Diminished enjoyment/quality of life
- Miscellaneous out-of-pocket expenses, such as at-home assistance and care
If your loved one tragically passed away due to a preventable medical error, birth injury, or nursing home’s negligence, you may have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit. If successful, you could recover damages such as medical expenses associated with the deceased’s treatment for his or her final injury or illness, funeral and/or burial expenses, loss of income, loss of inheritance, loss of support, loss of companionship, and emotional distress.
At Brown & Barron, we seek to maximize every client’s recovery. Our firm dedicates the necessary time, efforts, and resources to each individual case, and we work directly with every client to provide the guidance and advocacy they need.
When to Hire an Attorney
If you believe you may have a medical malpractice, birth injury, or nursing home abuse case, you should seek professional legal counsel immediately. These are very complex cases; the assistance of a skilled legal professional not only improves your chance of a successful recovery but also allows your voice to be heard as you navigate the legal process.
It is also important that you act quickly, as there are various statutes of limitations that may apply to your case. In nearly all instances, you have just three years from the date of injury or the date on which an injury is discovered to file a medical malpractice, birth injury, or nursing home abuse lawsuit in Maryland.
The same is true of cases involving catastrophic injury and wrongful death.
The sooner you reach out to our Dundalk, MD nursing home, medical malpractice, and birth injury law firm, the sooner we can begin gathering important evidence, obtaining expert testimony from recognized medical industry authorities, and developing a creative, personalized legal strategy on your behalf.
We invite you to contact us today to schedule a completely free and confidential case evaluation with one of our experienced and compassionate lawyers.
