Medical Malpractice FAQs

What is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice is a legal term used to describe medical issues caused by mistakes made by medical professionals (surgeons, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, etc.) that result in serious illnesses, injuries or other health problems.

Am I eligible for financial compensation for medical malpractice?

You very well could be eligible for financial compensation for medical malpractice. However, you won’t know for sure until you talk to an attorney about your specific case. Each medical malpractice case is unique. And so is our approach towards each case.

Should I accept a settlement offer for my medical malpractice case?

Always talk to an attorney first. Often, settlement offers don’t even come close to covering the full cost of medical malpractice cases. Insurance companies representing the doctor or hospital often make lowball offers soon after they realize they made a mistake. They want injured patients or their families to agree to accept such an offer and simply go away.

Can I negotiate for more money for my medical malpractice case?

Yes. You can and should ask for more money to cover all expenses associated with your medical malpractice case. Remember, you didn’t do anything wrong. Why should you have to pay for mistakes made by someone else?

How much is my medical malpractice case worth?

There’s no set dollar amount for how much money medical malpractice cases are worth. Each one is unique. Some cases might be worth a few thousand dollars. Others may be worth millions of dollars depending on the circumstances of the case.

What expenses are covered by medical malpractice?

Medical expenses and expenses associated include lost income, lost future income, long-term physical therapy, future medical expenses, future surgical operations, pain and suffering, and home modifications (due to a permanent disability).

Can I file a lawsuit for medical malpractice in Alabama?

Yes. Often, taking legal action turns out to be best way to get the money you deserve for your medical malpractice-related expenses. This is especially true if the doctor, hospital, another medical professional or the insurance company representing them refuses to fairly compensate you.

Is there a deadline for taking legal action for medical malpractice in Alabama?

In most cases, injury victims and their families have two years to file a lawsuit to resolve their medical malpractice case in Alabama. Known as the statute of limitations, this deadline might seem like a long time. But the reality is injury victims or their families need to take legal action right away. Otherwise, critical pieces of evidence might not be there if they wait too long to respond.

Why should I hire a lawyer for my medical malpractice case?

Medical professionals and the companies they work for often hire entire teams of attorneys to defend their best interests. That’s why it’s important to have a lawyer on your side to be your voice for justice. When you have a lawyer working for you, you can level the playing field and demand the financial compensation you and your family deserve.
