Filing a Doctor or Hospital Malpractice Lawsuit in Des Moines, Mason City, and Cedar Rapids
While doctor malpractice lawsuits are obviously filed against the doctor, hospital malpractice lawsuits can be brought against both the hospital and the hospital staff member responsible for your condition. This can include nurses, x-ray technicians, laboratory technicians, and any other hospital staff member who contributed to the medical malpractice. Malpractice lawsuits can also be filed against medical specialists who are considered independent contractors to the hospital, such as radiologists, anesthesiologists, etc.
When a hospital or doctor malpractice claim is successful, you will be awarded compensation for your pain and suffering, medical expenses (past, current, future), on-going medical treatment, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, decreased enjoyment of life, expenses for any adaptive equipment, and more. To increase your chances of filing a successful malpractice claim and recovering maximum compensation, it’s best to work with an experienced Iowa medical malpractice lawyer from the early onset of your case. A well-practiced attorney can investigate your case and collect the evidence necessary to prove fault, establish negligence, and recover a settlement.
