FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I have grounds for a case?
Whether or not you have the foundation for a solid medical malpractice claim may vary depending on the particular situation. This is one reason it is so important to involve an attorney to help with your case early in the process, as an attorney with proper knowledge and resources can evaluate the situation to determine whether you have a viable case.
What are the types of damages I can recover for my medical malpractice claim?
There are two main types of damage that an injured patient may be able to recover money for in a medical malpractice claim. These are economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages typically include loss of earnings, medical expenses and related financial losses. Non-economic damages are capped at $250,000 in California and may include emotional trauma, pain and suffering and similar injuries or losses that are not physical or financial in nature.
How do I know what my claim is worth?
The value of a specific medical malpractice claim in Riverside may vary depending on the specific situation. The extent of injuries will most likely dictate what a case may be worth, and it will be up to your lawyer to prove the full extent of economic and non-economic damages in order to recover the money you deserve.
What can a Riverside medical malpractice attorney do to help me?
Because medical malpractice cases are generally technical in nature, dealing with these may be difficult. They are also often expensive to investigate and litigate, and a Riverside medical malpractice attorney with the experience and resources can properly handle your case, fronting all expenses and seeking the best possible result.
