MEDICAL ERRORS HAVE SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES
Doctors are human and sometimes make mistakes. But when a doctor is negligent and causes you injuries, you shouldn’t have to pay for medical care that you shouldn’t have needed, especially if you miss work while you heal. With the help of the attorneys at The Law Firm of Carlton F. Bennett, P.L.L.C., you can receive compensation for the medical care you needed after the injury and for lost wages if you were not able to work. This compensation can help you recover financially after you’ve been hurt.
Medical malpractice lawsuits are highly technical and complex. The Law Firm of Carlton F. Bennett, P.L.L.C., has successfully litigated many of these cases, and you can rely on our expertise. We’ve worked with medical malpractice lawsuits in areas such as:
- Home health care
- Orthopedic medicine
- Defective hernia mesh
A doctor or hospital is not automatically liable because a patient had a poor outcome. To bring a successful medical malpractice claim in Virginia, you must establish negligence. Put another way, a patient must prove that they receive substandard care from the medical provider and that the poor caused harm. Our law firm knows how to build and pursue malpractice claims. We employ a nurse as a legal consultant on our staff, and we work with many qualified medical experts to build cases. Trust us to understand your situation and to help you seek justice for your injuries.
