A health care attorney can help you discover what services are available to you and how you can pay for them using private medical insurance plans, Medicaid or Medicare, or a combination of plans. Health care attorneys understand the health care industry and the roles of hospitals, doctors, nurses, dentists, physical therapists, and pharmacists. They know the latest drug therapies, medical procedures, and medical technologies.
An attorney can recognize injuries caused by mistakes; they know the most common mistakes that cause injuries, and they know how to find and present information useful to prove your case. For example, if a doctor leaves behind gauze in your body during surgery, resulting in an infected wound that requires even more surgery, the doctor committed medical malpractice.
Wrongful death lawyers handle cases where someone is killed, whether the person who caused the death meant to do it or not. If a loved one dies because of someone else’s actions, a wrongful death lawyer can help you understand what happened, who is responsible, whether you deserve any compensation for losing your loved one, and whether anyone should be charged with a crime.
