Personal injuries resulting from the negligence of others can be life-altering. A personal injury case can allow for the recovery of medical expenses, lost wages, and other monetary damages, as well as for the personal injuries and emotional distress of the injured person.
Medical malpractice is a broad term generally used to describe any treatment, lack of treatment, or other departure from accepted standards of medical care, health care, or safety on the part of a healthcare provider that causes harm to a patient. Examples of medical malpractice are too numerous to list. Medical malpractice can include the following: misdiagnosis, improper treatment, failure to treat, delay in treatment, failure to perform appropriate follow-up, prescription errors, etc. In many instances, medical malpractice is not obvious to a lay-person and requires the review and analysis by medical experts.
Wrongful death can be defined as the loss of the life of an individual resulting from the willful or negligent act of another person or persons. Wrongful death can be intentional or unintentional. Plaintiffs who prevail in a wrongful death lawsuit may recover medical and funeral expenses in addition to the amount of economic support they could have received if the decedent had lived and, in some instances, a sum of money to compensate for grief or loss of services or companionship.
Auto collisions can sometimes be more than a fender bender. Sometimes people involved in auto collisions suffer from physical harm. A Salem car accident lawyer can help you seek damages for medical expenses, lost wages, disfigurement, property and potentially punitive damages.
