Effects of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice can cause a variety of injuries and illnesses of differing magnitude.  Some have devastating, lifelong effects and some tragically result in a wrongful death.  Any instance of medical malpractice will result in costs which can cause tremendous financial strain and stress.  The emotional trauma and affects on your lifestyle can also be incredibly hard to deal with for the victim and the victim’s family.  A Cumming personal injury lawyer can help you seek compensation if you or a loved one has experienced this upsetting event.

  • The prescription or administering of drugs with dangerous side effects
  • Adverse reactions caused by administering the wrong drug or wrong amount of a drug
  • Unnecessary surgery resulting in further pain, complications or an unnecessary amputation
  • Injury or death resulting from surgical mistakes
  • Childbirth errors affecting baby, mother, or both
  • Inappropriate treatment or lack of any treatment due to misdiagnosis

The Importance of Legal Representation

At Van Sant Law, LLC, we have extensive experience with such cases.  Furthermore, we have prior experience in defending insurance companies.  This background gives us great insight into what factors may arise and what tactics may be employed during a medical malpractice case.  Our familiarity and expertise assists us in aggressively pursuing compensation and defending your rights.  An insurance company has no reason to tell you what you are entitled to and will endeavor to pay out as little as possible.  We see this as an unacceptable injustice and will be relentless in our efforts to achieve a fair level of compensation.  The Insurance Research Council has even found that claimants represented by lawyers typically receive damages 3.5 times higher than individuals without legal representation.
