Medical Malpractice/Medical Negligence Claims

<h1>Medical Malpractice/Medical Negligence Claims</h1>

Medication Errors ∙ Misdiagnoses ∙ Surgical Errors ∙ Doctor Negligence

Medication errors, misdiagnoses and surgical errors are common causes of medical malpractice injuries and illnesses. These injuries are particularly tragic because we trust our doctors to know what they’re doing and to not make mistakes that can harm us.

If your doctor’s negligence, hospital negligence or an emergency room error has caused you to suffer serious injuries or caused the wrongful death of someone you love, contact a Richmond medical malpractice attorney at Cravens & Noll. We can help you determine whether a medical malpractice claim is viable and in your best interest.

The Importance of a Quality Case Assessment

Medical malpractice cases are unique. Virginia law places a cap or a limit on the amount of damages plaintiffs can receive in “med mal” cases. This places litigators for the injured in a restricted position. Most medical malpractice cases Virginia are tried to judgment as opposed to settled, because this recovery cap reduces incentive for the insurer to resolve cases in settlement.

Because of the unique nature of medical malpractice litigation in Virginia, in every case we take on we prepare for trial from day one.

Our Richmond medical malpractice attorneys are particularly good at assessing medical practice cases on the front end. This is important because there is more risk with these cases due to the recovery cap. We know how to handle these cases and get you results:

  • First: We can provide you with virtually instantaneous feedback during your initial consultation regarding the complexity and viability of your case.
  • Second: If you do have a meritorious case and decide to hire Cravens & Noll to handle your representation, we will map out a detailed case plan and school you about your injury, the medicine involved and the experts we require to prove both liability and damage.
  • Third: You will work directly with medical experts to determine the extent of injury and damage. We have a team of medical experts with whom we consult on a regular basis, and they are at the ready to help us evaluate your potential medical malpractice claim.

Generally, within 90 days of receiving a file, we know with confidence whether or not we are looking at a cognizable claim, and exactly why and what it will take to prove the case in court.
