You have to prove your healthcare provider was negligent in order to file a West Virginia medical malpractice claim.
Although these kinds of claims are often a result of doctor's liability, they can also be brought against a number of healthcare professionals, including:
- technicians; and
- hospital workers.
These parties are held to an accepted standard of care comparable to that of professionals with similar skills and training. When they deviate from these standards and cause harm to patients, they can be held accountable in a West Virginia medical malpractice claim.
Consequences of Medical Errors
Medical mistakes can lead to additional treatment, prolonged recovery and time missed from work. In devastating cases, medical mistakes can lead to the loss of a body part or even death.
