Medical Malpractice

When a medical professional fails to provide the appropriate standard of care and causes a person injuries, then the patient may have a medical malpractice claim. Medical malpractice cases are a very specialized area of law that can be complex. Markow Walker’s team of medical malpractice lawyers can provide legal representation and advice for insurance companies that insure medical providers against malpractice claims.

What does a medical malpractice case involve?

If a person sustains injuries or health issues that were caused by the negligence of a medical provider, then they may seek to recover funds to compensate for their damages. Compensation may be sought for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Loss of enjoyment
  • Scarring and physical disfigurement
