Medical Malpractice & Negligence Attorneys Vancouver
Medical malpractice claims are typically complex, expensive and difficult cases. Because of the difficulty of these cases, it is vitally important to thoroughly investigate and speak to an experienced attorney early in the process. Don’t sign anything before talking to experienced Vancouver WA medical malpractice lawyers.
Although thousands of medical malpractice errors cause serious injury in this country annually, many medical professionals and non-professionals refuse to admit their wrongdoing. Often, the insurance companies who represent the medical professionals will choose to fight the victim rather than do what is necessary to help the victim or the victim’s family recover or be fairly compensated for their losses.

Recent research indicates that diagnostic errors are far and away the most common form of medical malpractice.

Even more significantly, these claims accounted for more than two thirds (68 percent) of the amount paid by medical malpractice insurers. Other similar studies have placed the proportion of medical malpractice claims involving diagnostic errors in the range of 22 to 38 percent.
Recovering Your Losses Resulting from Medical Malpractice
Unlike many other states, Washington does not place a cap on the amount that patients and families can recover for medical malpractice. This means that victims of medical mistakes are entitled to recover all of their financial and non-financial losses. While our attorneys will need to review the specifics of your case in order to determine how much you may be entitled to recover, the types of damages that are recoverable in medical malpractice claims in Washington include:
- Medical expenses, including the costs of all future treatments, procedures, and medications necessitated by your doctor’s or other health care provider’s mistake;
- Gas, ridesharing services, home modifications, childcare, and other costs incurred as a result of your medical condition;
- Loss of wages, salary, and benefits, including a reduction in income resulting from the long-term effects of your injury or illness; and,
- All forms of non-financial loss, including pain and suffering, emotional trauma, scarring and disfigurement, and loss of companionship and consortium.
