What Is A WV Medical Malpractice Claim?

A WV medical malpractice claim is a legal claim for damages by a medical patient against a doctor or other healthcare provider, seeking compensation for injuries, damages and economic losses alleged to have been caused by the professional medical negligence of the healthcare provider. 

In West Virginia, medical malpractice claims are allowed pursuant to the provisions of the Medical Professional Liability Act (W. Va. Code § 55-7b-1, et seq.), which governs how a WV medical malpractice action must be instituted and prosecuted.

What Is Medical Malpractice?

The term “medical malpractice” refers to negligence during the course of medical treatment by a healthcare provider, which causes complications, injuries or wrongful death to a patient.

Patients and their families who suffer as a result of medical negligence should receive fair compensation for their pain, suffering and losses. However, sometimes bad outcomes occur in medicine, which are not a result of any medical malpractice. 

Because it is not always clear if a serious harm or injury following a medical treatment or procedure is a result of  medical negligence or a common and expected complication, it is thus critical that you have your claim evaluated by a competent, experienced WV medical malpractice lawyer.

A highly experienced medical negligence claim attorney can help you differentiate whether a bad outcome resulted from medical negligence by a physician, hospital, nurse or other medical treatment provider. 

If you or a loved one suffered an unexpected harm as a result of a medical procedure and want to assess and pursue a West Virginia claim, call the experienced WV medical malpractice attorneys at the Morgantown WV office of Adams Legal Group, PLLC today for a free evaluation of your medical negligence claim  (304) 381-2166. You can also simply click the button to start a conversation with us through a web-form message.
