What is Medical Malpractice?
Proving medical malpractice in West Virginia requires that three main criteria be met. Healthcare providers must have neglected to exercise the same degree of care and skill required and/or expected by similar healthcare providers facing the same situation. Additionally, this neglect must be shown to have been a proximate cause of the injury or wrongful death of the victim. Finally, if the medical professional’s neglect to follow the accepted standard of care limited the patient’s chances for recovery or resulted in an increased risk of harm by at least 25%, you may have a right to recover financial compensation from the negligent party for medical bills, hospitalization, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses. The statute for filing a medical malpractice claim in West Virginia is two years. Do not wait.
