Why do you need an attorney?

All medical malpractice cases are complex. This is especially true when a medical mistake happens to a person who is incarcerated in the Washington prison system. Your attorney will be responsible for handling all aspects of your case, including:

  • gathering all evidence required to prove that a medical mistake occurred.
  • working with trusted medical professionals to review your healthcare records so they can fully assess what happened and provide expert testimony on your behalf.
  • negotiating with all parties involved to reach a settlement that covers all expenses related to the medical mistake.

How does medical malpractice happen in prison?

There are various ways that someone incarcerated can experience medical malpractice. This could due to a medical error committed by a member of Washington prison medical staff, such as a misdiagnosis, medication error, surgical mistake, and more. Often, medical malpractice in prison revolves around a failure to provide appropriate medical care or ignoring an inmate’s injuries.

Most prisons have medical clinics, infirmaries, and dental clinics designed to provide care for inmates. If an inmate’s condition is serious, prison medical staff is supposed to send an inmate to outside specialists for care. Failing to do so could constitute medical malpractice.

Those who are victims of medical malpractice could be entitled to various types of compensation, including coverage of their medical bills, damages for pain and suffering, lost wages and loss of future earnings (if applicable).
