Damage to health means a deterioration in the state of health. It can range from poor healing, disability or further injury to death.
If a patient suffers damage to his or her health due to a doctor’s error and his or her condition worsens despite treatment by the doctor, or further injuries and damage to organs are added, the doctor is liable.
The prerequisite is a connection (causality) between medical errors and damage to health. It must be demonstrable that the medical error has caused the worsening of the state of health.
If a doctor has breached his duties, an expert examines whether the damage to health was caused by the breach of duty. Only then does the doctor become liable for damages. The compensation can also include compensation for pain and suffering.
Every damage to health is individually different. It may be difficult to differentiate whether the damage would have occurred without the intervention of a doctor. We will help you with the proof. Take advantage of an initial consultation.
