When a doctor makes an error in their practice, it is sometimes grounds for a case to be filed against them. Doctors have a responsibility to their patients to exercise reasonable care when treating them. When a patient experiences a medical error, it can, in some cases, be dealt with in the court of law.
Medical malpractice cases typically deal with surgical or medical complications and their side effects. Medical errors that cause injury to a patient may be brought against a defendant as a personal injury claim. The best way to determine how to proceed is to consult with an attorney.

Workers Compensation is a system that provides financial and medical benefits to employees who are injured on the job. Employers are required to offer this insurance to employees. In exchange, the employee cannot sue the employer for negligence in a work-related accident. This is often known as a “no fault” system. When a worker is injured on the job the workers compensation system is the only way injured workers can receive proper financial and medical benefits. It is essential to know your rights under Virginia worker’s comp law. Seek the legal representation of an experienced workers comp lawyer in Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads if you are uncertain of what those rights are.
If you are injured on the job and you case is accepted, your employer’s insurance company may compensate you for various costs, including:
- Lost income due to time away from work
- Medical bills
- Related future medical care
The above are standard areas of reimbursement are covered under the workers compensation system in Virginia. However, many injured workers are very intimidated by the daunting and complicated work comp system in Virginia. This confusion leads to uncertainty to whether or not they are getting the benefits owed to them by law. The sad part is many employers and the workers compensation insurance companies who represent them are very familiar with the laws and very few injured workers are, leaving injured workers to fall victim to tactics that could be considered less than honest by insurance companies.
Contact a lawyer you can trust to navigate through the workers compensation system to get you the most benefits and what you deserve.
Paying for necessary medical treatment you need following a car accident can be a complicated process. If you’ve recently been in an auto accident in Virginia Beach or at anywhere else in the Hampton Roads, you need to understand the role your health insurance may play in paying for your treatment and care.
When you are in a car accident, the medical bills incurred are a part of the damages you are entitled to in your case. You should always use available health insurance to pay for the bills before any personal injury settlement. The reason for this is so you don’t have to use your settlement money to pay for the medical bills.
Your health insurance should always be filed to pay for medical bills. If you have medical expense coverage under your auto insurance policy, you should be collecting that as well. Finally, submit all bills to Medicare or Medicaid to pay for bills incurred as a result of a car accident. You will receive a larger settlement if the medical bills have already been paid.
To better understand the process and get assistance with the medical bills associated with your accident, contact Breit Law!
This article from American Psychological Association caught my attention and was a very interesting read!! http://www.apa.org/news/press/releases/2003/12/accidents-ptsd.aspx
I was scrolling through the news during my morning reading and came across this article which I needed to share. The information in this article is very disturbing. **This sentence from the article shocked me** The National Safety Council said that fatalities were up 9% in just the first half of 2016!! 9% may not seem like a large number but for one quarter of the year that IS a large number. Considering that percentage was referencing accidents and lives is horrible. Everyone, PLEASE pay attention to the road and your surroundings. Taking your eyes off the road for one second is a second too long. Be safe out there!! http://money.cnn.com/2016/08/31/technology/traffic-deaths-roads/index.html
