Your healthcare provider has a duty to ensure that while in his or her hands, your best interests are at the forefront of his or her care.  Often times a patient may find that the negligence of their healthcare provider can be directly traced to a misdiagnosis or the cause for substantial damages.  These damages warrant compensation!  Although these cases are difficult and demanding, the lawyers at Levy Zavet PC are here to help.  Call us now for a free evaluation.

Your damages may include compensatory and punitive damages. Compensatory damages are both economic and non-economic. Economic damages include financial losses such as lost wages (sometimes called lost earning capacity), medical expenses and other care expenses. These damages may be assessed for past and future losses. Non-economic damages are assessed for the injury itself such as physical and psychological harm, such as loss of vision, loss of a limb or organ, the reduced enjoyment of life due to a disability or loss of a loved one, severe pain and emotional distress. Punitive damages are only awarded in the event of severe reckless conduct.
