How The Colorado Candor Act Helps Victims Of Medical Malpractice

If you or a loved one suffered harm as a result of medical negligence, you deserve compensation. You shouldn’t have to shoulder the financial burden of injuries or losses that could have been avoided had your provider acted competently. A recent law, known as the Colorado Candor Act, gives people in your situation a better shot at getting a favorable settlement. The act allows medical malpractice victims and providers to negotiate for fair compensation outside of the court system.

Before The Candor Act: An Uphill Climb To Compensation

Before the law was passed in 2019, medical providers were required by law to report all negligence-related settlements and verdicts to the state licensing board. This meant that a settlement could impact their professional license and livelihood. As a result, many medical professionals were reluctant to agree to reasonable settlements, which meant that victims faced an uphill climb to fight for the compensation they deserved.

How The Candor Act Changed Things

The Candor Act encourages medical professionals to own their mistakes and have honest discussions with patients when something went wrong. It also allows them to offer compensation to patients without having to report it to the state licensing board. The result is that medical providers who were negligent now have the ability to make things right without putting their careers on the line.

What The Candor Act Could Mean For You

If your provider was negligent, and you suffered harm as a result, the Candor Act makes it more likely that you can recover swift, reasonable compensation without having to go to court. However, it’s important to work with a skilled lawyer who understands the nuances of medical malpractice. Our team can help you pursue a settlement that is adequate and just for your situation. If settlement negotiations fail, we also have the experience to fight for you in court.
