Complex Claims Require Experience
All medical care providers, including doctors, nurses, hospitals and pharmacists, have a responsibility to provide a certain level of care and treatment for their patients that is recognized by the profession. Care below that standard, because of a failure on the part of the care provider or because of the choice of improper treatment for a condition, is considered negligence. If you believe that your medical care provider was negligent, you may have the basis for a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Medical mistakes are often traumatic, and made more so by the difficulty of understanding the facts surrounding the injury – finding out what happened is the first concern of most malpractice victims. Sadly, one of the only certain ways of discovering the truth is to file a lawsuit – hospitals, nurses and doctors are trained NOT to share compromising information with a patient.* To learn the “what and why” typically requires litigation.
Pursuing a medical malpractice case is a significant personal and financial decision – you will invest about two years in the process until your case is ready for settlement or trial. And though personal matters become public in any personal injury lawsuit, it is particularly true for medical malpractice victims – you will be forced to share the most intimate details of your daily life with strangers, many of whom are openly hostile. Choose a lawyer with whom you are comfortable and who is experienced in protecting medical malpractice victims from further harassment.
