As a personal injury lawyer, it is my job to help injured victims prove medical malpractice. In the 33 years I have been practicing law I have worked on many types of cases.
Without question, medical malpractice cases are the most complex and are often difficult to prove. That is why it is important to choose a lawyer with experience to help you show proof that your doctor made a mistake.
We expect doctors to act a certain way, and so does the law. Doctors are required to meet what is called the “standard of care,” which means they must act the way a reasonable healthcare professional would under similar circumstances. When we prove a medical negligence claim, we must first prove that the doctor’s actions fell below the standard of care.
The law requires another doctor to verify a medical mistake occurred in order to prove medical malpractice.
To prove a medical mistake was made, it is necessary to find a physician to testify as an expert witness and explain that the doctor did not meet the standard of care. Finding a physician to do this is often difficult, since doctors generally elect to support their colleagues rather than jeopardize professional relationships.
Additionally, hiring expert witnesses to testify at trial can be very expensive. When you choose a lawyer to prove your medical malpractice claim, it is very important to hire someone with the resources necessary to fight for you. I have those resources, and as such I recently settled cases for $50 million, $42.5 million, $5.25 million, $3.5 million, and $2.1 million.
Once you are able to provide proof that the doctor did, in fact, make a mistake, you must prove that the doctor’s negligence caused damage.
When I represent an injured victim in a medical malpractice case, I have the means necessary to hire nationally-recognized experts. These experts help me to determine how much it would take to compensate my client and his or her family, so that they may lead as normal of a life as possible.
Damages for the victim of a medical mistake may include compensation for physical injuries, emotional distress, medical bills, lost wages, and lost earning capacity. Experts that may be required to prove a medical malpractice claim include: medical experts, life-care planners, economists, and many more. If I take your case, I cover the cost of all expenses. Furthermore, I work on a contingency basis, so you will not have to pay one cent to bring the claim.
If you or a loved one was a victim of medical malpractice, you have to call me right away at (800) 556-4769. Proving a medical malpractice claim is very complicated, and that is why you need to hire a lawyer who, not only has the experience necessary to fight for you, but also the resources to get you the compensation you deserve.
