The effects of medical malpractice can be devastating for the person who was wronged and his or her family. Therefore, the amount of damages at stake may be substantial.
To be successful in bringing a medical malpractice claim or case, you must be able to prove all of the following: (1) negligence: that the medical practitioner did or did not do something a reasonably careful practitioner would have done or not done under the same circumstances; (2) causation: the practitioner’s act or omission caused injury or harm; and (3) the consequences and monetary value of the injury or harm.
Medical malpractice cases are often a battle of experts, very expensive and vigorously defended by a team of insurance defense attorneys. Therefore, we often associate other expert attorneys to assist, or to take the lead, in medical malpractice cases. If we associate another attorney, there is no additional fee for you. This way, you get the benefit of two attorneys for the price of one.
