Investigating Causes of Medical Malpractice
A thorough investigation of the circumstances leading up to an injury is the first step in the legal process. First, our attorney will need you to provide documentation of your medical history and will take your statement about the incident. Once we have a clear understanding of the facts and legal liability , we can advise you on the best plan of action.
Before filing a claim, you must also weigh the costs compared to the potential compensation. If the incident was relatively minor in terms of lasting damages or medical bills, going through a full litigation process could end up costing more than the defendant has to pay.
When determining what kind of compensation is appropriate, we will assess your losses. Some considerations are:
- Lost wages, both current and long-term
- Compromised ability to make a living
- Pain and suffering (physical, mental, and emotional)
- Costs of ongoing medical care
- Punitive damages for willful negligence
Regardless of the circumstances, we can strategically manage your case so that you are compensated fairly. We know that personal injuries are difficult enough without the stress of dealing with insurance companies and legal procedures. We will do everything we can to help you achieve the best possible outcome.
Working with Insurance Companies
Dealing with insurance companies when it comes to legal matters can be a lengthy and complicated process. Medical practitioners and medical establishments are required by law to carry liability insurance. Generally, you will have to file separate suits against a medical practitioner and the organization they work for.
Working with a knowledgeable attorney who understands this branch of litigation is especially beneficial.
There is often a lapse in the time this takes, but companies require detailed documentation and clear proof of causation before considering a claim. They may use delay tactics, which means that a case could take much longer to settle. This can make working with a knowledgeable attorney who understands this branch of litigation especially beneficial when navigating complex insurance policies and protecting yourself against counter suits.
