Medical malpractice attorneys focus on major cases. We know medical mistakes often have devastating effects on you and your family. Unfortunately, it is our society’s third biggest cause of catastrophic injury and death.
Medical Malpractice Attorneys Review Major Medical Mistakes
When medical malpractice attorneys use say “malpractice” we are referring to negligence. Accordingly, simply enduring a bad result does not mean a doctor commits malpractice. Rather, a claim exists only when harm results from a health professional’s a breach of an applicable standard of care.
Especially relevant, we often consult with patients who believe unsuccessful results warrant an injury claim. However, we often find patients are unhappy with their doctor’s poor bedside manner.
So, while you may want to sue your doctor for bad results or a bad attitude, your hope may not go very far. Instead, please note experienced medical medical malpractice attorneys look at your injuries or damages first. In addition, we look at your care and possible errors.
Accordingly, seasoned medical malpractice attorneys only pursue catastrophic injury and death claims against a doctor, nurse, hospital, or other medical professionals.
Medical Malpractice Attorneys Submit Records to Medical Experts
After we pay for and retrieve all your relevant medical and hospital records, as your medical malpractice attorneys we review. Subsequently, we discuss our findings and opinions with you. Moreover, if we see grounds for a claim, then we’ll send your records to a medical expert for review.
Medical experts are very expensive. So, we only engage expert review if your records show possible serious medical errors. Now, this expert determines whether or not your doctor breached the standard of care. This costs a lot of money, and represents a significant investment of time and money by medical malpractice attorneys.
If our expert believes there is a standard of care breach, then this expert prepares an affidavit verifying medical errors under oath. Especially relevant, without this affidavit, your claim cannot proceed.
Medical Malpractice Attorneys Fight Your Case in Litigation
In Florida, after an your medical malpractice attorneys have an expert affidavit, we enter a 90-day pre-lawsuit period. Especially relevant, this ninety day breathing room period is mandatory and no lawsuit may be filed until it is over. Moreover, during this time your doctor or hospital either accepts liability or denies liability. As experienced medical malpractice attorneys know, liability denials are most common.
Upon filing your lawsuit, we are in litigation. This process includes many steps over roughly two years. For example, you must answer written questions under oath. Moreover, there is deposition testimony from all parties and relevant witnesses. In addition, experts provide testimony.
While all this is happening, your medical malpractice attorneys must file and respond to motions. Moreover, we must prepare all trial materials and exhibits. Finally, your case goes to trial unless it settles.
You and your medical malpractice attorneys then go to trial. Jury selection usually lasts several days, and you trial may last from one week to one month or more, depending on the number of witnesses. Hopefully, victory is our result.
