The Process Of A Medical Malpractice Case
In missed or delayed diagnosis cases, you need to show factual evidence and expert medical testimony that your doctor, nurse, hospital or clinic made an error in judgment, departed from the standard of care and caused you to suffer a significant injury. Studies have shown that juries are very deferential to doctors. We recognize this and work to develop a truly compelling case with substantial factual evidence and supporting expert witness testimony and exhibits.
We will examine your medical records, consult with the appropriate experts and develop the clearest picture of what happened, who’s responsible and why. Then our firm will send a demand package to the negligent parties and their insurance carriers. If they are willing to negotiate, we may be able to resolve the case without going to trial. If not, we will pursue compensation in the courtroom. Our firm has the trial skill and experience to zealously advocate for you at trial.
What Caused Your Injuries?
When you suffer harm due to a delayed or missed diagnosis, it may be because of issues such as:
- Physician inexperience
- Failure to order tests or failure to interpret them correctly
- Failure to follow up with you
These types of errors may lead to the progression of your illness, sometimes to the point that treatment is no longer an option. You deserve compensation and justice; we will work hard to see that you get it.
