Medical malpractice cases typically hinge on whether or not the doctor or health care provider deviated from the accepted medical “standard of care.” In real terms that means answering the question: Did they do something that similar doctors or health care providers would not have done under similar circumstances?
Although medical malpractice resulting in a permanent or fatal injury is rare in comparison to the number of times health care providers “get it right” each day — it does happen.
Unfortunately, industry lobbyists and insurers have made it very difficult for people who’ve been seriously harmed by a doctor’s mistake or surgeon’s error to recover what’s fair. In these cases, we can help.
Success with anything in life rarely happens unless you prepare to be successful first.
In our experience, this means investing time, energy and resources during the pre-litigation stages of the case — identifying appropriate medical experts, hiring forensic specialists, reviewing medical records, using technology to create state-of-the-art courtroom presentations or whatever else it takes to build a clear and compelling argument.
