Mistakes are made in the healthcare field every day throughout the United States. Although many of these errors are minor and often overlooked, a few of these mistakes forever alter the lives of the affected patients. What would you do if you were one of those unlucky few? Would you file a malpractice claim with the hope that justice will be on your side? How do you know if your situation actually merits a settlement? Before wasting your time, energy, and money pursuing a shaky claim, let us help make sure your medical malpractice case is strong enough to pursue.
Elements of a Strong Medical Malpractice Claim
Unfortunately, a good case isn't won by desire alone. Believing that your injuries were the result of medical negligence is only the first step toward establishing a reasonable and successful claim. Thousands of malpractice claims are denied every year because claimants rush to file without realizing what they needed to secure their case. We won't let you waste your time by filing short.
With over 35 years of experience and many cases under our belt, we know what it takes to build a case against hospitals, doctors, and healthcare professionals. This is why, before you file, you should always get the guidance of an experienced lawyer. We'll make sure your claim is viable and has a good chance of succeeding. Here are just a few of the elements that can strengthen your medical malpractice lawsuit:
- Record of good health. Reports indicating that you were in good health prior to the malpractice incident will show that your current condition cannot be attributed to prior health issues.
- A severe injury. Loss of mobility, limb, or life as the direct result of medical negligence or error make the strongest cases for settlement.
- Outcome was caused by negligence. The failure of a doctor, nurse, care-provider, or hospital to properly monitor, communicate, or provide essential care was the clear cause of your outcome.
