Medical Malpractice Claims: Frequently Asked Questions
  • What is medical malpractice?

    Medical malpractice refers to a type of case that involves some sort of injury, illness, or loss suffered by a patient due to the negligence or medical error committed by a medical professional. Medical malpractice can occur when a healthcare provider fails to provide the proper treatment or fails to adhere to the proper standard of care. Examples may include failure to diagnose, surgical error, birthing injury, or medication error.

  • How do I know if my case is valid?

    It is important to note that medical malpractice cannot be claimed every time a patient suffers an injury, every time a patient is unhappy with the course of treatment, or every time a doctor makes a mistake. In other words, having an unfortunate or “bad” medical experience will not always be grounds for medical malpractice claims. Speaking with an attorney can help determine if you have grounds to take action and have a claim worth pursuing.

  • Will my case go to trial?

    In most cases, our skilled attorneys are able to resolve cases out of court by way of negotiation or settlement. Though we strive to keep your matter out of public view, we always prepare every case for trial. This means we will be prepared to escalate your case through litigation in the pursuit of the best possible outcome for you.

  • How long will my case take?

    Though every case is unique and can bring its own set of obstacles and challenges, we strive to resolve cases as quick as possible. Some cases can take as long as three years to complete, some can be longer. Choosing the right attorney can help influence the time it will take for your case to resolve favorably.
