Tens of thousands of medical malpractice claims are filed each year in the United States.

A medical malpractice claim begins with an investigation into whether negligence or wrongdoing caused injury to a patient. If evidence indicates that a healthcare provider deviated from the accepted standards of care, resulting in harm, they may be held liable for damages. In many cases, a settlement can be negotiated prior to trial.
Without the help of an experienced medical malpractice lawyer, it may be extremely difficult to properly investigate and prove your case. It can be even more difficult to obtain full and fair compensation for your injuries.
During negotiations, an attorney can argue for you to receive compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, and more. They can fight to help ensure that you receive the highest possible settlement in your case while following all legal requirements, including filing and statutory deadlines.
In order to prove your case, an attorney may need to subpoena documents and take depositions from witnesses to the act or omission that caused you harm. Medical malpractice claims are often complicated, requiring expert testimony to show what the standards of care are in the industry.
Medical malpractice claims may include:
Because no two medical malpractice cases are the same, it is important to retain legal counsel as early in the process as possible.
Studies show that individuals represented by an attorney tend to receive larger settlements than those without representation. An attorney can help ensure that you do not settle your case for less than it is worth. They will fight for you and your family, working hard to hold negligent parties accountable for their wrongdoing.
If you do suspect that you were the victim of medical malpractice, there are several things that you can do to protect your right to recovery. You should always keep all medical records related to the incident that caused you harm. You should also ensure that you are not making your condition worse by inaction or lack of treatment.
As soon as you are able, you need to contact an attorney to discuss your case. Waiting too long may result in your claim being denied. Hiring an attorney early in the process can help you obtain the largest recovery possible for your injuries.
