What Issues Can Arise During a Medical Malpractice Case?

by The Beasley Firm  |  July 30, 2018  |  

The legal system can be one of the more complicated things to navigate, regardless is someone suffered an injury due to someone else’s negligence or not. In any case, there are many things to consider when it comes to medical malpractice cases.

Unfortunately, there are a number of issues that may come up, making it difficult for you during the case. Overcoming these obstacles may not seem possible, but with the right attorney on your side, it’s something that can be done.

The Medical Facility’s Legal Team

You have to remember that the medical facility has a large legal team that is experienced when it comes to defending their company. They have done this before and they know how to try and turn liability against a victim.

You need to have someone on your side who knows how to combat the legal team and work with you to present the evidence necessary to help you move forward.

Understanding Liability

Proving liability means showing four main aspects. These include:

  • Showing the doctor had a duty of care owed to the patient
  • Showing the doctor breached that duty of care with an act of negligence
  • Showing the breach led to a mistake
  • Showing the mistake resulted in an injury or worsened condition

Proving liability is necessary when seeking legal action against a medical facility and doing so on your own can present a number of difficulties.

You need to have someone on your side who understands the most efficient ways to seek compensation and justice after medical malpractice. It’s difficult to go through these types of situations alone, especially when the defendant is trying to devalue your case.

Statute of Limitations

There are specific deadlines that must be met in order for an injured individual to take legal action. Speak with a lawyer to find out exactly how long you have after the accident to seek compensation so you don’t miss out on your opportunity to do so.
