There is no easy way to definitively determine whether a case involving medical malpractice is one that will produce a high damage award or one that does not help to even cover out of pocket medical expenses. It is most difficult to make this assessment because evaluating a medical malpractice claim is done on a case by case basis. Each situation has its own specific facts which can help, or hurt, a victim’s case. This makes it extremely important to discuss your legal options with an experienced attorney who is well-equipped to analyze your specific circumstances as they pertain to filing a medical malpractice lawsuit.
The fact is there are many expenses involved in litigating a medical malpractice suit, or any suit for that matter. These costs, at times, compounded with existing medical bills, can reach high limits. In addition, medical malpractice cases can take quite some time to resolve. A victim of medical malpractice should ultimately seek the assistance of legal counsel in helping to determine if their case has the viability needed to withstand the different economic possible outcomes.
An example of when a person can feel as though they have a medical malpractice claim, and the facts subsequently produce different results, is when a misdiagnosis has been given by a doctor. At first glance, this reads like an obvious case of medical malpractice; however, the reality is, there are many situations that can develop from such circumstances. If the doctor is able to remedy his misdiagnosis, and no permanent harm results from the incident, the case may or may not be capable of producing a high award at trial. On the other hand, pursuing the same doctor who misdiagnosed a patient, and allowed the misdiagnosis to continue with the victim, may prove to a jury that a significant award is warranted against that doctor. The fact remains that every medical malpractice case is different from the last.
A victim of medical malpractice has an extremely high interest in meeting with an attorney to assess their case. The attorney will review the facts of the particular case and advise a victim of multiple strategic plans of moving forward. If and when it is determined that the case costs and the amount it takes to litigate, are outweighed by what can possibly be won at trial for a victim of medical malpractice, an attorney will then help to establish liability against the medical professional.
It is very common for an attorney to seek medical experts in assisting to prove a variety of issues that may arise in a medical malpractice case. When these expert witnesses are brought on board to testify on a victim’s behalf, the effects of pursuing a lawsuit for medical malpractice can significantly help to strengthen the case. The expert medical witnesses help to demonstrate the negligence of the at-fault party was what caused the victim’s injury.
In addition to the facts addressed above regarding whether you have a good case for medical malpractice, there many are other factors that lawyers use to assess how good or bad a case is. It is clear though there are many questions which need to be answered.
