When Should I Consider a Claim in Medical Malpractice?

Patients all over the world are injured every single day by medical errors. However, not every medical error is grounds for medical malpractice. Knowing whether or not you have a medical malpractice case can be difficult, so if you or someone you know has been injured or become ill due to a medical error, contact the personal injury attorneys of Finkelstein & Partners, LLP today. Our professional team of medical malpractice attorneys will be able to lead you in the right direction.

Medical malpractice cases are some of the most time consuming and expensive legal proceedings. While many of these cases are filed each day, the majority of them are found in favor of the opposing health care provider. This is due to the fact that in order for the case to stand there must be significant evidence proving that the doctor or health care provider acted negligently resulting in a patient’s injury or illness.

The degree of injury and amount of damages a patient has suffered is an extremely important deciding factor in whether or not this is a medical malpractice case. Even if malpractice occurred, with additional procedures and expenses the injured or ill patient may be able to fully recover. Unless the medical expenses associated with the case are extremely high and the period of pain and suffering exceeds one year, it may be advised that the case not go further.

For all of these reasons, if you or someone you know has been injured or become ill due to a medical error, consulting with an experienced medical malpractice attorney will be key to determining whether or not your claims qualify as medical malpractice.
