What Goes Into A Medical Malpractice Claim?

By Jonathan Roven on February 14, 2019 - Comments off

A case of medical malpractice is duly actionable in the court of law. However, the proceedings require a qualified attorney who can appraise the merits of the case and advice you accordingly.

Healthcare professionals are duty bound to treat and nurse us back to good health. Most times, they perform their duties unflinchingly and can even manage to pull us from the clutches of death!

However, at times things do go wrong and are beyond the control of doctors and nurses who are human beings after all. But what if the person treating you has behaved carelessly or even intentionally shirked his duty and caused you harm?

Indeed, medical negligence such as a wrong diagnosis, improper treatment or even lack of necessary follow-up and care is considered a legal wrong. The healthcare professional becomes liable to pay damages for the injury, harm, loss and suffering.

However, many loopholes can arise in the legal proceedings. For instance, it is essential that an explicit doctor-patient relationship should exist between the defendant and plaintiff. Going further, there are specific conditions that determine whether the medical negligence is admissible or not.

This is why you need skilled and experienced medical malpractice lawyers in Los Angeles, California like Kahn Roven LLP (www.kahnroven.com). Your attorney will first determine the nature of your interaction with the healthcare professional before considering the features of the misconduct or neglect. You will gain valuable insight into whether the medical error has actually violated the normal standards of care and also if it truly caused an injury, damage or other harm.

Not only this, your attorney will evaluate the available evidence and other characteristics of the situation to establish the monetary value of the case vis-à-vis the cost of legal proceedings. Accordingly, he or she will recommend whether it makes sense to file a medical malpractice claim or not. You will get a fair idea of the chances of recovery as well.

Hence, you are in the best position to decide how to proceed…..
