How a medical malpractice lawsuit proceeds through court

On Behalf of | Oct 1, 2014 | Medical Malpractice

All across the country, millions of people put their faith in physicians, surgeons, pharmacists and other medical professionals. While the standard of care is met for most people, there are those who suffer because of medical malpractice or negligence.

We help those who are injured and their families determine if they want to pursue compensation against the medical professional or entities responsible for their injuries or illness. After a thorough review of a potential client’s medical records, we will be upfront and honest about whether there is a medical malpractice case. If there was no error or if the patient did not suffer a significant illness or injury due to not receiving the appropriate treatment, surgery or medication, we will explain that there is no case.

However, for those who did experience a medical error due to the medical staff not meeting the standard of care, we will move forward with a medical malpractice case. We have medical experts who can determine exactly what occurred and can detail the reasons in court. Medical malpractice cases are very complex and time-consuming. There are times when negotiations are successful, and a settlement may be reached without a trial. There are many times, though, when a patient’s fair compensation may only be found by going to trial.

We urge you to visit our medical malpractice webpage to learn more about your rights when you or a loved one has suffered because of medical malpractice. Connecticut has stringent rules regarding the statutes of limitations — or how long you have to file your case. Don’t wait to seek the compensation you are rightfully due.
