Doctors make mistakes – we all know that.
But when physicians and other healthcare providers violate their oath to “first, do no harm,” then victims who lose their lives or good health deserve the full measure of justice that our legal system promises.
Few cases are more emotionally-charged than those of medical malpractice and healthcare negligence. It is easy to see why. Victims of negligent physicians, nurses and other healthcare providers have had their lives destroyed or severely damaged by the very people they trusted for protection.
When you understand the complexity of the litigation process, it is easy to see why medical malpractice cases are among the most difficult to pursue. Our medical malpractice lawyers must marshal an enormous array of strategic skill and solid evidence, bolstered by unshakable testimony from expert witnesses. They must explain complicated and confusing medical issues to untrained judges and jurors. In the end, they must prove that a healthcare provider deviated from the acceptable standard of care required by the medical profession — and that’s a large order.
Not every attorney or law firm has the skill and experience to meet this burden of proof. Not every medical malpractice lawyer has the financial ability to keep pace with the resources of health care providers and their insurance companies. Not every attorney or law firm is driven by its passion for justice, or is backed by a solid track record and a national reputation.
