Medical Malpractice cases are some of the most complex, expensive, and time-consuming cases to pursue. They include lawsuits against doctors, nurse practitioners, paramedics, hospitals, nurses, nursing homes, etc. They also can include elder care claims and claims for injuries to infants. In order to collect damages from a medical malpractice lawsuit, you must prove that the medical practitioners fell below the standard of care in the community for the type of care provided. This requires that you have expert testimony to show medical negligence.
Because of the complexity of these cases, early investigation is critical. Obtaining complete sets of medical records and having them reviewed by reliable and knowledgeable experts takes time. It is not always possible to identify all of the people or organizations responsible for injuries without consulting experts, so the more time we have organize and investigate claims, the better. For example, if you check in to a hospital for surgery and something goes wrong, you may well file suit against the hospital, your surgeon, your anesthesiologist, the nurses, etc. At times, the people or organizations that provided care to you, including nurses, are not employed by the hospital!
