We all place trust in our healthcare professionals and require them to give us the best advice. These are the experts that know what to do when we are dealing with life and death situations. Their knowledge is what we rely on to feel better and move on with our lives.
Sometimes this advice creates severe injuries or causes the patient to die. In situations like this, your healthcare professional and their organization are required to give you the best care. This means that they don’t rush into decisions and pay attention to what they are doing. Any mistakes can be critical and lead to adverse consequences for you.
This is referred to as medical malpractice. It involves many different kinds of mistakes, including misdiagnosis, surgical errors, and not receiving the correct amount of prescription medication. All of these factors will harm your health. Situations like these are when you can file a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Medical malpractice is something that doesn’t occur a lot. But when it does, the payouts and settlements are much larger. Last year, the Health Care Stabilization Fund paid out $29.4 million for 79 cases. These settlements show that medical malpractice does happen, and when you file a lawsuit you will receive a significant settlement for lost wages, medical bills, pain, suffering, emotional distress, and punitive damages.
The success of your case will depend on the medical malpractice attorney you choose. You need someone with the particular knowledge and experience that comes from working with these cases. This gives you the advantage of having connections to other doctors, investigators, and litigators that know what they are doing. You can rely on the Palmer Law Group to handle your medical malpractice lawsuit with skill and compassion. Here are some of the benefits we provide to you.

Any time you suspect a medical error or complication is when you should contact our medical malpractice attorney. Some of the other situations include early discharge, ignoring/misreading lab results, not looking at your medical history, and not giving you the right dosage of medication.
The courts require that we must prove several things, including a duty of care, a breach of duty, and causation. All of these are necessary for our medical malpractice lawyers to win the case.
The first step is for your medical malpractice lawyer to contact the healthcare professional. We are seeking information on what happened, and this gives them a chance to fix the situation.
Most of these cases are settled out of court. The organization and professionals will negotiate with your medical malpractice attorney to create an acceptable settlement. Only 30% of these cases typically go to trial. It is easier to settle out of court so the organization and healthcare professionals can put this behind them.
The biggest settlement for these cases was $20,100,000. Your medical malpractice attorney will go over the case and help you to decide on the appropriate dollar amount to pursue.
