I Think I Have A Medical Malpractice Case–Now What?

Posted by Frank Spector | Dec 11, 2011 | 0 Comments

This is a common question we get a  lot.  Typically, our clients have never been involved in a lawsuit before.  So when you need help with a legal question about a potential medical malpractice case, here is some information that I hope is useful.

What does medical malpractice mean?

Really, medical malpractice should be called medical negligence because that's what it is. Malpractice does not mean that the doctor or hospital did anything on purpose. It means that a doctor or hospital did not not meet the minimum standards of the profession in treating the patient?

How does a lawyer prove medical malpractice?

After obtaining the medical records, a medical expert doctor is consulted.  Such an expert is needed to testify in court that medical malpractice did happen.  At our firm, we have medical experts across the United States in virtually every specialty of medicine.

How long does a lawsuit take?

Each case is different but we try to move a case along as quickly as possible.  Our recent track record is 18-24 months.  The reason a case can take this much time is that the court rules give each side lots of time to prepare.  A significant amount of work has to be done in a case as involved as medical malpractice.

Do all lawyers do medical malpractice?

No. There are many areas of the law and not all lawyers handle medical malpractice cases. At Frank Spector Law we concentrate  our practice in this area as well as in auto and truck accidents.
