At The Abelson Law Firm, our dedicated medical malpractice attorneys will schedule a free consultation in person or over the telephone. You can explain your situation, and our malpractice attorneys will help you to determine whether you might have a case. Our attorneys are experienced in medical malpractice litigation, which is a very complex and specific area of law, and our specialized knowledge can be useful in determining if you have a potential medical malpractice claim.
If our malpractice attorneys believe you may have a claim, it will be important to obtain medical records that detail your condition prior to, during and after treatment. All medical records should be reviewed as part of your malpractice claim, including details on consultations with care providers; information on medical exams and follow-ups; and complete investigations into the event that was potentially negligent. Typically, expert witnesses will need to be involved in evaluating your medical records and in proving that the doctor or medical provider who treated you was negligent.
When evaluating your case, our malpractice attorneys will also consider other outside factors to help determine what options you have. These factors can include state caps or limitations on malpractice awards; time limits for filing claims (called statutes of limitations); and the severity and lasting consequences of your injury. Every case is different, and these essential factors should be evaluated by a knowledgeable malpractice attorney in deciding how to proceed.
