3 Reasons Medical Malpractice Attorneys Are so Important

Law Offices of Steven Zwick Sept. 14, 2022

Oftentimes, when visiting the hospital or seeing doctors, nothing is more important than getting the medical care you need right away. Lack of medical care and improper medical care is so common that according to The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), about 225,000 people die yearly due to medical malpractice. Below are some of the many reasons you may benefit from hiring a medical malpractice and personal injury attorney.

1. They Earn You the Settlement You Deserve

If you have suffered an injury due to medical malpractice, the most important thing to consider is the settlement you will need to improve your quality of life. Sadly, many harmful effects of medical malpractice can turn into chronic conditions. For instance, you might need help due to a severe infection or advanced surgery to correct mistakes made during an operation. These are just some of the many harmful consequences caused by medical malpractice.

A personal injury attorney will fight on your behalf and ensure you get the settlement you deserve by making a strong case before a judge or jury. They can help determine how much you are entitled to based on emotional damage, suffering, and extended care to get a fair settlement.

2. They Help Filing Appropriate Paperwork

Lawsuits take time to form. There is extensive paperwork to file with the courthouse and evidence that must be filed appropriately. It is almost impossible to create a strong case with appropriate paperwork filed on your own. Instead of facing deadlines and mistakes, get the help of a personal injury attorney to file your paperwork appropriately.

3. They Help Prevent Harm to Others

If you are hurt due to medical malpractice, you might not be alone. By asking questions and interviewing others, your injury attorney might find that other patients were also harmed due to negligence on a doctor’s or nurse’s behalf. The power of a personal injury attorney can bring these other claims to light and ensure consequences for negligent providers.

Doctors and nurses make mistakes just like all humans. However, when those mistakes lead to harm or are due to negligence, a personal injury attorney can bring a strong case against them, so reach out to us today to get the settlement you deserve.
