What factors do you consider in accepting a medical malpractice case?Return to FAQ Videos
When we are considering whether or not to accept a medical malpractice case, the main thing we are looking at is: Can we obtain a successful outcome for you? That’s what’s most important. There are a number of factors that play a part in that decision. The first factor is: Was there actually medical negligence? Did the doctor or healthcare provider do something wrong and can we prove that? The next thing we have to consider is something called causation. If there was medical negligence did the medical negligence cause the injury that you suffered? Finally, we have to look closely at the damages. What is the extent of the injury and what are the economic and non-economic damages that you are going to face in the future? In the end, the most important thing is that we get a recovery for you. There’s no point in trying to take a medical malpractice case that doesn’t end in a monetary recovery that will take care of the losses that you’ve suffered. So, we also look carefully at the insurance company – the money that might be available to cover your losses in the future. Because, in the end, that’s the most important thing for us.
