If someone runs a stop sign and injures you in a
car accident, you’re advised to call a vehicle accident lawyer right away. Likewise,
if you believe you have been injured due to medical malpractice, you should
call a malpractice lawyer right away. At Kelley/Uustal, we understand
the complexities of
medical malpractice cases, and are ready to provide the skilled counsel you need.
What to Expect in Any Liability Case
After a car accident, a vehicle accident lawyer reconstructs the facts
of the case and makes a thorough determination of liability. A similar
scenario unfolds if, for example, you slip and fall in a supermarket and
need medical treatment for injuries. The same general procedures apply
with medical malpractice, but malpractice cases are more complex and require
more thorough preparation.
Why Malpractice Cases Are Different
Over the years, medical profession lobbyists have helped pass laws that
are favorable to physicians and that make pursuing a malpractice case
complicated. In Florida, there is a prescribed series of steps that a
malpractice attorney must take before even filing a malpractice lawsuit.
Many victims simply give up when faced with this complex procedure. However,
with experienced legal counsel, justice is possible after an incident
of medical malpractice.
Difficult Does Not Equal Impossible
Yes, it is difficult to successfully sue for medical malpractice. However,
that does not mean it’s impossible. Speak with a malpractice lawyer
as soon as possible after an injury you believe is the result of malpractice
and he or she will evaluate your situation and advise you if you have
a strong case.
Getting Legal Help Promptly Is the Smart Move
Just as you shouldn’t wait to contact an attorney after being injured
by another party’s careless driving, you shouldn’t wait to
seek legal advice if you believe you’re a victim of medical malpractice.
At Kelley/Uustal, we know how to evaluate your case and advise you on
the best way to proceed. The longer you wait, the more challenging it
will be to receive fair compensation for injuries caused by medical malpractice.
