Injured By Medical Malpractice? Don't Wait to Call a Lawyer

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.
