Insurance Companies Don't Play Fair. Don't Do This Alone.

Nassau County

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

Everyone needs to see a doctor at some point in time. From well baby checks to vaccinations, doctors and other medical professionals help people begin life well and continue to stay healthy. While medical professionals offer access to vitally important resources, sometimes problems develop during the course of their services. If a doctor harms a patient, the patient may have what is known as a medical malpractice case. Medical malpractice cases must meet certain specific standards before they can be argued in a court of law. Many medical malpractice cases are highly complicated. Understanding what happened, why it happened and what legal remedies are available can be confusing. This is why many people look for Nassau County medical malpractice lawyers for help.

Understanding Terms

In order to begin the process of filing a claim, any potential plaintiff needs to know the terms they are likely to encounter before they begin. All doctors must agree to provide their patients with what is known as a standard of care. The term standard of care means that the doctors and other medical professionals acted in accordance with commonly accepted and understood medical standards. For example, a doctor who treats someone in an emergency room must adhere to all accepted medical practices and procedures. The same is true of all professionals attending the case. If the doctor was using drugs or drinking but attempted to help the patient, the doctor is not meeting this standard.

At the same time, if the doctor was intoxicated but was still able to do his job correctly, this is not medical malpractice. If the doctor made a minor mistake on the job but the patient was not harmed because of his actions, this was also not medical malpractice. There needs to be a situation where the patient has a problem because of the doctor or other medical professional’s actions.

Similarly Trained Doctor

Medical care is governed by following certain procedures. For example, a doctor is taught how to stitch up a gaping wound in a patient’s toe if they accidentally drop a knife while cutting vegetables. All doctors are taught how to close the wound, stop the bleeding and put in stitches that will hold as the patient leaves. A doctor may be facing medical malpractice allegations if they do fail to deliver such care. If the patient is left with poorly put in stitches that continue to cause pain or compromise the function of their toe, this can be a cause of medical malpractice.

Anyone planning to file a case should bear in mind that allegations are meaningless. In a court of law, it’s up to the plaintiff to prove to the courts that they have suffered such an injury. A malpractice lawyer can begin building a case on behalf of the plaintiff. There are several ways that a case of malpractice can be established to the satisfaction of the court system. A lawyer may try one or two or they use multiple techniques as the case is heard.

Working With Experts

In most cases of malpractice, the lawyers will begin by finding an expert to testify on behalf of the client. The goal is to demonstrate that the doctor or other medical professional did not meet the standards of care while attending a case. A typical expert is someone with many years of experience in the field of medicine. This may be a practicing doctor. It can also be someone who teaches medicine or has conducted many years of research in the field. The goal is to find an expert or an expert who knows the specific field of medicine and the specific injury the plaintiff claims to have suffered. The expert can testify as to what went wrong. They can also indicate to the judge or jury exactly how the medical professionals acted poorly as well as how their actions harmed the patient.

A lawyer may find a single expert who is known to have many years of experience in this field. They may also find more than one expert who can provide expertise in related fields. For example, a patient may have experienced harm during an operation because the anesthesiologist made mistakes with medications. This may have led the surgeon to make mistakes during the operation. Different experts can help with different aspects of the medical malpractice case. An effective malpractice lawyer can offer the help people need to get the relief they are entitled to by law.
