    Personal Injury Lawyer

    Personal Injury LawyerIf you are suffering from injuries after a hospital stay or after what you believed was a “routine procedure”, it may be time to start thinking about filing a medical malpractice claim. At this point in your thought process, your head may be swimming with so many thoughts and questions: 

    • Am I injured enough to win a personal injury claim? 
    • Did malpractice truly occur or was it an understandable accident? 
    • Will I have the evidence necessary for filing a claim? 
    • Will I need to work with a lawyer or can I file a claim on my own? 

    These are just a few of the questions you may have and it can be extremely difficult to file your claim if you are still actively recovering from the injuries you sustained at the hands of a medical professional. 

    Will a lawyer help you with your claim? 

    At this point, you may be deciding that filing a claim is the best move for you. Especially if your injuries are clear, you may think the best course of action is to begin the process. However, working with a lawyer may still be a big question mark. For a typical personal injury case, you are attempting to show that the other party (the defendant) acted in a way that was negligent and caused you to become injured. These injuries led to damages. With medical malpractice, there are more steps that must be taken and you will likely be dealing with a hospital or medical facility that has very deep pockets and access to very good attorneys. 

    When this is the case, it is wise to arm yourself with a lawyer, like a personal injury lawyer from a law firm like Barry P. Goldberg. They can help establish that the medical provider in your claim owed you a specific duty of care that goes above and beyond the typical relationship that people have with one another. They can help bolster your claim with things like medical experts and the ability to gather the evidence you may not have known you needed. They will also know if you are being offered a settlement that is fair to the types of injuries you have sustained, if you should reject the offer, or if you should move forward in court. 

    With medical malpractice claims, you do not want to take the chance that you will be stuck with long-term or permanent injuries without the compensation you need. Instead, reach out to a local law firm today to see how a lawyer you can trust will help you with your case.
