What is Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice cases are tough. They are tough to prove and are fraught with pitfalls for the unwary. You need someone on your side that understands both the medicine and the law. Furthermore, you need someone on your side that knows what goes on behind closed doors – the closed doors of the hospital, clinic, emergency room, operating room, nursing floor, x-ray department or wherever the incident occurred. I am the advocate you need on your side.
I am the advocate you need on your side because I am an attorney whose practice focuses on medical malpractice. By focusing on medical malpractice I am better able to develop specialized knowledge and stay abreast of nuances in medical malpractice law. I am also able to create and foster relationships with a network of physicians and other practitioners across the nation that we will need as experts to prove your case and get you the compensation you deserve.
I am the advocate you need on your side because I am a registered nurse that has worked in many areas of virtually every hospital in Utah. I know what goes on behind the closed doors. I know the medicine and I know what does and does not get done. More importantly I know why bad things happen and even more importantly I know how to prove they happened.
There is no financial obligation on your part when I evaluate your case. There will be no requirement to pay any fee up front. All cases that I take are on a contingency basis. This means that you pay my fee out of the proceeds of any settlement (monies negotiated to be paid to you before trial) or verdict (monies paid to you as a result of a jury decision at trial). I advance the costs of preparing your case and you repay the costs of preparing the case if, and only if, we receive money from the defendant by way of settlement or verdict.
Keep in mind that a medical malpractice case may be forever prevented from being brought if the statute of limitations has expired – talk with an attorney to make sure you do not allow the statute of limitations to expire on your case.
Medical Malpractice Negligence
Medical negligence occurs when a medical professional performs their job in a way which deviates from acceptable medical standard of care. If a medical professionals negligent treatment causes undue injury to the patient, then there can be a case for medical malpractice.
