The last thing that you want to happen when you walk into an operating room or doctor’s office is to have the doctor or the medical professionals in charge of your procedure make a life-threatening mistake due to negligence. If this happens in your hospital or doctor’s office, then you will want the best medical malpractice attorney in Dearborn to handle your negligence case.
A medical malpractice lawsuit is very complex, and a lot can go wrong if the details are not recorded and also if the facts of the cases are not revealed and presented to the courts. Unfortunately, the insurance company representatives are not on the patient’s side when there might be a discussion of millions of dollars in compensation due to the patient’s injuries. The insurance company has a strategic plan already in place that will push for an early settlement and reduce the amount of payout. The best attorneys will understand this and advise you to not take the first offer.
In the State of Michigan, there is the expectation that doctors and other professional medical practitioners will provide all patients with a level of care that is equal to the standard of care that most other professionals would provide under the same circumstances. If there is a failure on the part of the medical professional to provide this level of care either through incompetence, lack of training, or the malfunctioning of medical devices or equipment then there can be a case for a claim of negligence. A medical malpractice lawsuit is the result of this injury to a patient due to negligence.
A patient who is injured may suffer long-term debilitating illnesses or physical duress, and there can be an associated claim of pain and suffering due to their initial expectation of being cured, sustaining the injury, and then having to cope with more pain, lost wages and even the event of death. In any of these situations, the patient wants the best representation possible.
The best attorneys who handle medical malpractice cases usually have a background in medicine as well as law. This combination of experience and expertise gives the attorney an added edge over the defendants who usually try to ignore or not admit to the negligence in the case. Eileen Kroll is a registered nurse as well as an attorney for Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P. C. She has the knowledge and experience to meet these qualifications.
The best attorneys will also maintain detailed and strict records of all of the testimony brought to the discovery phase of the investigation, and they will make sure that they employ only the most qualified expert witnesses when developing the arguments on your behalf. Although most attorneys will claim that they have this kind of working relationship with their clients, in the end, the results of the litigation and the compassion shown to their clients is the major factor in proving excellence.
