How Do I Prove My Doctor is Liable for Medical Malpractice?

Getting a Second Opinion

Golden Balance Medical malpractice cases are some of the most difficult cases to prove. When suing a professional, in most instances you are required to put on an expert in the same field as your doctor. This should be someone who is preeminently trained and has experience in the procedure if it involves surgery, for instance, to review the case, and to render an opinion as to whether or not there was malpractice and more importantly, why there was malpractice.

The Court's Decicion

The court will look at the medical records, listen to the testimony of the expert witnesses who testify, will certainly listen and take into evidence with respect to the clients and the patients and the family members, and then decide based on all the evidence presented whether or not the doctor in question committed malpractice.

Seek Legal Counsel

The main thing to remember is that medical malpractice cases are difficult to prove so if you suspect that a doctor has committed malpractice that has resulted in injury to your loved one, you should contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney who can review your case and let you know if the case has merit. If it does, he then will gather all the pertinent medical records and retain the appropriate experts and consultants that will be required to prove your case in a court of law.

Client Reviews
My experience with Attorney Brad Corsiglia during my recent medical malpractice case was nothing short of amazing given the very stressful circumstances. I was fortunate to find Brad highly recommended from a mutual contact and from the very beginning of the process, Brad was truly engaged and knowledgeable in understanding my case and providing input on what avenues were available to me.
