Sometimes people are injured by a doctor or hospital staff whose actions in treating someone “fall below the reasonable standard of care.” These cases are difficult and expensive to pursue and sometimes a bad result simply does mean malpractice was committed. Likewise, sometimes malpractice is committed but the reasonable damages are such that pursuant of the claim is not justified because of the economic aspect of pursuing the claim.
Before a medical malpractice case can be pursued an expert must be hired and willing to sign an affidavit to the aspect of the malpractice. If no expert supports the case, it simply cannot be filed and successfully pursued.
This office handles some malpractice cases and on others I associate with only the most competent counsel that may have more experience in a particular aspect of the area of malpractice. Call us if you believe you have been a victim of medical malpractice. Kirkpatrick Law Offices are qualified to provide legal guidance in this area, as well as other related areas such as personal injury and product liability.
