5 Reasons it Can Be a Challenge to Prove Negligence in Medical Malpractice Cases

If you are injured as a result of a defective medical product, then you may have grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the manufacturer of the product. However, these medical malpractice cases can be notoriously hard to prove – for five main reasons. The good news is that when you work with an experienced personal injury attorney, we can maximize the chances of you getting the compensation you deserve.

  1. The Evidence Involved is Complex
  2. The fact of the matter is that the evidence involved in a medical malpractice is almost always extremely complex and scientific in nature. The victim of the injury is very unlikely to the training and background necessary to fully understand the facts without the help of a medical professional. In fact, this is one of the reasons to work with The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker – we have access to the medical experts who can make sense of your case.

  3. It Can Be Difficult to Find Expert Witnesses
  4. Many medical professionals want to stick together and will not speak publicly against another provider even when they know said provider made a mistake that led to an injury. The good news is that at The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker we have relationships with qualified, experienced medical experts who are not afraid to tell the truth.

  5. Litigation Can Be Costly
  6. Expenses in any personal injury case can be costly but this is even more true when it comes to cases involving medical malpractice. The good news here is that you are not responsible for paying this upfront. If your case has merit and a personal injury attorney takes it on, we will cover the costs of litigation. You may for them only when we win your case – and if we do not win your case then you do not pay us anything at all.

  7. It Can Be Hard to Convince Jurors
  8. Studies have shown that jurors often give the benefit of the doubt to doctors. They can be reluctant to side with the injured party unless they see that the mistake was purposeful and obvious. This is why you need a strong attorney who can show them why the medical provider is at fault.

  9. It Can Be a Challenge to Prove the Injuries Are Related to the Defective Product
  10. It is not enough to prove that you used a defective medical product. It is not enough to prove that you were injured. You must prove that your injuries were the direct result of said defective medical product. For an inexperienced attorney, this can be an impossible hurdle to get over.

At The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker we know which cases are worth taking on the expense and which are not. To find out which category your injury falls into, contact us at 800-333-0000 for a free legal consultation.
