3 Ways a Lawyer Can Help After Medical Malpractice

by Staff Blogger | January 31st, 2019

Getting injured or developing health complications due to a medical professional’s negligence is a devastating experience. You trust your doctors, surgeons, and other providers to do everything in their power to help you recover from your injury or illness, but all it takes is one mistake to put your health and even your life at risk.

At Skolrood Law Firm, our Roanoke medical malpractice attorneys fight for the rights of people who were injured by healthcare providers. We know that victims often face uphill battles when it comes to getting compensation for their medical bills and lost wages. That’s because hospitals and healthcare facilities are reluctant to admit fault for any health problems that victims suffer.

When people who were harmed by medical professionals file claims, they often experience significant resistance. Their providers may deny responsibility, or their health problems may be attributed to other conditions or previous injuries. And even if the hospital or healthcare facility assumes liability, victims may receive small settlement offers that aren’t enough to cover their injury or illness-related expenses.

When you hire our legal team after medical malpractice, it’s our goal to help you in the following ways:

  1. We’ll collect evidence that indicates your healthcare provider was negligent.
  2. We’ll collect evidence that shows your health problems are due to your provider’s negligence.
  3. We’ll calculate how much money you’re owed and fight to help you get it.

You deserve full compensation for what you’ve experienced, and it’s our goal to help you get every penny. Call today for a free consultation.
