How We Can Prove Medical Malpractice

by Staff Blogger | December 28th, 2017

Medical malpractice is a term that describes devastating and potentially fatal mistakes and oversights on behalf of doctors, surgeons, and other healthcare professionals that put patients in danger. But the burden of proof that indicates a healthcare worker was negligent falls on victims, and going up against big hospitals can feel intimidating.

At Skolrood Law Firm, our Roanoke medical malpractice lawyers aren’t afraid to stand up for our clients against even the biggest hospitals and insurance companies. That’s because we know how to prove malpractice occurred. We do that by:

  • Using expert witnesses – Although we’re well-versed in medical malpractice claims, we aren’t doctors. However, we can utilize expert witnesses who work in the medical field to support evidence we find that indicates malpractice occurred.
  • Linking your injury or illness to a specific time – It’s not enough to present an illness or injury and claim it happened due to provider negligence. By collecting medical records and documentation, we can leave no doubt in the insurance company’s mind that you were harmed by a healthcare professional.

Don’t feel intimidated or scared by the thought of pursuing a claim for compensation against the doctor or hospital that hurt you. They should be held accountable for their negligence, and we want to fight for the compensation you deserve. Call today for a free consultation. We’re here to help.
