Preparing to Meet with Your Personal Injury Attorney

Before meeting with your attorney, it is wise to prepare information relating to your case. This checklist provides different types of information you may be asked to bring to an initial meeting with your personal injury attorney.

What to Expect in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

To have a personal injury claim, you (or a loved one) must have been injured due to the negligence of another. Injuries are often physical in nature, but they do not have to be; some injuries are emotional. The type and cause of injury may vary greatly depending on the circumstances of your case. In such a claim, the plaintiff (injured person) must determine who is responsible for the injuries suffered, establish that person’s negligence and show the court the type and amount of losses incurred in order to be awarded compensation for injuries.

Surgical Error Lawyers

We rely on medical and surgical professionals to help us get better from any ailments we may be suffering from. When errors and malpractice occur, it can make a bad situation that much worse. At our law firm, our surgical error attorneys help hold doctors and surgeons accountable for medical negligence. We can help you get the compensation that you need in order to move forward with your life.

If you or a loved one has suffered a surgical injury, it is important to seek legal representation. Contact our personal injury lawyers to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your situation.

Wrong Site Surgery Errors

Some types of surgery errors are so obvious that there can be no reasonable argument opposing fair compensation for the victim. For example, when surgery is performed on the wrong side or wrong site on the body, such as an operation on the wrong breast, wrong testicle, wrong kidney, wrong eye, wrong ear, or wrong limb the result can be devastating. A person may not lose only the bad breast or kidney, but also the good one. Our medical malpractice attorneys will work hard to account for the full amount of loss and damages.

Foreign Objects

Occasionally, foreign objects may be left in and sewn into the body during surgery. A patient may experience pain due to a cutting instrument, sponge or a clamp that is left in the body. The lawyers at our firm have extensive experience handling these obvious types of medical malpractice claims. We also represent clients in more controversial or subtle error cases which require us to go to court.

In fact, we consider it one of our law firm’s outstanding characteristics that we do not just say that we prepare every case as if it were going to trial — we really do. And we very often do go to court.

Operating Room Error Attorneys

We expect that a surgical team will follow the accepted standard of practice when it comes to performing surgical procedures. Unfortunately, this does not always happen, and when negligent errors occur, the results can be disastrous. At our law firm, our operating room error lawyers provide experienced representation for injured victims. We will work hard to help you get the compensation you need to move forward with your life.
