What Should Victims Look for in a Manchester, NH, Medical Malpractice Attorney?
JJS has over four decades of malpractice legal experience, resulting in our delivery of historic justice for people who have been harmed by catastrophic medical injury. Whether the malpractice is the result of medical negligence, recklessness, or outright misconduct, these cases are not easy, and they are rarely resolved quickly. This is why victims need to be confident they will receive personal attention and long-term support from their legal team.
For over 40 years, JJS has used our legal and medical knowledge to advocate for our clients. This begins with our thorough investigation of the circumstances of each injury. In fact, JJS’ investigative process often leads to the discovery of evidence that other attorneys have missed, allowing us to craft a stronger case in our pursuit of the maximum recovery for our clients. To build these cases, our investigative process has two major components.
- Investigating the evidence. JJS’ malpractice team has the medical knowledge and investigative resources needed to understand what the evidence of injury shows, and what it doesn’t show. This means we recognize what additional evidence is needed to demonstrate the full extent of the injury in order to prove the case and maximize fair compensation.
- Calculating the damages. Experienced medical malpractice attorneys like those at JJS have a deep understanding of the full implications of the medical and financial needs of those who have been injured by a major medical error. In building a case that seeks to recover the full extent of damages, we use a variety of invaluable resources, including our in-house medical experts.
However, that’s not all. This is not an open-and-shut process, and medical malpractice law firms must have the financial resources to last the fight when it comes to the pursuit of fair compensation for damages—no matter how long it takes. Major malpractice cases can take years to resolve, and inexperienced and underfunded malpractice firms often encourage settlements that are unfairly low early on. When this happens, it is often because their team is not financially equipped to take these cases to trial or engage in lengthy negotiations on a contingency basis.
How Can Janet, Janet & Suggs Help Victims of Medical Malpractice?
JJS helps victims of serious injuries resulting from medical malpractice in Manchester, NH, by continuing to pursue damages for clients’ serious injuries, which are often extensive and difficult for an inexperienced legal team to calculate completely.
- Medical expenses. The extensive medical bills that stem from medical errors are often far beyond the scope of what injured victims and their families can reasonably handle, even if they are insured. Those who have been injured by malpractice find themselves responsible for costs of inpatient treatment, surgeries, emergency room visits, medication, medical devices, rehabilitative care, and so much more. For many, this financial burden is overwhelming and often impossible to recover from; additionally, most serious malpractice injuries will result in a lifetime of medical care needs. These needs can include adaptive equipment, ongoing treatments, and caregiver assistance. Malpractice lawsuits can recover financial compensation for past, ongoing, and even future expenses that injured patients should never have been responsible for paying in the first place.
- Lost wages and earning capacity. Many victims of catastrophic malpractice cases, such as delayed C-section birth injuries, will never be able to earn a living. Medical malpractice lawsuits can seek to recover financial compensation for an individuals’ actual lost wages, where appropriate, and even compensate victims for future wages that will be almost certainly lost as a result of their reduced or eliminated earning capacity.
- Non-economic damages. The law also allows a way for injured people to recover damages for their non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering, reduced quality of life, and emotional distress. JJS’s team has the experience to prove the immense value of these non-economic damages.
