What Should Medical Malpractice Victims Look for in an Oklahoma City, OK, Medical Malpractice Attorney?
JJS offers victims of medical malpractice decades of experience in delivering historic justice for people who have been harmed in catastrophic medical injury cases. Whether the malpractice is a result of negligence, recklessness, or outright misconduct on the part of the providers, these cases are not easy on the plaintiffs, and they are rarely resolved quickly. This is why victims need to feel confident that they will receive personal attention and long-term support from their legal team.
For over 40 years, JJS has used its legal and medical knowledge to advocate for injured clients, beginning with a thorough investigation of the circumstances of each case. Our network of trusted allies is crucial in the discovery phase, and JJS enlists leading industry experts to review and examine clients’ injuries and build strong cases on their behalf.
- Investigating the evidence. JJS’ malpractice team uses our medical knowledge and investigative resources to process what the evidence shows, as well as what additional evidence is needed to demonstrate the full extent of the injury. This means medical malpractice victims have the opportunity to seek to recover damages for their injuries along with answers about what happened to them. In previous cases, JJS’ investigations led to discovering evidence and issues other attorneys missed, resulting in even stronger cases and greater damages.
- Calculating the damages. Experienced medical malpractice teams like JJS have a deep understanding of the full implications of the medical and financial needs of those who have been injured by medical negligence. While building a case, JJS uses a variety of invaluable resources, such as our in-house medical experts.
However crucial experience and knowledge are, those alone are not enough to successfully resolve the toughest cases in clients' favor. When it comes to the pursuit of fair compensation for damages, law firms need to have the resources to last the duration of the fight, no matter how long it takes. Because major malpractice cases can take years to resolve, inexperienced or underfunded malpractice firms often encourage settlements that are unfairly low early on because their team is not equipped to take these cases to trial 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 Oklahoma City, OK, by persisting in our pursuit of damages for clients’ often debilitating injuries. These injuries can be extensive and difficult for an inexperienced legal team to calculate completely without skillful medical attention and an awareness of the value the law places on certain areas.
- Medical expenses. Most serious malpractice injuries will result in a lifetime of medical care needs, including adaptive equipment, ongoing treatments, and caregiver assistance—in addition to bills for inpatient care, surgeries, medication, and rehabilitative care that have likely already been piling up. Many victims of malpractice seek to recover financial compensation for their past, ongoing, and even future expenses that they would never have been responsible for if not for being injured.
- Lost wages and earning capacity. Many victims of catastrophic malpractice cases, such as delayed C-section birth injuries, will never earn a living. Even if injured persons are working adults at the time of injury, they may not be able to return to work. If they are able, it often is in a limited capacity, especially in cases of brain injury. Medical malpractice suits can seek to recover financial compensation for an individual’s actual lost wages 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. Filing a lawsuit when someone has been harmed by medical malpractice can also provide a way for injured people to recover damages for what are considered non-economic losses. This includes their pain and suffering, reduced quality of life, and emotional distress.
