What Should People Who Have Been Injured Look for in a Philadelphia, PA, Medical Malpractice Attorney?
Medical malpractice cases involving severe injury are not easy, and they are not quickly resolved. When selecting a medical malpractice law firm to represent victims in these cases, clients will need to consider the level of experience and support they will get from their attorneys.
- Investigating the evidence: To provide the strongest representation for victims of catastrophic medical malpractice, we thoroughly investigate the facts of victims’ injuries, considering evidence we discover through patients’ medical records, witness interviews, and laboratory results.
- Calculating the costs: Lawyers who represent victims injured by medical practitioners must also understand the scope of patients’ current and future financial needs when it comes to their medical care. Our team also includes a network of trusted medical experts with the knowledge and experience needed to understand such severe injuries.
Unlike JJS, inexperienced, underfunded firms often encourage their clients to take to unfairly low settlements in the early stages of the lawsuit because they are not financially equipped to take these cases to trial on a contingency basis.
How Can Janet, Janet & Suggs Help Victims of Medical Malpractice?
JJS helps survivors of serious medical malpractice in Philadelphia, PA, by working to recover damages for their injuries, and when it comes to significant injury cases, these damages can be extensive. JJS can work to help you recover:
- Medical expenses. The medical bills that pile on to victims of malpractice can include inpatient treatment, surgeries, emergency room visits, medication, and medical devices, rehabilitative care, and much more. The truth is most serious injuries will result in a lifetime of medical care needs, including not only ongoing medical treatment but also adaptive equipment and supportive care.
- Lost wages and earning capacity. Medical malpractice claims can seek compensation for both the actual amount of any lost wages as well as calculate potential future wages that will be lost as a result of victims’ reduced or eliminated earning capacity.
- Non-economic losses. Injured people also have a right to seek damages for their non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering, reduced quality of life, and emotional distress. JJS has the experience to calculate and prove the immense value of these non-economic damages when calculating the amount of fair compensation.
