What Should You Look for in a Medical Malpractice Attorney in Prince George's County, MD?
When serious injuries are involved, malpractice cases are not easy, and they are not quick. Insurance companies and the lawyers that represent medical professionals will often try to drag out cases to wear down patients who are already suffering. When choosing a medical malpractice law firm to represent you in your malpractice case and support you through the lengthy process, consider the level of support you get from your attorney. JJS does not wait until the settlement table or the courtroom to begin supporting our clients with the full extent of our knowledge, experience, and resources.
- What the evidence says. It is not enough to just be able to practice law in Prince George’s County. To provide the strongest representation, we thoroughly investigate the facts of your case and have the medical knowledge to truly understand the evidence of negligence we discover in patients’ medical records, witness interviews, and laboratory results.
- What your treatment costs. Lawyers who represent clients injured by medical practitioners must understand the scope of patients’ current and future financial needs when it comes to their medical care. In order to prepare a case that seeks to recover the appropriate amount in compensation, we make sure to enlist all possible resources when it comes to calculating the maximum recovery for your case.
- What it takes to fight all the way. Taking on big insurance companies and even healthcare organizations not only is stressful for victims of malpractice, but it can be expensive. Unless you have the disposable income to fund a big lawsuit yourself, your law firm must have the financial resources to build the strongest case possible. An inexperienced, underfunded firm may have to push clients to take unfairly low settlements early in the legal process, and may not be prepared to take a case to trial if a settlement cannot be reached.
How Can Janet, Janet & Suggs Help Victims of Medical Malpractice?
From the start, the team at Janet, Janet & Suggs will work with you to determine whether you have a case for malpractice. If you do have a valid claim, JJS can help you fight to recover financial compensation for the damages inflicted on you.
- Medical expenses. Patients should not have to be responsible for medical bills that occur as a result of malpractice injuries. That includes emergency room visits, inpatient treatment and care, additional surgeries, and outpatient care. Malpractice claims will also account for your future medical expenses.
- Loss of wages or earning capacity. Suffering injuries as a result of malpractice often affects your ability to do your job, sometimes permanently. When it does, you can seek compensation for those lost wages. In some cases, compensation is available to account for future wages you had the potential to earn had you not been a victim of malpractice.
- Non-economic losses. The law gives victims of malpractice the right to seek financial compensation for these kinds of damages, and experienced attorneys know how to best calculate the amount of compensation to seek.
