Analyzing Records for Medical Malpractice Victims
The essence of evaluating a medical malpractice case is determining what happened and how the injury occurred. We have a great deal of experience in practicing medicine. We understand how the health care system works, how people keep records, and this knowledge is very valuable to try to determine, in a medical malpractice scenario, whether there’s a case or not.
When we look at records, sometimes things that indicate a doctor or hospital error are evident, sometimes they are not. Sometimes things are missing from the records that ought to be there. You look carefully for that. Now, we go deeper into the data, whether their pathology slides or x-rays to determine if the underlying interpretations have been correct or whether they need be part of the component of the problem.
Ultimately, it’s a detective search to find out what happened. Often we are able to identify the cause of an injury in a way that other law firms may not be able to do and, therefore, make a case out of a situation that someone else may have walked away from.
