How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases

When serious injuries or death occur from deficient medical care, determining exactly what went wrong and proving liability through an independent investigation sets the foundation for a strong negligence claim. Moseley Collins Law conducts in-depth investigations to build compelling cases.

Collecting Records and Securing Evidence

Collecting Records and Securing Evidence

The first step after meeting with a client is to gather and evaluate all relevant medical records, files, test results, imaging scans, billing documents, and other tangible evidence. Our lawyers take custody of records, create timelines of events, confirm client recounts, identify areas that lack documentation for additional requesting, and pinpoint junctures requiring forensic scrutiny by medical experts. Preserving vital evidence is essential both for internal analysis and presentation in court if a fair settlement isn’t reached beforehand.

Consulting Medical Experts in Relevant Fields

While lawyers manage the legal aspects, we enlist help from doctors and specialists with no prior ties to defendants in order to get unbiased medical opinions on whether acceptable standards were met.

For each unique client situation, our firm consults multiple medical experts from relevant specializations to assess different aspects of clinical care and accuracy of diagnosis, treatment, procedures, decision making and more. Getting medical specialists involved early not only builds a solid foundation for the lawyer’s arguments but also lends outside credibility.

Proving Causation of Injuries

At the crux of medical negligence claims is demonstrating harm occurred because of subpar medical care that deviated from accepted protocols, not due to inevitable health complications. By consulting medical specialists, our investigations establish probable cause through statements of how victims would have realistically fared if properly diagnosed and treated versus the extent of otherwise avoidable injuries wrongfully sustained because reasonable care standards weren’t met.

Assessing Damages

We don’t just prove medical malpractice occurred through independent investigations and testimony. We also work to quantify the damage it caused clients one loss at a time. This means tallying medical bills, projecting future healthcare/equipment costs, calculating lost income and loss of future earnings, noting diminished quality of life, and more. We build a damages demand based on the lifelong impact on victims and families.

Proactive Approach for Successful Outcomes

By handling rigorous investigations and building robust cases supported by medical experts, we position clients for the possibility of positive outcomes including favorable pre-trial settlements that avoid court. If reasonable offers don’t come, we proceed fully prepared to methodically prove negligence in litigation. Thorough record collection, medical expert analysis, causation arguments, and damage assessment from the start set up our injured clients as well as possible during a difficult time.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) How do I know if what happened qualifies as medical malpractice?

You may have a valid case if injuries or death occurred because a Diamond Springs doctor, nurse, technician, hospital or other healthcare provider failed to meet accepted medical standards and protocols. Some clear signs of negligence include surgical errors, misdiagnosis/delayed diagnosis, childbirth injuries, lack of informed consent, and medication mistakes.

Will pursuing a claim hurt my relationship with my doctor and hospital?

No, filing a legitimate negligence lawsuit should not negatively impact your care from providers who follow ethical standards. Any form of retaliation or discrimination against someone exercising legal rights is prohibited.

Who pays when I win my case?

Compensation typically comes from malpractice insurance companies, not individual doctors. Most healthcare practitioners in California carry policies that cover damages when found liable. Awards over policy limits may involve the provider's personal assets.

Is there a limit on compensation for medical malpractice victims?

No damage caps apply to most California medical negligence claims thanks the 1975 Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA). Compensation amounts depend on factors like severity of injury, length of suffering, expenses, and lost income.

Do I have to pay the lawyer if I lose?

At Moseley Collins Law, medical malpractice cases are taken on contingency. This means no payment is owed unless we successfully secure financial recovery for you. We only get paid if you win.
