Thoroughly Investigating Your Case from Start to Finish

Thoroughly Investigating Your Case from Start to Finish

When an incident of potential medical malpractice occurs, undertaking an in-depth investigation is crucial for understanding what went wrong and determining if negligence was truly involved. At our firm, we follow systematic protocols to gather information and identify if standards of care were breached.

Comprehensive Record Collection

The first step our lawyers take is to collect all documentation relevant to the case at hand. We gather medical charts, test results, physician notes, surgical reports, laboratory data, scans, prescription information and any other record that provides insights into the course of medical care. Piecing together a complete history enables evaluating care quality.

Expert Analysis Across Specialties

With records obtained, we then engage medical experts certified in specialties related to the alleged malpractice. For example, if negligence during a surgery is suspected, we retain seasoned surgeons to weigh in. These specialists examine care provided at each step and compare to reasonable standards expected in their fields. Their objective, expert opinions carry significant legal weight for demonstrating areas providers failed expectations.

Exploring Liability

In certain cases, investigative findings clearly show individuals or entities accountable for substandard care. At other times, responsibility may be shared across parties like doctors, nurses, techs or the hospital itself. Our lawyers thoroughly analyze results to identify each party displaying negligence in the situation at hand.

Building a Negligence Argument

As patterns emerge from the expert analyses, investigative findings and record review, we construct arguments demonstrating how specifically providers breached expectations. For instance, a surgeon may have failed to detect a serious postoperative infection or administered too high and anesthesia dose. We translate evidence into compelling negligent actions.

Relentless Commitment

Throughout any malpractice investigation, our legal team remains fully devoted to uncovering the truth. We exhaust all resources to determine what went wrong and if injuries or loss could have been prevented by appropriate medical care. This tireless commitment gives our injured clients the greatest advantage in pursuing justice.

By following this rigorous investigation process, our firm builds credibility around the validity of negligence claims. Contact us today to explore your medical malpractice situation.
