Q: What type of evidence is important to my case?
A: While the particular evidence that can be critical to proving your case will depend on the nature of your claim, in general, evidence that commonly comes into play in these cases includes (but is not limited to):
- Medical test results
- Doctors’ reports
- Witnesses’ statements
- Expert witness testimony
- Medical bills
- Correspondence from insurance companies.
Q: Do I have to go to court to resolve my malpractice lawsuit?
A: Maybe. How medical malpractice cases are resolved will depend on the specifics of the case, including who the defendants are and how willing they are (or are not) to acknowledge their negligence and appropriately compensate injured patients.
When these parties put up a fight (which can be the case when hospitals and their insurance providers are trying to minimizing payouts to injured people, for example), seeing these cases through trial may be necessary to obtaining the full amount of compensation to which injured people are entitled.
