Medical Malpractice

OUR STRATEGY

SA LAW, P.C. understands that litigating a medical malpractice case force people to re-live a negative event and also causes additional emotional pains. We use our best efforts to ensure prospective clients are not advised to pursue a claim unless research validates doing so. A successful malpractice claim requires proof that a health care professional did not provide the level of care similar professionals would have under like circumstances, and that an injury resulted from the failure. After the initial review and research, SA LAW, P.C. will provide a candid assessment of these two criteria.

SA LAW, P.C. thoroughly investigates claims of medical malpractice. We first obtain information relating to culpable parties, the injuries, and monetary value. An attorney from SA LAW, P.C. will meet with potential clients to obtain a case history, to describe a medical malpractice case and the judicial system, and to answer questions. Subsequent to the initial meeting SA LAW, P.C. requests medical records from relevant health care providers. Once we receive the records our staff researches the underlying medicine at the medical library, online, and in legal databases. We also research impartial doctors to assist with the file review, requesting an opinion from the impartial doctor concerning the underlying medical treatment at issue, and verifying the foundation of the unbiased medical opinion.

If all of the elements of a medical malpractice action are satisfied, SA LAW, P.C. may elect to represent and protect your interests. SA LAW, P.C. conducts free consultations for potential medical malpractice matters and typically handles medical malpractice claims on a contingency fee basis. A contingency fee means that we do not collect attorney fees unless we recover money.

After preliminary stages conclude, our staff meets to discuss case value, including the results of other similar cases that have been taken to a verdict by our firm as well as in various states by other attorneys. The information is then used to determine the fair value of a matter. We also analyze the facts of other similar cases to identify trends and issues resulting in favorable, and unfavorable, verdicts. Our research also allows us to either present a case to the jury from a position of strength or engage in serious pre-trial settlement discussions.

SA LAW, P.C. often attempts to obtain fair value for a case prior to filing a lawsuit. A settlement may occur just months after an initial consultation, of could take a number of years. If appropriate, we recommend and participate in early Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) such as mediation and/or arbitration, to facilitate settlement. If a choice is made not to settle, we can file suit and prepare for a jury trial to obtain the best possible result for our clients. If justified, we conduct mock trials to obtain case feedback and opinions from impartial people.
