What Can I Expect From My Philadelphia Medical Malpractice Lawyers?
As personal injury lawyers in Philadelphia, we specialize in creating an environment where our clients feel comfortable relating the facts of the incident to us. We gather all of the medical records and reports surrounding the incident, and then we piece together our client’s recollection, witness testimony and health information to recreate or retell the victim’s story. The information gathering phase of a medical malpractice case is critical and must initially be done in order to file a certificate of merit, which is required in Pennsylvania to move forward with a case. Our attorneys work closely with clients, physicians and various experts to gather evidence and build a strong case against the defendant.
Once a lawsuit is filed, the victim and the victim’s family often must be available for the discovery phase of the case. The discovery phase includes interrogatories, requests for production of documents, depositions, and other fact finding tools in order to fill in the blanks or paint the full picture of the defendant’s negligence or deviation from the standard of care.
Our lawyers file, argue and respond to motions and truly go to bat for our clients. They battle for justice for healthcare misconduct victims throughout the pendency of the case. Our attorneys will either attempt to settle the case or prepare the case for trial, depending on the facts of the case. During trial, our attorneys will fight hard against insurance companies of doctors and hospitals to win for our clients.
Medical malpractice victims and their families often have questions about how lawsuits really work and how their lives will be affected by a lawsuit. Our attorneys are always available to our clients to discuss each stage of the case and how each decision can affect their lives and the outcome of the case. Our attorneys welcome the opportunity to discuss these issues with our clients and potential clients.
