Many instances of medical malpractice occur each year because of errors committed by doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other medical professionals. While these mistakes may lead to very serious complications for a patient, it may not be easy to prove that they were caused by a medical professional’s negligence. However, when that evidence is present, a patient’s chances of receiving compensation for a claim raises substantially.
Fortunately, a knowledgeable lawyer can help you gather and strengthen your evidence if you have been injured because of a doctor’s negligence. To discuss your legal options, contact the Charleston medical malpractice attorneys of the Steinberg Law Firm by calling 843-720-2800 today.
EVIDENCE IN MALPRACTICE CASES
Presenting reliable evidence in a malpractice case can have a major impact on a patient’s chances of successfully securing compensation. In fact, a 2006 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed the following results:
84% of patients with ‘almost certain’ evidence of error were compensated
72% of patients with ‘strong evidence’ of error were compensated
61% of patients with ‘moderate’ evidence of error were compensated
19% of patients with ‘almost no or no’ evidence of error were compensated
These results show that any amount of reliable evidence can have a profound effect on a case’s success rate.
