How Evidence Affects Your Case

How Evidence Affects Your Case

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.


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.
