What Do I Need To Know About Bringing A Medical Malpractice Case

  • A client who has never been in a legal trial before will have a lot of questions about what to expect from start to end of the case
  • The first thing done, as a team, is to get the facts out on an intake statement, which is similar to seeing a doctor for the first time
  • If your case is one that can be helped with, the next step is to obtain any relevant medical records
  • Can it be shown that your departure from the doctor caused you an injury?
  • Once it is determined that there is right and wrong to your case, a lawsuit may begin when the summons are filed in the appropriate court
  • New York has a specific pleading for this legal process called the Bill of Particulars to express what was specifically done wrong
  • It is important to include every wrong doing in the Bill of Particulars, and serve it on the defendant
  • The process of discovery states when we are required to exchange certain information
  • This entire process is about information control, and properly asking and answering questions
  • Both sides have medical records, but both sides do not know conversations that took place and thoughts in the minds of the victim
  • An agreement must be met between the plaintiff and the defendant, or else there will be a trial
