What To Expect With Medical Malpractice Claims

When you or a loved one has suffered harm as the result of medical malpractice or negligence, it is important to seek help from a team of lawyers who understand how to build your claim effectively.

At The McDonough Law Office, our attorneys will thoroughly review your case and let you know whether you have a strong chance of success. If we decide to take your case and you decide to hire us, you will not only get the benefit of more than 60 years of combined legal experience, but you will also receive skill and insight from a licensed medical doctor, who also happens to be our firm’s founding attorney.

Pre-Trial Investigation

Once you have hired us, we will start with a pre-trial investigation and case preparation. This process can take some time and may involve consulting with experts, gathering more information from the hospital or clinic where the malpractice occurred, and reviewing medical texts and journals. We will thoroughly catalog all of the information we collect and will keep you informed every step of the way.

Negotiations And Settlement

Although we prepare every case as if it is going to be heard by a jury, the fact is most medical malpractice claims are settled outside of court. Because we are diligent in gathering evidence, we can argue from a position of strength. If the other side offers a settlement, it always your decision to accept it or reject it. We are there to let you know whether we consider the settlement to be fair or whether accepting the settlement might be a better decision than taking a risk in court. You can rest assured that we will supply the knowledge you need to make the decision that is best for you.
