Medical malpractice involves situations where persons sustain injuries and damages as a result of a medical provider’s negligence. Because the law expects medical professionals to provide their services with great care, there may be money damages available to persons who are injured when providers fail to adhere to the standards of practice. If you have been injured as a result of medical malpractice, the Queens NY medical malpractice lawyer can help you pursue a claim. 

How do you begin a medical malpractice case? 
If you believe that you have a claim for medical malpractice, then you should contact a medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible. In order for a claim to be considered, it must be filed within the time limit defined by the statute of limitations. Waiting too long to file a claim could result in it being denied. 

A medical malpractice lawyer can review your case and provide advice as to whether you have a claim. If your case could result in the recovery of money damages, then they will help you begin the process by making a demand on the medical provider. 

Most medical professionals have malpractice insurance. After a claim is made, the malpractice insurance adjusters will review the claim to determine if they will attempt to settle. If they admit liability, the insurance provider will either accept, reject or counteroffer your demand. A medical malpractice lawyer will help you assess the various offers to determine if the amount is sufficient. 

If you and the insurance provider cannot agree on a settlement amount, then your claim could be litigated through the court. If it is not resolved through the litigation process, then you can present your case in a trial.
