Understanding the Value of your Medical Malpractice Case

Medical malpractice settlements vary because there are many factors involved. Some of these factors include:

  • The severity of your injury
  • The permanence of your injury
  • If the injury caused loss of limb, disfigurement, or other life-changing impact
  • Your health prior to the injury
  • The total cost of your medical care
  • If the injury impacted your ability to work

During our initial consultation, we’ll ask about the ways your injury has impacted your life. This will help us understand the basis for your claim, and if a medical malpractice lawsuit is the next best step.
