Each medical malpractice case is unique. There is no set timeline for how long your case will take. To reach a final settlement or verdict in your case, it can take months to years. However, at Kline & Specter, PC, we understand that the serious injuries sustained because of medical malpractice are a costly burden to you and your family. Our attorneys fight to hold the responsible parties accountable for your injuries and recover the compensation you need for medical expenses and long-term care.
The first step in your case is meeting with an attorney to discuss your legal options. You only have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit under your state’s statute of limitations, so schedule your consultation as soon as possible after your injury.
When pursuing a medical malpractice claim, we will file a legal complaint against the responsible medical professionals and notify all parties of the lawsuit. Then the initial discovery process begins. During this process we will request documents and evidence from the opposing parties and gather information through depositions. Expert witnesses will be retained to give their opinions on whether the medical care provided fell below accepted standards of care.
From that point, we can begin preparing for trial and negotiating a settlement. At each step in the process, the experienced lawyers at Kline & Specter will help you understand the status of your case and give you trusted counsel in the decision to settle or pursue a jury verdict.
