How Do I Know If It Was Malpractice?
It can be difficult to know whether or not a bad result was medical malpractice.
In a medical malpractice case, it is ultimately the jury who decides whether medical malpractice occurred, but before a case can be filed in court, your attorney must confer with an experienced and credentialed medical doctor to get a Certificate of Merit that the negligent doctor breached the standard of care and caused your injury.
If the case is found to have merit, expert testimony is further needed to prove your case before a judge and jury. At Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., we work with highly regarded experts with in-depth knowledge of your situation. These experts may write reports and then testify in court about what similar doctors in similar situations would have done, and how your doctor's actions differed from this behavior.
Regardless of the nature of your experience, if you have suffered a life-changing injury or the death of a loved one, talk with our attorneys about your options.
