Filing a medical malpractice lawsuit can be stressful, and victims should not be tormented with repeatedly talking about the heartbreaking story to different experts.

FAQs

Is there a time limit for medical malpractice cases?

Most patients don’t know the statute of limitations for their state and feel they can file medical malpractice anytime. Patients have a little as one year (with some exceptions and depending on the state) to sue for medical malpractice. The best thing is for the patient to contact a licensed medical malpractice attorney as soon as they notice.

What qualifies as medical malpractice?

The presence of pain or damages doesn’t mean that the patient has a case. Many patients assume that the obvious presence of a scar means they have a case. It is only a case if it is due to the Healthcare professional’s negligence. Most claimants don’t understand that there’s no legal repercussion for emotional damage not caused by the physician’s negligence, and they cannot sue for an injury that almost occurred (for instance, if a  patient almost died because of what this surgeon did).

What are the possible outcomes — or chances of success — of a malpractice case? 

If a patient is retained by an attorney who thinks their claim has merits, there’s a little over 50% chance they will receive a payout, depending on that attorney’s experience. This number depends on how well prepared that attorney is for the specific claim brought up. For example, some attorneys have a success rate of over 95%, while others succeed in as little as 15% of the claims they take. We define success here as a payout to the patient in the form of either a settlement offer from the doctor’s insurance company to avoid going to court (99% payouts) or a court judgment ruling in their favor (1% of payout). If a claim doesn’t receive a payout, it is often because the patient or the attorneys dismissed it.

Other factors influencing success rates depend on: the presence of damage, the extent of the damage, proof of causation by the plastic surgeon, the medical records provided by the patient, state of the patient, and participation of the patient in the malpractice.
