If you or a loved one has been harmed due to medical negligence, seeking legal representation is crucial. Experienced medical malpractice lawyers can help assess your case and guide you through the legal process. At Spencer Calahan, we have experience in medical malpractice claims and are dedicated to assisting individuals in Baton Rouge as they seek justice for their injuries. If you are wondering how your situation may be assessed, learn about our process for evaluating medical malpractice cases and how we can assist you.

Understanding Medical Malpractice 

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional fails to provide the standard of care expected in their field, resulting in harm or injury to the patient. These cases can involve doctors, nurses, surgeons, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers. 

However, not every unfavorable medical outcome is considered malpractice. Our medical malpractice lawyers can help you determine the best steps to take after extensively reviewing your situation.

Collecting Evidence

To build a compelling case, we begin by meticulously gathering and analyzing relevant evidence. This includes reviewing medical records, diagnostic tests, expert opinions, and witness statements. Our skilled attorneys leave no stone unturned in examining the evidence to identify deviations from the accepted standard of care. Our focus is on establishing a solid foundation for your claim.

Establishing Negligence 

Proving negligence is a critical aspect of any medical malpractice case. Our experienced lawyers work closely with medical experts who specialize in your area of concern. By leveraging their insights into the appropriate standard of care, we establish a solid foundation to support your claim. Through thorough examination and analysis, we demonstrate how the healthcare provider’s actions or omissions breached this standard.

Evaluating Damages 

Medical malpractice can result in various damages, including physical pain, emotional distress, medical expenses, lost wages, and long-term disability. At Spencer Calahan, we understand the significant impact these damages can have on your life. Our dedicated team evaluates the extent of your losses and collaborates with financial experts when necessary to ensure that all relevant damages are considered.

Negotiation and Litigation

Following a comprehensive assessment of your situation to determine if you have a valid claim, we explore available legal options with you. While our skilled negotiators aim to reach a fair settlement with the negligent party’s insurance company, we are always prepared to represent your case in court if a satisfactory agreement cannot be reached. We will support you as you navigate the path toward seeking justice.
