Aggressive advocacy needed to combat medical malpractice defenses

On Behalf of | Jun 15, 2018 | Medical Malpractice

Pursuing a medical malpractice lawsuit takes courage. It also takes a firm grasp of the law and how it applies to the facts at hand. This is because, as we discussed on the blog previously, there are a number of defenses to these types of claims. Also, high-paid doctors and established hospitals have extensive resources to dump into their defense. This means that aggressive defense attorneys will do everything they can to rip apart a victim’s claim, even if that means blaming the victim himself or herself.

To combat such tactics, medical malpractice victims should carefully consider who they choose to be their legal advocate. A competent legal professional, like those at Paul B Weitz & Associates, will know how to spot weaknesses with a hospital negligence claim, then diligently work to gather evidence and witness testimony to strengthen the claim. Our legal team knows how to anticipate potential defense strategies, which leaves us well-positioned to present our clients’ claims in a way that is persuasive to judges and juries.

But our zealous advocacy does not stop with fighting to impose liability. We also work hard to illustrate the full extent of damage caused to our victims. We carefully assess pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages and other damages such as permanent disfigurement to try to recover as much compensation as is possible for our clients. This is no small thing, as the imposition of liability essentially means nothing without an adequate showing of damages suffered.

We recognize that you have a lot of choices when it comes to choosing legal representation. However, we think that those who take a closer look at our firm find that our approach to medical malpractice claims, focus on client relationships and record of success set us apart from the rest.
