If you’ve been the victim of negligent healthcare and suffer as a result, you should hire a malpractice lawyer in Raleigh, NC, to help you find the justice you deserve. No one should injure another and get away with it, regardless of their profession.

We are well versed in such cases at the Law Offices of Kenneth J. Steinberg, P.A., and will provide tips here on how to file a medical malpractice case. Before we go any further, we need to define malpractice. At its very essence, it occurs when a medical or health professional causes injury or death to a patient through omission or a negligent act.

Your malpractice lawyer’s first steps will include contacting the doctor or healthcare worker to get an idea of what went wrong and see if there’s something that can be done as a remedy. If that is unsuccessful, your lawyer should contact the relevant medical licensing board. They can issue a warning or discipline the individual and can provide you with guidance about further steps.

As part of the process, your malpractice and personal injury attorney will get a medical assessment of your case. When it’s determined your case has merit, then you can consider settling out of court.

If that isn’t viable, then rely on your lawyer to fight for fair compensation in court.
