What is a settlement?
In a medical malpractice case, a settlement is an amount of money that both parties agree upon as compensation for a victim's injuries. Typically, upon receiving a settlement the victim will have no further right to compensation for the same case.
Will my medical malpractice case go to trial?
Whether your particular case goes to trial will vary depending on a number of different factors. However, the vast majority of medical malpractice claims are settled outside of the courtroom.
What is the value of my case?
The specific value of your Orange County medical malpractice claim will vary drastically depending on the particular situation, primarily upon the extent of injury you have sustained as well as the doctor's conduct and how your injuries will affect you in the future. An attorney at our firm can work to determine the true worth of your case by utilizing the services of medical professionals, economists and psychologists to evaluate the extent of injury or losses you have and will sustain.
How do I know that a doctor actually committed malpractice?
It must be proven that a doctor failed to provide medical care based upon accepted standards at the time. Essentially, you must be able to prove that the doctor did not act as a reasonable medical professional would have in the same or similar circumstances.
