Why Do Both People and Attorneys Become Hesitant to Pursue a Medical Malpractice Case?
People are hesitant to pursue medical malpractice cases because they are afraid of hurting the doctor. Sometimes, for example, they get misdiagnosed and because they have been going to the same doctor for 15, 20 years and they just feel bad about it. If somebody fails to diagnose you and you are going to be left with something that can’t be fixed any longer or because of their failure to diagnose you, you now have to undergo surgery that you wouldn’t have had to before, you owe it to yourself and to your family to protect yourself.
Even though somebody might be friends with the doctor or have a relationship with the doctor, if somebody has harmed you, you need to pursue the claim because ultimately it’s you that is going to be hurt and you need to protect yourself and your family as best as you can.
As far as attorneys not pursuing medical malpractice claims, there are some attorneys that are not comfortable pursuing medical malpractice claims for whatever reason. It could be because of the cost of pursuing a medical malpractice claim, it could be because of the difficulties in pursuing a medical malpractice claim, but either way, if you have a claim and you have been injured as a result of somebody’s negligence by a medical physician, by a nursing home, by a doctor, by a clinic, you need to pursue an aggressive attorney to help you.
