Should You Settle or Take a Medical Malpractice Claim to Court ? Answers Here
A medical malpractice claim can go two ways when it comes to its resolution – the two parties can come together and negotiate a settlement, or the lawsuit can proceed to trial where it may decided upon by a jury or judge, or both. Medical malpractice lawsuits are often complicated and take time, and it is due to this reason that most individuals are advised by their insurance company to settle instead of having a dragged-out court war which may not fall in their favor. That said, it has been documented that an individual that chooses to go the litigation route may stand to get twice as much in compensation compared to if they were to just settle with the other party via insurance negotiations. That said, regardless of which route you take, it is vital that you retain excellent and experienced legal representation so your interests can be best defended in the long run, something we can help you with.

Litigation Vs Settlement – Which Way Forward for Medical Malpractice
One of the reasons why many law firms opt to not go the litigation or trial route when it comes to medical malpractice cases is the fact that it is a road filled with uncertainty. There are so many unstable variants that may jeopardize the case, such as the composure and background of the physician and their client, the Judge’s ruling history, and whether or not there exists the preponderance of the evidence which is a vital part of all medical malpractice cases. In addition, trials can be expensive, and with no guarantee, many medical malpractice attorneys choose the easy and safe route out, which are insurance company negotiations.

That said, the attorney’s experience and the fact that they know they have sufficient evidence and can call forth multiple expert witnesses as well as coach the plaintiff on their demeanor and believability call all make for a winning combination. At the end of the day, taking a medical malpractice lawsuit to trial may carry with it multiple risks, but the right law firm will have you win your case. Want to learn more?
