Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice Attorney in Rochester NY

Medical malpractice or medical negligence cases provide particular challenges to the attorney. The key to success lies with retaining the right medical expert. An opinion from a qualified medical expert is necessary before any medical negligence case can even be started. Often a case will require hiring more than one medical expert if different medical issues must be addressed. Finding the right expert is not a simple process. If I am retained as your attorney, I will locate and hire qualified experts who will be willing to testify in your case against the physicians who caused your injuries. My office usually advances the costs of retaining these experts.

The procedures in medical malpractice cases are far more difficult and complicated than in other types of lawsuits. There are special filing and certification requirements which must be met before the case can proceed. Medical malpractice cases are also more expensive to prosecute than most negligence cases. To succeed in any medical malpractice case, it is essential that you be represented by an attorney experienced in that area of practice.
