Common Obstacles for a Successful Medical Malpractice Lawsuit

Hundreds of thousands of people are injured every year across the United States when doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals act negligently and make mistakes. And, although you may be able to file a civil lawsuit and fight for financial compensation to pay for the repercussions of their negligent actions, medical malpractice cases can, unfortunately, have a very low success rate. In fact, many statistics suggest that only 2 out of every 10 medical malpractice cases are successful in court and before a judge.

There are a number of obstacles you could face with your medical malpractice case. However, you can increase your chances of having success with your case by understanding these obstacles beforehand. Another way you can increase your chances of having a successful case is by contacting the Louisville personal injury lawyer at the Sampson Law Firm today by calling 502-584-5050 to schedule a free consultation.

Problems with Your Medical Malpractice Case

Medical malpractice cases can be very complicated and involved. If you file a medical malpractice case, you may run into a number of obstacles, including the following:

  • Finding an expert witness for your case – This can be very challenging because many medical professionals will not testify against fellow doctors or medical professionals.
  • Not filing because you are afraid your case will go public – Make sure you discuss this with an attorney, but for the most part, medical malpractice cases are handled in private.
  • Worries about going to doctors in the future – Many people are scared that no doctor will treat them in the future if they file a lawsuit against a medical professional.
  • Doctor is a close friend – Many injured patients are afraid to take action against doctors who are family friends.
  • Cannot get access to medical records – In some cases you may be denied access to medical records due to privacy issues.
