Maryland medical malpractice attorney Marcus Boston talks about why it can be challenging to place a number on your medical malpractice case early in the process.
So you want to know initially how much is your Maryland medical malpractice case worth? I want to explain to you why at the start of your case it will be very hard to determine how much your case is worth.
How we see this a lot is when a client or the client’s attorney is contacted by the risk management officer from the hospital. Usually this person will try to see how much the case can be resolved for at the start, especially when medical negligence or wrongdoing seems clear.
The reason this can be very hard to determine initially is because chances are you do not know the extent of your injuries. You do not know for example will you need follow up procedures. You have not had an opportunity to review all of your medical records. You have generally not had an opportunity to see how this injury will effect your personal life, be it with family or at work. It is not until you and your attorney can get the answers to these and other questions that a proper evaluation can be done in your case.
