One question in which many people have on their mind when they think that they are the victim of medical malpractice is will it be worth it to file a medical malpractice case.
If you are reading this educational video or watching the companion video with it and wondering the same thing please know that you are not alone in this thinking.
Many people wonder the same thing before reaching out to a Maryland medical malpractice lawyer.
A WORD OF CAUTION FIRST…
Before getting explaining this issue, we must inform you of one hard truth.
That truth is that at the end of the day, you, the client have the final say so as to whether to push forward and file a medical malpractice case.
Your lawyer can help explain the issues to you, but ultimately it is your call as to whether it will be worth it to file a medical malpractice case.
WILL YOU BE “UPSIDE DOWN?”
One crucial place of analysis in these types of cases deals with the fact of will you be upside down if you file your case.
What do we mean by upside down you may be wondering?
Let us say that your case is worth $100,000.
This includes your lost wages, past and future medical bills, etc…
However, it will cost $80,000 to bring your case to court.
Can you see how this may not be worth it, especially given the fact that these cases take years to conclude in many instances and can be grueling on the person bringing the case?
ARE YOU UP TO IT?
In the above paragraph we quickly mentioned the grueling nature of these cases.
Medical malpractice cases take a long time to get to the finish line.
This means that the person bringing the case has to be in it for the long haul.
Not only can the case be hard on the person bringing the case, it can also be a challenge for their family also.
So, in the end, is this really something that you know that you are up to the challenge?
