Most people who are injured by a doctor or hospital just want to know what happened. But when doctors know they've made a mistake, their insurance company's lawyers can make that impossible. At Spangenberg Shibley & Liber, we're ready to help you with the experience, skills, and sophistication necessary to untangle the medical records and figure out whether medical malpractice caused your injury.
Proving Negligence · Connecting Injury
A bad medical result isn't always medical malpractice or negligence. Oftentimes, medical errors do occur with catastrophic results. We know the difference and what you'll need to prove to win your case.
First, the medical provider must have violated the standard of care prevailing in his or her practice expertise — whether a doctor, surgeon, radiologist, dentist, or other practitioner.
Second, the violation of the standard of care — the negligence — must have caused the injury.
You Cannot Create a Medical Negligence Case
At Spangenberg Shibley & Liber, we know what it takes to win a medical malpractice lawsuit. Our attorneys have access to the most sophisticated technical and medical resources to investigate and prepare your case to win.
We are highly selective in the types of medical negligence cases we bring to court. When opposing insurance attorneys see our name on the lawsuit, they know it is well-conceived, carefully prepared and has the merit to be a successful court case.
For you, that means insurance company lawyers come to the table prepared to discuss a full and fair settlement, or they will face a jury.
Jurors want to believe the best out of doctors, so there is a built-in prejudice against medical malpractice lawsuits. We work hard to show undeniable evidence that your personal injury or wrongful death claim is directly related to a doctor, nurse or other medical professional who failed to meet an expected level of care.
