  • Do I have a medical malpractice case?

    Bradley’s Answer

    If the 2nd surgery totally repaired the damage, and essentially your condition is where you should have been after the first surgery, your monetary damages are limited to the cost of the 2nd surgery and the 6 months of pain. Because medical malpractice cases are so expensive and difficult to win, there may not be enough potential recovery for an attorney to take it on.

    Bradley’s Answer

    An attorney following ethical rules can't guarantee a minimum. He should give you his best idea about the value of a case and explain to you the risks and benefits of settlement at the final number of the insurance company. Some people are more willing to gamble than others.

    Bradley’s Answer

    I agree that you need to consult with an attorney if you hope to receive anything close to a fair settlement. Do not agree to a recorded statement or provide any medical documents to the insurance company until you consult with an attorney.

    Went to doctor for low t when it turned out to be advanced bladder cancer and prostate cancer doctor blew me off for asking questions and his staff nurse gave false statement yo doctor he banded me from practice found out he was part of a group's ...

    Bradley’s Answer

    You have to prove that the 2 month delay caused all your symptoms. Cancer cases are hard for this because even if a doctor missed a diagnosis, because of the medical condition, there might not have been anything he could have done anyway. So get your records together and reviewed by an attorney, but be aware you have a tough issue.

    Bradley’s Answer

    Because the costs of medical malpractice cases are substantial, unless the baby has lasting and permanent damages from the medical errors, a lawsuit would not justify the cost.
