The Truth About Medical Malpractice Suits

by actuate | October 31st, 2016

Every year, there are thousands of medical malpractice claims brought against negligent medical professionals. But for the patients who seek justice, just as many decide to not come forward, which we believe is a shame. One of the main reasons for keeping silent is the victim’s reluctance to sue their doctor for fear that it will ruin his or her career. However, in our experience, that’s just not the case.

Most folks in Norfolk wouldn’t think of driving without car insurance. Why? Because they know the inherent risks of getting out on the road every day. Chances are you may eventually be involved in an accident and therefore need an insurance company to take the brunt of the financial impact. The same is true for doctors. Most physicians carry medical malpractice insurance for the same reason. They know that there’s a good chance that they’ll make a mistake at some point in their career that may result in a lawsuit, and with medical malpractice insurance, they’re fully prepared when it does.

If you’ve been the victim of medical malpractice, you deserve compensation for what you’ve been through. Call an experienced Norfolk medical malpractice attorney today for a free, no obligation consultation. We’ll negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf to get what’s fair.
