The most common thing we hear from clients who come to us with a potential medical malpractice claim is they don’t want it to happen to someone else. Most folks aren’t litigious, and never before imagined filing a lawsuit. But they’ve endured a terrible experience, and they want to protect others— to spare them from going through the same thing.
Lawsuits protect patients. And patients need protecting.
Clients will often tell us they are less interested in the money they can win in a lawsuit, and more concerned that nobody else experiences the same pain or loss they suffered through. This is particularly true with medical malpractice cases. People want to trust their doctors and hospitals. We rely on medical professionals to come through for us in times of crisis. We need them to be at the top of their game.
If you are an expectant mother, you’ve probably had your fair share of doctor’s visits, each being a chance to load up on information as you prepare to welcome a new baby into your life. You’ve gone through prenatal checklists, talked about birthing preferences, learned about pregnancy risk factors and more. But has your OB-GYN ever talked to you about brachial plexus injuries?
One of our goals at Keefe, Keefe & Unsell, P.C. is to make sure our clients understand how the legal process works. You wouldn’t hire an auto mechanic without first asking how he or she planned to fix your car. The same should be true with your lawyer.
