At Domina Law Group, our team of Nebraska medical malpractice lawyers know
that there are times when the medical professionals we are expected to
trust make mistakes. Unfortunately, medical malpractice is a serious issue
and can result in serious harm. These types of cases are often difficult
and require extensive work, but with skilled and dedicated attorneys on
your side, you may be able to seek the compensation you need. Our firm
wants you to be prepared every step of the way, so we have provided some
of the steps involved in a
medical malpractice claim. This can help you understand what is going to happen next.
In order to have a chance at success in a medical malpractice case, it
needs to be shown that the doctor, nurse, or other medical professional
acted in negligence. To prove this, our firm compiles various evidence
from investigation. We take the time to get to know the damages you sustained
and work to determine the exact cause. If we can show that your doctor
acted in negligence and made an error, it can go a long way towards helping
Filing the Lawsuit
After we have determined if medical negligence was the cause for your injuries,
we can file a lawsuit against the negligent party or parties. This is
the time that we determine who is liable and if the hospital or medical
facility itself holds any responsibility. In some situations, hospitals
may fail to look into a doctor’s history to determine if he or she
is fully qualified to provide care. This could make them responsible for
Building a Case
We go through the motions of building the case for you. This means we get
all evidence necessary such as written documents, witnesses, and expert
witnesses. Expert witnesses can be used to help show that the doctor made
a mistake or another medical professional made an error in their care of you.
Before we even move forward, we look to negotiate with the responsible
party and come up with a suitable settlement. We try to help our clients
avoid the hassle of court dates and the stress of trial. If a just settlement
is offered, we can accept it on your behalf. If a settlement is denied,
we move on to the next step of the process.
Finally, if we are unable to successfully negotiate a settlement, we go
to trial with the negligent party. This is when we can present the evidence
we have to a judge and jury, who will then make the final decision regarding
the case. Our firm is experienced in trial matters and we know how to
represent our clients’ best interests.
