Medical malpractice is a complicated type of personal injury case because you have the burden of proof to show the insurance company representing the medical practitioner that they are the reason you’re injured. While this is a tricky task, our attorney is up for the challenge.
These cases can also be particularly frustrating because you seek medical attention to feel better, and if you are a victim of medical malpractice, it can feel like a betrayal of trust. You very well may be suffering from a lack of care that you needed in addition to wrong care that has harmed you in ways you were perfectly healthy before. This can affect your physical and emotional health.
Since 2003, there have been tort reform measures that have been passed with the sole purpose of making medical malpractice cases harder to file and litigate. It also makes it harder to recover the amount of compensation that should be collected. That is why you want a highly experienced Austin medical malpractice attorney like Daniel Smith who knows how to handle a tricky case successfully.
