We Prepare Medical Malpractice Cases That Juries Can Understand
Medical malpractice cases can be extremely complex and technical. Our medical malpractice lawyers understand how to prepare medical malpractice cases, what experts to consult, and how to communicate our client’s injuries and suffering so that a jury will understand and award fair compensation.
At Jacobs & Dow, LLC, in New Haven, Connecticut, our attorneys have protected the rights and interests of injured people since the firm was founded in 1947.
The First Step Is To Obtain A Good Faith Opinion
Under Connecticut law, a preliminary finding of negligence on the part of the physician or hospital must be made before a medical malpractice lawsuit can be filed. After reviewing our client’s treatment records, our lawyers send the records to a qualified physician for review. If that expert finds negligence, he or she will provide us with a “good faith” letter describing what happened to cause the injury and who was at fault.
When filing a medical malpractice lawsuit, our lawyers send the good faith letter of our own expert to the party we are suing, so that it is clear our claim has merit. Once the lawsuit begins, our firm pays the costs of the case, including the expenses of trial if necessary.
Once the case is filed, our attorneys consult medical economists and life care planners in order to accurately quantify future costs associated with your injuries, including necessary medical treatments and lost income. In death cases, we develop the evidence necessary to prove loss of financial and emotional support, loss of consortium on the part of the surviving spouse, and lost quality of life for the deceased. We quantify the economic loss and illustrate the physical and emotional impact of non-economic losses so that insurance companies and juries will understand the true value of these injuries.
