Why Hire a Medical Malpractice Attorney

Loma Linda University operates six hospitals, a physician practice corporation, and remote clinics around the United States. Still, Loma Linda University has had its share of medical malpractice incidents. If you’ve received treatment there and have suffered an injury that you believe was due to medical negligence, it’s essential to contact an attorney immediately.

They are a large organization with a lot of money and resources, so it’s vital that you speak with a highly regarded and experienced medical malpractice attorney. If you hire an attorney without enough resources or associates, it’s likely that they’ll bury your attorney in paperwork and draw out the case for as long as possible. On the other hand, if you hire Dr. Fagel, he knows exactly what to do to successfully recover compensation from Loma Linda University for a medical malpractice claim.

How Long Can I Expect My Case To Take?

Most medical malpractice cases are settled before they even get to trial. This means that your lawyer and the defendant’s lawyer come to an agreement regarding how much they will compensate you. Sometimes this happens early on in the process, or sometimes this occurs right before trial once the defense realizes that they have a relatively weak case and don’t want the expense and publicity of a trial.

If your lawyer and the defendant’s lawyer can’t reach an agreement and the case goes to trial, it will take substantially longer to resolve the case. Every case is different, but it can take anywhere from one to three years for your case to go to trial, even longer in some circumstances. Once it gets to trial, it could take months for the trial to be completed. Once you realize how long these cases can take, it’s clear why so many of them are resolved before trial. By the time the defendant spends money on attorneys, it often makes more sense just to settle the case.
