Recovering Compensation and Why You Need a Lawyer

When a health care provider fails to diagnose or misdiagnoses meningitis, patients and their families may be entitled to compensation. This compensation can include: 

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Pain and suffering

There are many reasons why you need a skilled medical malpractice lawyer like the professionals at Fowler Pickert Eisenmenger Norfleet to help you pursue compensation for a misdiagnosis or a failure to diagnose meningitis. Here are just a few key factors.  

Legal Expertise

Medical malpractice cases are complex and require a deep understanding of both medicine and the legal system. A lawyer with experience in medical malpractice cases can navigate the intricacies of your case effectively.

Investigative Resources

Lawyers have access to investigative resources that help uncover evidence of medical negligence. They can also gather medical records, consult with expert witnesses, and build a strong case on your behalf.

Negotiation Skills

Many medical malpractice cases are settled out of court. A savvy lawyer negotiates with insurance companies and health care providers to secure a fair settlement that covers your damages.

Trial Experience

If your case goes to trial, a knowledgeable attorney is prepared to represent your interests in court. Their experience in presenting cases before a judge and jury greatly improves your chances of a favorable outcome.

Support and Advocacy

Dealing with the aftermath of medical malpractice can be emotionally taxing. Trusting that your dedicated legal team shows you valuable support and advocacy during this challenging time—and ensuring that your rights are protected—provides you with peace of mind so you can focus on recovery.
