Were you or a loved one injured due to the negligence of a medical professional? Watch this video to find out what you should know about medical malpractice settlement offers in New York.
When someone is seriously injured as a result of medical malpractice, there may be times where insurance companies who represent the doctors or the hospitals make an offer. It’s important to carefully consider this first offer, but at the same time it’s important to understand that this may not be the best route to take it.
At that point early on, you may not know what’s to be expected into the future with your future medical bills, inability to work, lost wages, and your future pain and suffering. Maybe your injuries are getting better, but you have to understand that your quality of life may suffer. You’re entitled to compensation not just for the pain, but the suffering. Part of the suffering is the things that you have to endure, not just now but in the future.
It’s important that you have an attorney who’s not just going to necessarily grab that first offer, or try to seek a quick resolution. It’s more important that you seek a fair resolution. You want to aggressively litigate your case. You want to find someone who’s pushing hard. You want to make sure that everything’s being considered properly. Often what happens is, if you don’t consider that, years later you’re not happy and you can’t look back and get money for that. You want to make sure all that is considered and all properly looked into at the time that you take whatever eventual offer it is that you take.
