When a person sustains a serious injury due to the negligence of another
party, they start to think about the next steps. One of the steps that
you may take is finding a law firm to represent you and help you seek
compensation for the damages you have sustained. Finding the right firm
can be a bit of a challenge, but you should know what advantages you are
offered with each firm.
One thing you may want to look for in a Houston birth injury or medical
malpractice case is if the firm has any medical professionals on staff.
These professionals can help in a number of ways. Here are some of the
benefits of hiring a firm with an MD and Ph.D nurse on staff.
Having a Full-Time MD
When it comes to determining injury type, cause of injury, and securing
the evidence necessary to help a case succeed, having a full-time MD on
staff can be a difference maker. This gives the firm knowledge into the
medical field that the opposition may not have, which means the victim
can better understand their options, but also get the treatment they need.
Experience Finding Cause of Problems
An MD and nurse will understand the process from the moment a patient walks
into a medical facility until they are discharged. This is the same if
an expecting mother is set to give birth. The nurse knows the level of
care these patients should receive. Anything less than that standard can
cause serious harm to anyone being treated.
By having an MD on staff, we can also recognize any discrepancies in the
care the patient was provided, determining if a certain action —
or inaction — was the cause of the harm. They can help determine
if there was a communication error, misdiagnosis, or any other issues.
Providing Evidence When Needed
In any kind of medical malpractice or birth injury case, it must be shown
that the patient was in fact injured and it was the fault of the medical
professional that caused the injury. Having medical professionals on staff
means the firm has the knowledge of someone in the industry. This makes
proving negligence and the existence of an injury much easier.
