Medical Malpractice

What Happens if Your Doctor or Hospital Denies Medical Malpractice?

Dealing with a serious injury or illness that occurred after you were treated by someone who was supposed to make you feel better can be extremely difficult. You may feel like your trust was violated and that your healthcare provider didn’t care about your wellbeing or recovery. And while not at all poor outcomes are caused by medical malpractice, some are—but getting doctors, hospitals, and clinics to admit that malpractice occurred can be difficult.

In fact, most healthcare providers and facilities will initially deny malpractice in almost all claims. That’s because the burden of proof is enormous and it lies solely on the victims themselves and their lawyers if they choose to hire them. In addition, medicine is an inexact science, and that means mistakes and poor outcomes can be waved away or minimized by providers, their legal teams, and their insurers.

But having an experienced and aggressive legal team on your side can change everything. Even the most uncooperative healthcare provider or facility can’t do much when there’s overwhelming evidence pointing towards negligent behavior causing an injury or illness. And at Skolrood Law Firm, that’s exactly what we look for when we build medical malpractice claims for our clients.
