Even in a clear case of malpractice, it is difficult to calculate the proper money damages without the help of a malpractice lawyer.
- Careful consideration must be made of the consequences of the harm and of possible future risks.
- Professional literature must be researched.
- Independent experts – often from out of town – must be consulted.
On very small claims, a lawyer will sometimes help you settle the claim yourself or tell you how to use small claims court. But, in most cases, you will need the help of an experienced attorney.
