You will need legal representation when you have been a victim of Medical Malpractice resulting in significant impairments.
The main reason is that in Oklahoma the law requires that you obtain a written medical report from a medical care provider that practices in the same area of medicine that your provider was in when the negligence occurred.
This is expensive and difficult to accomplish, as the medical providers near the area where the medical care took place, will not normally testify against a fellow medical provider. This is sometimes referred to loosely, as “The Conspiracy of Silence”.
Out of state medical experts are expensive. When the case is sent to them for review, they will expect all of the information to be complete and organized along with a sizable check enclosed for their review and to write a report. There is no guarantee what their opinion will be on whether the actions of your provider fell below the “Accepted Standard of Medical Care” for that particular area of medicine.
You must prove that the doctor not only made a mistake, but that it fell below this accepted standard of medical care to be negligence. Then you must prove that this negligence was the cause of the medical injuries. If it is a mere mistake of judgment it is not medical malpractice.
Medical Malpractice cases get expensive to prepare because the work involved and the expert fees.
