This video features Tad Thomas, a Medical Malpractice attorney based in Illinois.
How does an attorney determine if you're the victim of medical malpractice? That's what we ask Kentucky attorney Ted Thomas in this AskTheLawyers.com Quick Question.
The process for my office is usually a three-step process. First, we get the records in and we do enough of these cases and we have an in-house nurse. We do an in-house review to decide whether or not the case warrants a continued investigation. The second step in our office is we send those records to consulting experts we work with frequently, and have them review and tell us whether or not they think it warrants a case. Third, once it passes those first two, we look for experts in the specialty areas that we need. If it's an emergency room case, we hire ER doctors. If it's an infectious case, infection case, infectious disease doctors, and we hire the specialists that we think we're going to need to be successful in litigating that case.
