Connecticut residents who are the victims of medical malpractice can experience life-altering problems from the botched treatment. Doctor errors in surgery, misdiagnosis and prescription medication mix-ups can result in injuries or a worsened medical condition, and then the patient is left to pick up the pieces. In this type of situation, one option could be a medical malpractice lawsuit. But, these types of cases are, oftentimes, complex. This is why many plaintiffs will consider the possibility of settling the case before trial.

Why should Connecticut residents consider settlement when they are pursuing a medical malpractice lawsuit? Well, all our readers need to consider the many complicated steps in these types of cases. For instance, as the victim is preparing the case, there are certain deadlines that will become important. And, quite a bit of medical documentation will need to be gathered. Victims will need to have their case thoroughly reviewed in order to ensure that a valid claim exists. And, this is all before the case is even filed.

If a medical malpractice case actually proceeds to trial, the issues in the case can be difficult to present to a jury. After all, doctors and other healthcare professionals have years of training and experience that allows them to grasp complex medical terms and understand the effect of certain medications and treatments on the human body. Making this information plain for a jury can leave a lot “lost in translation.”

Settling the case before trial can still result in the injured victims receiving the financial compensation they deserve. Each case is unique and the decision on whether or not to settle or take the case to trial is a difficult one. If you have been injured due to medical malpractice, you may wish to consult an attorney to discuss the legal options available to you.
