Medical malpractice cases are more complicated than most because the alleged negligence must be established by a recognized expert. Finding such an expert to testify against a colleague can be challenging.
Another complication is that malpractice often occurs during a medical procedure. As a result, it can be a murky task to determine which subsequent damages to assign to the original medical condition/procedure, and which are the result of the doctor’s negligence. Again, this will likely require an expert’s involvement.
That being said, it is imperative to choose an attorney with influence to retain a reputable medical professional that will substantiate your claim.
