Medical malpractice lawsuits are some of the most complex and time-consuming cases we handle. Because your claim will be against a doctor, hospital, or pharmacy, the rival insurance companies are much bigger and more expensive than a typical car accident case. These insurance carriers — and the attorneys they employ — are well-prepared to fight against anyone who tries to litigate against them. However, you will be in good hands if you retain the services of The Gunnels Law Firm. We are just as prepared as they are to handle any medical malpractice insurance investigations and turn them around in your favor.
Medical Malpractice Insurance Investigations | Using Our Experience
Atlanta medical malpractice attorney Chris Gunnels spent the first portion of his career as a lawyer for insurance companies. After years of learning how insurance companies handle claims from the inside, he felt a calling to represent people who had been injured rather than the corporation who try every tactic to avoid fairly compensating them. With this valuable experience, he can now use the insurance company’s own tactics against them, attacking their strategies, and building a case to maximize the compensation of his clients.
Medical Malpractice Insurance Investigations | Making a Recorded Statement
When someone is injured in a medical malpractice incident, they are often asked by the insurance carrier for the responsible party to give a recorded statement on their claims of what occurred. We are often asked by our clients whether it is a good idea to give these recorded statements. The answer is always no. While you may think this will help your case, the exact opposite is true. Insurance companies will use trained claims examiners who know to ask questions in a way that can lead to misleading and vague answers that could harm your case in the future. Don’t ever give a recorded statement to an insurance carrier without a lawyer present. There’s nothing that can be gained from this and it can only harm your case. You have no obligation to give such a statement.
