Frequently Asked Questions
Norman Younker and the medical malpractice lawyers at Younker Hyde Macfarlane in Salt Lake City are here to answer your questions regarding negligence on the part of health care professionals.
Why Should I File a Lawsuit?
Clients often come into the office feeling guilty for considering a lawsuit. We want you to know up front that there is nothing wrong with investigating whether you or someone you love received negligent care. The standard of care for medical professionals is set to protect patients. In addition to achieving compensation for the loss or injury suffered by you or a family member, pursuing medical malpractice lawsuits also helps prevent careless mistakes from happening again. Those to blame for your suffering should be held accountable and kept from harming other patients in the future.
What Can I Expect from the Firm?
When you choose Younker Hyde Macfarlane, we use the very best resources to conduct a thorough investigation. We are going to organize a thorough analysis of the care you received, and if we are satisfied that we can prove that medical mistakes were made, we will pursue the case. Our extensive resources include a list of specialists in pediatrics, neurology, oncology, nurses, practitioners, and economists. Our entire team will work diligently to understand every aspect of your care, and to determine if your injury or disease could have been prevented.
How Much Does it Cost?
Coming to us for help will not cost you anything unless we choose to take your case. If we believe that malpractice occurred, and we continue with your case, there will be no charges until we get a recovery fee at the end of your case. If you have any questions about the cost of representation, please address them during your initial consultation.
