Very few medical negligence cases are simple or clear cut. Often a lawyer will have to collect a great deal of information, such as hospital records and expert reports, before he or she can tell the patient whether there is a good case. Even then, after a case begins and opposing medical opinions are presented, the case becomes more difficult as the court has to choose which medical opinions to accept.
