When you or a loved one suffers an injury due to possible medical malpractice, who you choose to represent in your case may be the most critical decision you will make. Medical malpractice cases can be arduous and complicated, so it is essential to find a skilled attorney. It is important to do sufficient research and select a medical malpractice lawyer with many years of experience in medical negligence legal work. Here are some tips for finding the right malpractice attorney for your case.
Where to Find the Right Attorney
Medical malpractice is a very specified area of law that requires a certain degree of experience. If you have been hurt due to a medical error, you will need to hire a medical malpractice attorney. You may have to contact several different firms to find someone to handle your case. Luckily, many initial consultations are free, so you do not have to worry about committing right away. Take advantage of online resources, such as the National Bar Association, to find medical malpractice attorneys in your area. You can also try to talk to your insurance company to see if they have any recommendations for local attorneys.
Experience with Your Case
It is vital to find a lawyer with enough relevant experience to handle your case. Medical malpractice is more complicated than a typical personal injury case. They often involve a lot of science as you need to show what the doctor did to cause the injury. In medical malpractice cases, you must be able to prove the doctor acted unreasonably in comparison to what an average doctor would have done in the situation. Your attorney will need to work with medical professionals to determine what happened. So, you need to make sure that you choose a lawyer that has experience with similar cases.
Questions to Ask Potential Attorneys
Now that you have found a few potential attorneys to represent your case, you’re bound to have a few questions to ask them. Some possible questions include:
- How many medical malpractice cases have you handled?
- What percentages of cases to trial?
- What types of medical malpractice do you have experience with?
- What are your principles of client service?
Be sure to pay close attention to the specificity of their responses. You are looking for a level of detail that shows knowledge of the medical malpractice field instead of broad general answers.
