Finding the Right Malpractice Attorney

Winning a medical malpractice case takes a specific set of skills and experience. Verdicts in medical malpractice cases are often large and doctors, hospitals, and their insurers are going to fight tooth and nail to avoid losing a medical malpractice case. The attorney you choose to represent you can make a difference not only in whether you prevail, but in the amount that you recover.

Some things you can do to find the right attorney include the following:

Look for an attorney with experience in malpractice cases. Go online and research firms in your area that handle malpractice cases. While this may be your first experience with medical malpractice, it should not be the first time your lawyer takes a medical malpractice case. You need a lawyer who handles medical malpractice on a daily basis. Lawyers with experience in these types of cases know what it takes to prove a complex medical malpractice case.

Look for an attorney who is local. An attorney in your area who handles malpractice cases is a wise choice. You will be able to get to your meetings easily if your attorney is local. A local attorney will also be familiar with all local rules and procedures, which will smooth the way for your case.

Look for an attorney with trial experience. While many medical malpractice cases settle before trial, you want to have an attorney who knows how to aggressively present your case at trial should that become necessary.
