If you have been harmed by a medical professional, it’s extremely important that you find the right attorney to handle your case. Medical malpractice cases are complex, and you will likely spend a lot of time working with your attorney. You will want to find an attorney with the appropriate knowledge and experience, as well as someone whose personality meshes with yours.
Medical malpractice occurs when a physician or other medical professional commits an act or an omission during the treatment of a patient that deviates from accepted norm of practice in the medical community and causes injury to a patient. Some examples of medical malpractice include a failure to diagnose, anesthesia errors, medication errors, surgical errors, childbirth injuries, and more.
If you determine that you have been harmed by a medical professional, you should hire a medical malpractice lawyer. You should look for a firm that is highly rated and has a great deal of experience in medical malpractice cases. You should ask about the attorney’ fees and how the costs are handled. You should ask about what portion of cases go to trial and what portion of cases settle. You should find someone who is convenient to your home. Also, you should determine if the attorney who you are meeting with is the one who will be handling most of the work on your case. Finally, when meeting the prospective attorney you should decide if he/she is someone who you could stand to spend time around – you will most likely be spending a lot of time with the attorney.
