Hiring an Attorney for a Medical Malpractice Case

HIRING AN ATTORNEY

It is important to select the right attorney for the case. Medical malpractice is a highly specialized field. Although one may be a very competent trial attorney, not every attorney has the experience or resources to handle a malpractice case.

It is important to thoroughly question any lawyer you interview. You should ask about his or her years of experience handling this type of case, the percentage of his or her practice that is devoted to medical malpractice cases, the number of malpractice cases he or she actually tried, and whether the firm employs doctors or nurses to assist in preparing this type of case. These are common-sense questions to ask any lawyer holding him or herself out as a medical malpractice lawyer.

Typically, there are certain firms in any locale that are recognized in the legal community as having a strong background and expertise in the area of medical malpractice. One way to locate a suitable attorney is to get recommendations from lawyers you may know who do not handle these types of cases. It is a good idea to interview two or three attorneys before hiring a malpractice lawyer.
