Our service is provided as a free service for victims of medical malpractice throughout the United States. The medical malpractice lawyer you hire will work out the financial details and the extent of the representation with you if a medical malpractice claim can be made on your behalf.
Just like there are “good” doctors and “bad” doctors, there are good medical malpractice lawyers and some not-so-good medical malpractice lawyers. Before you hire a medical malpractice attorney on your own behalf, you should ask questions about his/her experience and qualifications.
Just because the lawyer’s website says that he handles medical malpractice claims is not enough. Ask the lawyer you may be interested in hiring questions such as whether the lawyer himself will handle your claim or if he will merely refer your case to another lawyer, whether other lawyers in his law firm will also be responsible to represent you, whether the lawyer or his law firm may potentially have a conflict of interest in representing you because of the health care providers that may be sued and/or the claims that may be made on your behalf, whether you will be responsible for any costs or expenses if the claim is ultimately unsuccessful (read the retainer agreement carefully!), etc.
It is also important that you meet with your medical malpractice lawyer before you hire him so that you can tell him in person all of the facts of your claim as you understand them and so that you feel comfortable with the lawyer and the terms of the representation. Make sure that you will be comfortable with the lawyer’s style (just like it’s important to be comfortable with your doctor’s style) – if you are looking for a lawyer who will consult with you each time a decision must be made regarding your case, then you may not be comfortable with a lawyer who insists on making most decisions without consulting you (all major decisions should be discussed between the lawyer and the client before the decisions are made unless the client and lawyer agree otherwise).
You usually get only one opportunity to bring your medical malpractice claim so make sure you give it your best effort and proper attention. The medical malpractice lawyer you hire usually handles your medical malpractice claim based on an agreed-upon contingency basis (that is, the lawyer will receive a set percentage of any amounts recovered) so it will be in his best interest, too, to give your claim his best effort and proper attention. However, if you ever have any question or problem with the status of your medical malpractice claim or your attorney’s handling of your claim, you owe it to yourself and to your lawyer to promptly discuss your concerns with your lawyer to make sure that there are no long-term misunderstandings or ill-will between you and your lawyer.
