4 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Medical Malpractice Attorney

After an injury, the process of finding the right medical malpractice lawyer to handle your case can seem intimidating. Chances are you have never needed a injury attorney before, so you might not know what set the best law firms apart.

In this blog, we’ll discuss a few questions you can ask to find out if a lawyer has the qualifications, resources, and personality to handle your case.

Read on to learn four questions to ask before hiring a medical malpractice attorney:

  1. What Is Your Fee Structure?

 You should avoid hiring any law firm that offers to take on your case for a low flat rate. Firms with that kind of fee structure are often “settlement mills” that care more about the number of cases they handle than the quality of representation they provide. These practices are also unlikely to devote additional time and resources to your case if issues arise. 

  1. Do You Get Many Referrals from Other Lawyers?

 The best attorneys make a name for themselves among their colleagues.  Other attorneys  recommend them when clients are in need of legal services that the firm does not provide. 

  1. How Will You Gather Evidence of Liability and Damages?

 Look for a lawyer who has a vast network of legal resources that you wouldn’t have access to otherwise. This network might be composed of medical specialists, economists, and vocational experts from a variety of disciplines. 

  1. Have You Resolved Cases That Are Similar to Mine?

 Every medical malpractice claim may be different, but the same or similar strategies often apply when proving negligence. A reputable attorney will never promise to achieve a particular outcome.  Legal proceedings can be unpredictable.  The lawyer whom you hire should be able to talk confidently about the possible ways to build your claim.
