When a person has been injured as the result of negligence committed by a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional, it leads to physical, emotional, and mental upheaval. It is important for someone who is struggling to determine how much life has changed after an injury, for both himself and his or her family, to find the right medical malpractice attorney in order to fight for his or her interests while he focuses on recovery and leading the best life possible.
What many people do not think about when considering an attorney is that this person is going to be the one to portray the severity of the harm and how it negatively has impacted every aspect of the patient’s life. It is crucial to know that the attorney is going to answer all questions, provide the information necessary to make informed decisions, and respond quickly to telephone calls or other communications, but also take the time to learn the myriad of ways in which the injury has negatively impacted the person’s life. In essence, it is critical to feel that the attorney is someone that you can trust to fight as hard as possible to get the best outcome.
There are many different ways to find the right attorney, but first and foremost, it is necessary to find a medical malpractice attorney with the right experience. Medical negligence cases are complex and require the ability to uncover the critical evidence necessary to demonstrate that the healthcare provider breached the applicable standard of care and retain the medical expert who can testify about that standard and how the medical professional breached his or her duty of care. One of the things that a person who has been injured, or whose loved one has been injured, due to medical malpractice can do is look into an attorney on the Internet. At Stern Law, PLLC, we believe in providing as much information as possible to ensure that clients, potential clients, and people merely seeking answers have the resources that they need to determine what happens next.
Before going to a meeting with an attorney it is a good idea to prepare a list of questions, which might include the following:
- How long has the attorney practiced law?
- Whether the attorney focuses on medical malpractice cases?
- How many cases has the attorney taken to trial?
- What were the results of these trials? Despite the impression that many people have about juries handing down large verdicts in these types of cases, the truth is that the decision often is in favor of the defendants, but it is important for a medical malpractice attorney to have a clear ability to succeed at trial.
- What is a typical process for a medical malpractice case?
- What is the analysis that goes into settling a case versus taking the case to trial?
- How does the attorney identify and retain the right medical expert for a case?
- What is the attorney’s philosophy for communicating with his or her clients?
- Who actually handles the case?
In setting up a first consultation, the goal is to determine if the attorney is the right one to best advocate for the injuries of the person who was harmed. This means that, in addition to the evaluation the facts of the case that any good medical malpractice attorney is going to do, it is crucial to figure out whether or not it would be easy to entrust the responsibility of securing the financial resources that a negligence victim and his or her family needs to recover and move forward from the devastating injury.
