One increasingly common type of case that we encounter is for medical malpractice. A medical malpractice case involves a doctor or nurse who has breached the standard of care for their industry and in doing so, injured a patient. It’s extremely important to make sure when hiring a medical malpractice attorney that you have someone who has extensive experience with these types of cases.
What to Look for When Hiring a Medical Malpractice Attorney
You want a medical malpractice attorney with experience because these cases are very difficult to work up and require a lot of expert witnesses to make your case. You want to make sure that you have an attorney who has demonstrated his or her ability to take these cases and achieve successful results. At The Gunnels Law Firm, we regularly handle personal injury cases. We want to make sure that our clients get the best possible resolutions.
Another issue that you want to make sure you address is to make sure you have an attorney that knows the insurance system, how it works and how to get the best possible result for you. I spent many years representing insurance companies before switching sides to begin representing injured individuals in personal injury cases. I have defended medical malpractice cases. Now, I can put the knowledge I have of those types of cases to use for my clients to help them achieve the best possible result.
Finally, always make sure that you have an attorney who has demonstrated that he or she will take cases all the way through to trial when necessary. Most cases settle before trial, but in some instances insurance companies will not issue fair offers and an attorney is required to take a case to trial. Unfortunately, there are a lot of attorneys around who simply will not go to trial. These attorneys are never going to get the best possible offers and resolutions for their clients because the insurance company know that they’re simply going to take whatever offer they can get, even if it’s not a fair one. At The Gunnels Law Firm, we spend a significant amount of our time trying cases and putting them to juries to help our clients get fair compensation.
