Medical Malpractice Lawyer Tips  

    If you are planning on suing a medical practitioner, it is of utmost importance that you get a lawyer who has suitable experience in malpractice law. The lawyer, retained by you, should have the knowledge to wade through the bureaucracy and red tape in order to get the full report.


     A good medical malpractice lawyer will always ask you details about your medical history. This will include details of your previous doctors, specialists and the sort of treatment you received. The lawyer will also ask you to give a timeline of all the events that brought you to the point of wanting to a file medical malpractice suit.

     The lawyer will always seek medical opinions from other doctors before he files the medical malpractice case in court. This is to make sure that the case is worthy enough, and that the injury you sustained was because of negligence on the part of the doctor you want to sue.

     The medical malpractice lawyer would have to prove four things in order to take the case. Our Medical Malpractice lawyer tips are as follows:

  • The doctor had an obligation to take care of the patient
  • The doctor failed to act in the best interest of the patient
  • This lack of act has adverse ramifications on the patient
  • The patient suffered a loss which could be either physical, mental or both

     There is a growing trend in medical malpractice of many lawyers themselves being former doctors. This gives an edge over other medical malpractice lawyers as they have in-depth knowledge as to how a medical procedure should have been done and what the outcome of the procedure should have been. They also understand the medical jargon and terminologies.

     In order to get the right medical malpractice lawyer, make sure your lawyer specializes in medical malpractice law, take time to look at the lawyer's history and check how many cases he has actually won.

    Once you are satisfied with the above, make sure you settle the payment bit as many medical malpractice lawyers charge a large percentage of the settlement you win as their payment. It is invariably better to hire the medical malpractice lawyer on contingency basis as he will work harder. This means that he will get paid only if he manages to win the medical malpractice case for you.
