How To Choose a Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Choosing a medical malpractice lawyer can be challenging. Not only do you have to deal with the repercussions of whatever medical malpractice issue you are facing; you also have to make a choice about who will best represent your interests and achieve the results you are looking for.

A Good Name Matters

All other factors aside, a very good place to start looking for lawyers is through the experience of friends and family you can trust. Remember, a medical malpractice attorney will have access to many personal details about your life. They will work closely with you to establish important facts and keep you up to date about the progress of your case. Choosing a malpractice lawyer with an excellent local reputation such as Eugene attorneys Veralrud and Fowler is the beginning of getting whole after a medical accident.

Checking Your Choices

Once you have a short list of possible lawyers to choose from, there are a few important questions to ask which can help you narrow the field. Search prospective firms online to see if they have handled any high-profile cases. Look on their websites for an idea of the sorts of clients and cases they regularly serve. Lawyers who regularly serve the general public often include helpful information and articles on their websites. Reading through this information can help guide your decision.

Call and Click Several Eugene Medical Attorneys

After you have checked the websites of your potential personal injury lawyer, it is time to start calling around to law firms. This can be intimidating. Don’t worry! Firms that deal in medical malpractice are aware of the sensitive and difficult nature of the work they do. They are ready and eager to answer your questions.

Some questions to ask: How much of your caseload is medical malpractice? What proportion of cases that you litigate go to trial rather than a settlement? What can you tell me about your fee agreements and case costs? Does the firm offer a “Contingency Fee” (which means they take payment as a proportion of the settlement or award)?

Make sure to mention any special needs or accommodations you might require at this point. Some firms specialize in serving clients with hearing difficulties or who might speak a language other than English at home, for instance. Be specific about your needs so your lawyer knows how to best serve you.

Face to Face with Your Chosen Medical Attorney

After you have reviewed some candidates, vetted their websites, and called their offices, it’s time to set up a face to face meeting. Make sure to have some details of your case handy to share with potential medical malpractice attorneys. Just because you have a hard time setting up a face to face meeting, don’t panic. Successful medical malpractice lawyers are very busy people. Luckily, they have a staff of competent support professionals who would be glad to listen to all your questions and concerns.
