When you or someone you love has been injured because of medical negligence, you will likely have a lot of questions. You may even be contacted by insurance companies or other doctors who will try to explain that there was nothing more they can do. You may be approached with paperwork to sign when you have not even had time to think about what has happened.
If you suspect that the doctors, nurses, or other healthcare professionals were responsible for the injury by acting negligently or not providing the level of care expected of them, it is imperative that you contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible. There are several things you should look for when choosing an attorney to help you.
Things to Consider Before Choosing an Attorney
Medical malpractice cases are very complex. In some states, such as Texas, the laws that govern healthcare facilities limit the time you have to make a claim and there are very specific steps that need to occur in order to bring a claim against the facility or the healthcare professional. The process can often be long and arduous, so you must ensure that the attorney you hire is experienced in winning cases like yours and that they are well versed in the medical malpractice laws in your state.
In addition to their experience, make sure that the attorney you choose is compassionate and straightforward with you and helps you understand what to expect as you move forward with your legal battle. You should feel comfortable with them and have open and clear communication throughout the entire process.
Finally, do your homework. There are many attorneys who are licensed to practice law, but they may have never filed a medical malpractice case. Make sure you understand whether or not they have won cases like yours. A great place to start would be to check their website for testimonials from former clients, see what kind of awards, if any, they have won for their work, and read reviews from other websites.
