Choosing A Medical Malpractice Attorney
Fighting Medical Malpractice in Florida
Falling victim to medical malpractice is a painful and traumatic experience. Patients rightly put a large amount of trust in doctors, and when that trust is violated, the results can be permanently damaging. Proving medical negligence or medical malpractice can be difficult. If you have been the victim of medical malpractice, finding a lawyer to represent your best interests is of the highest importance. The Law Offices of Michael Barszcz, M.D., J.D., in Orlando, Florida, pride themselves on the quality and skill of their medical malpractice case history.
What Should You Look For?
Some of the key characteristics you should look when selecting a medical malpractice attorney:
- Medical expertise
- Verdict settlements
- Individual care and attention
To establish medical malpractice, you must prove that a health care provider deviated from professional health standards. To prove this, expert medical testimony must be given. An experienced medical malpractice attorney understands the finer points of complex medical-legal litigation and great knowledge of the medical condition in question could mean the difference between winning and losing a case. Lawyers with both a J.D. and M.D., are uncommon and such unique qualifications may offer you a significant advantage over an attorney without any medical experience.
Medical malpractice suits are complicated cases and require lawyers with extensive experience. Particularly given the range of injuries that can be sustained in botched medical procedures, hiring a lawyer who has dealt with these types of cases and the medical community is key. Medical malpractice can occur at a doctor’s office, the hospital, an ER bed, and even a nursing home. Shouldn’t you demand a lawyer with experience in all of these types of medical malpractice or negligence cases
One way of gauging whether a law firm has a chance of success in your case is by looking at their past cases. A law firm should be open about its past verdicts and also about the awards and settlements involved in those cases. Michael Barszcz has recovered more than $100 million dollars in medical malpractice cases for his clients. If a law firm isn’t open about its prior winning medical malpractice verdicts and settlements, you should probably avoid them and look for a more proven firm. However, it is important to remember that past results are no guarantee of future success.
If you’ve suffered from medical malpractice, your trust in professionals may be shaken, so getting the runaround from a law office may only exacerbate the pain you’ve already experienced. A law firm should be large enough to provide you with all of the resources you need but not so large that it cannot provide you with the individual care and attention you deserve.
