Choosing a Medical Malpractice Lawyer

There are several factors to consider when choosing a medical malpractice lawyer. First of all, find out if there is a contingent fee, some lawyers will ask for it and others will take your case without a fee until you win the case, at which point they are paid. Listen to what your lawyer has to tell you – is it better to go to court or press for a settlement, and on the other hand, make sure your lawyer will listen to your wishes. One o
of the other major things to find out is if the lawyer is specialized in medical malpractice, find out his or her success record and what level of familiarity the lawyer has with your specific case. All in all, if you have a lawyer you trust with whom you can communicate honestly and who will only expect to be paid after an eventual win in court or via settlement, then you have done an excellent job. Don't hesitate to ask friends for suggestions or ask your lawyer to give you a reference whom you can contact to find out a bit out his or her track record.
