Medical Malpractice

5 Things to Look for in an Expert Malpractice Lawyer

In a perfect world, medical care would heal the patient with no ramifications. However, we don’t live in a perfect world. Not only do doctors and surgeons not always get it right, but sometimes they can make the situation worse.

Medical malpractice applies to a wide range of behaviors and situations, ranging from failure to diagnose a disease properly to leaving surgical implements inside a patient after a procedure is over. In all situations, you’ll need to work with an expert malpractice lawyer, but how do you choose the right one? 

Here are five things to look for when searching for an expert malpractice lawyer.

  1. Area of Focus

Too often, medical malpractice is lumped in with other types of personal injury. While it does fall under personal injury law, the fact is that successfully taking a medical malpractice case to trial is very different from taking a slip-and-fall injury case to trial. Make sure the lawyer you choose has years of experience focusing on medical malpractice cases, as well as other types of personal injury cases.

  1. Medical Knowledge

It’s not enough for an attorney to have experience with medical malpractice cases. They also should have medical knowledge. This is gained in several ways, including working on other medical malpractice cases, conducting medical research, speaking with expert witnesses, and more. 

  1. A Winning Track Record 

How many medical malpractice cases has the attorney handled? While there’s nothing inherently wrong with hiring an attorney with few wins under their belt, a track record of success shows that they can and do win cases for their clients.

  1. A Supportive Team

No matter the level of experience or knowledge an attorney possesses, they cannot do everything themselves. An expert medical malpractice attorney will have a team to support their efforts.

  1. They’re Accessible

Finally, make sure that any malpractice lawyer you’re considering is committed to being accessible when you need them. It does little good to hire an attorney only to find that they’re too busy with other cases to have time to speak with you about yours.

Grewer Law Group can help you get the justice you deserve. However, not all attorneys have the same skills, knowledge, and experience, so use the tips above to help compare your options and find the attorney who will best represent you in court.
