What is the Attorney’s Professional Background?
This question gets to the professional education, training and affiliations of your attorney. Important sub questions include their education background, time of practice, and connections to any important groups or networks that might enhance their understanding and treatment of malpractice suits. It is important to know whether this firm and malpractice lawyer regularly handles malpractice cases and how many of those clients are assisted on a yearly basis. Since many malpractice attorneys only receive compensation on cases they win, a sufficient number of cases demonstrates that the attorney and firm is skilled at evaluating and winning cases and that they are familiar with the process and unique aspects of malpractice law. It is also important to find out whether the attorney has already represented cases similar to yours in any way. Experience is an excellent way to determine if this attorney will represent your case well.
What is the Attorney’s Assessment of Your Case?
After you’ve shared your information about your specific case with the malpractice lawyer, what was their reaction? Did the attorney feel you had a valid case? If the attorney does not feel vehemently about your ability to win a malpractice claim, it’s unlikely they will bring any more energy or vigor to your case. Pay attention to discussions of settlement discussions, too. It is possible the attorney might think you have a viable case, but the case could only return a small offer, which might not be worth your time and energy fighting. Our medical malpractice lawyers are skilled at assessing whether a case is likely to settle out of court or go to trial, so consider this in your decision as well.
