When you or a loved one has been seriously injured due to medical malpractice or any kind of doctor mistake or negligence, it may be a wise choice to consider working with an experienced medical malpractice attorney. The key is to ask the right guiding questions so that you are connecting with the most experienced, professional lawyer for your individual case.

5 Essential Questions for Your Medical Malpractice Lawyer

It can be intimidating to hire a malpractice lawyer. If you have never worked with a lawyer before, it may be challenging to know which questions you should ask and what information will be most beneficial for your case.

Here are 5 essential questions which can help you on your way:

  • What timeframe do we have? In other words, is there a ‘statute of limitations’ we will need to comply with in this state?
  • When did you begin practicing medical malpractice law?
  • How is my case similar to another medical malpractice case you’ve handled?
  • Which factors will work in favor of my case and which will work against me?
  • Who will be my day-to-day contact person in this medical malpractice process?

When you are asking these questions, check for honest, open answers from the lawyer. A solid malpractice lawyer will take the time to listen to you and patiently explain which laws apply to your case. They can give you a very practical and determined assessment of how the legal process can proceed. In addition, they can give you a straightforward opinion about pursuing your medical malpractice claim.

In terms of medical malpractice, experience, resources and skill matter. Especially when pursuing the fair and just compensation your family deserves.  Ideally, you will want to have a free initial consultation. Meeting your medical malpractice lawyer in person can give you a stronger indicator for your attorney’s qualifications, success rates, and overall competence.
