Medical Malpractice: Hire a Trial Attorney

A large percent of medical malpractice cases are handled out of court. That is, the insurance company for the defendant medical provider will offer a settlement to the plaintiff instead of going through a trial. If the settlement negotiated by the medical malpractice attorney meets the needs of the plaintiff (the injured party), the case is then decided without the time-consuming and costly, emotional experience of a court trial.

But anyone who has been injured by medical malpractice should work with a personal injury attorney who specializes in medical malpractice and who is skilled in the courtroom, whether or not a trial takes place. Why? The medical malpractice attorney is strongest in all phases of the lawsuit when he or she is able to do each of the following:

Present a compelling lawsuit - The basic matter of proving a case depends on the medical malpractice attorney’s skills at sourcing expert witnesses, obtaining useful and powerful testimony in depositions and constructing a case that can convince both the judge and jury.

Communicate confidence about going to trial if necessary - When a lawyer files a lawsuit on behalf of a client, the defendants will immediately investigate that attorney’s win-loss record in court or if they tend to settle most cases out-of-court. The size of a pre-trial settlement is often influenced by this calculation.

Able to bear the weight of the case - A simple medical error can affect a patient for life: he or she may have a lingering physical impairment and ongoing medical costs, he might be unable to work, and the quality of his life can be significantly impacted. At least with fair compensation – achieved through the work of a qualified medical malpractice lawyer – the individual and his family will not suffer financial hardship as well.

The facts of all cases differ, of course. Also, the chemistry between the patient and his or her legal counsel has to allow for a good flow of important information between both parties. A confident, trial-experienced personal injury lawyer is often adept at client communications as well.
