Our law firm receives almost daily calls from potential clients seeking an attorney to assist them with a medical malpractice claim. Unfortunately, we probably reject 99% of these cases. Why? There are a myriad of reasons, including problems with liability, problems proving that the malpractice caused the plaintiff’s injuries, or the plaintiff’s damages might not be significant enough to justify filing a lawsuit.
Medical malpractice cases are maybe the most difficult type of lawsuit to litigate. The attorney litigating the case must not only be well versed in this area of the law, they must also become knowledgeable in the area of medicine involved.
Many potential clients think that just because they had a bad result after seeing a doctor, they have a good medical malpractice claim. Nothing could actually be further from the truth. A bad result does not necessarily mean there was bad medicine.
