Medical Malpractice

You Can Rely On Our Experience In Medical Malpractice Cases

Medical malpractice cases are complex. Because doctors and dentists are specialists, it can be difficult to know when a medical professional has made an error. In some cases, the injured patient may not even have been awake during the procedure that caused injury. In addition, hospitals and doctors are often unwilling to share information voluntarily with a patient. Health care facilities and medical professionals do not willingly reveal their mistakes. They often remain silent to protect their reputation and bottom line.
For injured patients, it adds up to a difficult case, even though medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S., according to researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine. That is why you need an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer on your side after experiencing injury due to medical error. But how do you know which lawyer is right for you? Below you can find information on what to look for in a medical malpractice attorney. If you prefer, you can also contact Licatesi Law Group, LLP, to schedule a free consultation, and we would be happy to discuss our qualifications, your case, and how we can help.

What To Look For In A Medical Malpractice Attorney

We have found the following to be beneficial characteristics of a medical malpractice law firm:

  • Experience: Obtaining information in medical malpractice cases can be difficult. You want someone who has practical knowledge of the legal procedures involved and how to obtain information, including the ability to seek out qualified medical experts.
  • Honesty: Unfortunately, not every case can be pursued, even if you were injured after receiving medical care. Your attorney should be upfront about the process, what you can expect, and whether your case has merit.
  • Resources: Medical malpractice cases are often lengthy. Your lawyer should be an established medical malpractice attorney who understands the resources it will take to fully pursue a fair settlement.
  • Trust/compatibility: You will need to have an open, communicative and trusting relationship with your lawyer throughout your case. It is important that your lawyer cares about your health and well-being, not just obtaining a quick settlement.
