Personal Injury Attorney: Emergency Room Drama

Aug 10, 2008
If you or someone close to you has suffered an injury by a doctor, nurse, or someone in the medical field, you need to call a lawyer immediately. Chances are good that you are going to file a lawsuit for medical malpractice. A personal injury lawyer is what you need.

Personal injury lawyers can get started your case when you're in the hospital. They want to get your case started as soon as possible. There is no reason for you to suffer longer than you already have.

An experienced lawyer can tell if the case is worthwhile from the first contact with the client. If it is not, the client should be informed immediately. In some states it is standard protocol that the attorney confers with a certified doctor to determine if the case has any merit.

Real medical malpractice was born the behavior of negligence that results in injury. Often, there may be "professional misconduct", but no residual damage. These cases are weak.

Juries usually favor cases that show lifetime damage. Matters of opinion are not considered. If there is no permanent damage involved usually there is no case.

Most medical malpractice cases for the plaintiff are handled on a contingent fee basis. The fees are paid after the case is settled. The fees are generally anywhere from 33 1/3 to 50%.

Medical malpractice lawyers will usually inform you that no offers will be made until the lawsuit has been filed and all essential depositions have been taken. Most medical malpractice suits will go through a trial through the discovery process before there is an actual court trial.

Most personal injury lawyers offer a sliding scale of fees. If this is the case the amount that the lawyer requests depends on how the case advances. For example, if your case goes to trial, the lawyer gets 40% and if it goes to appeal when he is 50%.

Some states have statutes capping fees in medical malpractice trial. These charges are a matter between you and your lawyer. All costs must be agreed with a contract before the case is started.

Some states will allow an attorney to advance fees to his client. This is a good deed gesture on behalf of the lawyer who knows how much his client has suffered. The attorney will also finance the necessary expense of investigation and litigation.
