It is important that you retain a trial lawyer experienced in medical malpractice litigation to handle your medical negligence claim. We are such a firm.
Medical malpractice cases are unlike car crashes or slip and fall claims for which there is so much advertising on billboards and television by attorneys who handle a high volume of cases like these. Most of the time, big-budget advertising law firms do not themselves handle medical malpractice because they take a long time to resolve and require significant monetary and time investment by the most experienced litigation attorneys. They refer them to lawyers like us who do.
Unlike car wreck cases, medical malpractice claims are rarely settled quickly. They almost always require expert testimony from medical doctors to be viable and most local doctors will not involve themselves at all in litigation against other doctors. We work with a wide variety of doctors in many medical specialties to screen our cases for viability and to work with us as experts if necessary.
We do not charge for an initial consultation on inquiries from prospective clients. Nor do we charge for the cost of initial medical screening of malpractice claims nor investigation, including securing your complete medical records on any cases we provisionally accept for that purpose. We offer all accepted clients the option of paying our fees and costs on a contingency fee basis; no recovery, no fees.
