How should I choose a medical malpractice attorney?

When a doctor, hospital, or other medical provider’s negligence has caused you harm, you need to be able to focus on getting your life back. You need to put your medical malpractice case in the hands of a lawyer who will do the best job for you. This can be one of the most important decisions of your life. So, how do you choose the right medical malpractice attorney for your case?

You need a lawyer who handles your specific type of medical malpractice.

Each type of injury from medical negligence is in its own sub-specialty. Your lawyer needs to have experience with your specific type of malpractice. For example, if you hire a lawyer who focuses only on medical malpractice, but your case stems from pharmacy malpractice, he or she might not have the necessary experience to handle your case.

The lawyer you choose should be able to communicate intelligently with relevant medical experts and know the appropriate questions to ask in your case.

At the Law Office of Jason R. Schultz, P.C., we handle all types of medical malpractice cases including:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to make a timely diagnosis
  • Delay in treatment
  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia mistakes
  • Prescription medication errors
  • Harm to a baby during the mother’s pregnancy and delivery

You need a lawyer who communicates with you.

While your lawyer will handle the heavy lifting, there are a few things you can do to give your case a better chance of success. For example, prospective lawyers should tell you if there is anything you need to bring to your first meeting with them.

At the Law Office of Jason R. Schultz, P.C., we provide a handy list of things for you to bring to the initial consultation. You should bring information about the people involved, the financial impact of the injury, the medical harm done to you, and your employment information.

We are proactive about communicating with you. Your time is valuable, and you will not be wasting it with repeated attempts to reach us. We respond to your questions, and we welcome your phone calls. When you are going through the stress of a medical malpractice claim, you need a legal team who will be there for you.

You need a lawyer who is successful, but not so busy he cannot give your case the attention it deserves.

We are passionate about helping people who have suffered as a result of medical negligence or malpractice. This passion, coupled with our knowledge and experience, has driven us to recover millions of dollars for our clients who have been harmed by medical malpractice. We win our cases by giving every case we receive the attention it deserves.

You need a lawyer with clear legal fees.

The costs of hiring a lawyer deter far too many people from hiring one when they need it. At the Law Office of Jason R. Schultz, P.C., we are clear about our legal fees.

We handle medical malpractice claims on a contingency fee basis. That means we do not charge you until we make a recovery on your claim. This provides two valuable benefits to you: you will not have to pay legal fees up front, and you know we believe in your case.
