How Do I Know If I Have a Medical Malpractice Case?
There are many different types of signs that patients can use to identify a potential medical malpractice case. If you recognize one of those signs and suspect that your doctors or the hospital you were in committed medical malpractice and caused serious injuries, you should get all of the information you can. For example, there are different statutes of limitations for medical malpractice cases depending on where the incident took place. In other words, you only have a certain amount of time after the medical malpractice incident to file a medical malpractice lawsuit depending on where it happened. And the time limits are extended for children - this can include negligent prenatal care to a mom that harmed her child.
Another thing you should do is start looking for a medical malpractice lawyer that can best represent you. In most cases, this will be the first time a person is looking for an attorney to represent them, let alone a medical malpractice attorney. Where do you start? Should you choose one of the lawyers you see on TV commercials or who advertises on the side of a bus?
What kind of credentials do they have?
Will that lawyer have the experience and resources to properly investigate your case?
What will the jury think if you go to court with a TV lawyer? Will they be skeptical of you and your case? You may not know this, but the judges know who the big TV lawyers are, and their reputation is generally less serious than specialists.
