Questions to Ask Your Medical Malpractice Attorney

Philadelphia and Allentown, Pennsylvania and New Jersey

If you have been seriously injured because of a doctor’s negligence or mistake, you may be considering hiring a medical malpractice attorney in Philadelphia. Unfortunately, not all medical malpractice lawyers are equal. Choosing a mediocre or inexperienced lawyer can compromise the outcome of your case.

You deserve a medical malpractice lawyer in Philadelphia with the skill, experience, and resources necessary to pursue the full measure of compensation you are entitled to.

How to Evaluate a Medical Malpractice Lawyer

The best way to evaluate an attorney before you hire them is to set up a free initial consultation. These consultations are designed to give you a better feel for an attorney’s qualifications, and how they can help you.

If you have never hired an attorney before, you might not know exactly which questions to ask during your consultation. Below are a few examples:

  • How long have you been practicing medical malpractice law?
  • Which bar associations or professional organizations do you belong to?
  • Is my case similar to other medical malpractice cases you have handled?
  • How many medical malpractice lawsuits do you settle each year on average?
  • How many cases do you take to trial every year?
  • Do you think I have a case?
  • Which factors will work in my case’s favor, and which will work against me?
  • What are my chances of settling prior to a trial?
  • Do you work on a contingency fee basis?
  • What types of medical experts can you hire for my case?
  • Who will be my day-to-day contact?

As you ask these questions, look for open and honest answers from the lawyer. A good medical malpractice lawyer in Philadelphia will patiently explain the laws that apply in your case, and give you a practical assessment of what to expect from the legal process. They will also give you an honest opinion as to whether or not pursuing your medical malpractice claim would be worthwhile.
