One of the Greatest Misconceptions of Medical Malpractice Cases

Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Apr 01, 2015 | 0 Comments

An alarming number of people who are the victims of doctor malpractice, hospital malpractice or medical malpractice do nothing about seeking compensation for their injuries and damages, many of whom suffer quite significant injuries that are of a permanent nature.

Perhaps one of the main reasons that these people do nothing about pursuing the responsible party is because they realize that these cases are very costly to develop and they have little or no money, so they feel that they cannot go after a doctor or hospital that has far greater resources.

Medical malpractice cases are handled by lawyers on a contingency fee basis which means that the attorney or law firm retains a percentage of the monetary award through a settlement or after a trial. If there is no recovery then the client owes the lawyer nothing for a fee.

Still other people may think that medical malpractice cases are very expensive to develop and they do not have money to pay all of the experts that will be needed to properly present their case. Most, if not all, experienced medical malpractice attorneys will advance all of your costs. A large percentage of these lawyers, assuming the rules of that particular state allow for it, will agree not to seek reimbursement of those costs if there is no recover, especially when you have a very good case with a potential for a large recovery.

If you or someone you know has been injured through doctor malpractice, hospital malpractice or medical malpractice you should contact an experienced malpractice attorney immediately.
