|What should I consider when selecting a medical malpractice lawyer?|
I recently spoke to a man in Aiken who had been the victim of a medical malpractice event at a local hospital. One of his first questions was, “How do I go about finding an attorney to represent me in a medical malpractice action?” The response to that is that medical malpractice case are different from other types of personal injury actions, primarily because medical malpractice cases require expert testimony. In order to file any type of lawsuit in South Carolina, you have to actually find a doctor who has practiced in the field in which you are alleging your negligence. You have to find a doctor who can actually give an affidavit that states that the hospital or the other physician breached the standard of care.
You want to find an attorney who has experience in handling medical malpractice cases. You want to find an attorney who has developed relationships with medical experts. You want to find an attorney who has the resources to see a medical malpractice case through. Medical malpractice cases are very expensive to prosecute. You have to pay a doctor to go through the process with you, basically, and this can cost a lot. It’s a time-consuming and complicated process, as well, so you want to have a trial attorney who has handled medical malpractice cases in the past, who has filed lawsuits on medical malpractice cases in the past, and who has gone to jury trials on medical malpractice cases.
If anyone out there has been the victim of medical malpractice, please give us a call. We would be more than happy to talk to you.
