Were You the Victim of Medical Malpractice? How to Select an Attorney to Review Your Case
If you suspect that you received less than adequate medical care, were
misdiagnosed or experienced delays in treatment that worsened your condition
or left you with permanent injury or damage, you may have been the victim
of medical negligence or malpractice. If the result has impaired your
quality of life, prevented you from returning to work or other serious
outcome, consulting a malpractice lawyer is wise. But how do you select
an attorney to review your case?
Here are five tips for choosing a medical malpractice attorney:
#1 Look for an Experienced Medical Negligence Lawyer
One of the first things to check for while researching a potential lawyer is years of experience. You want an advocate who has handled hundreds of cases, has experience with cases similar to yours and that has been practicing for many years. You don’t want an attorney fresh out of school. You do want a lawyer that specializes in personal injury law and devotes a fair share of their practice to medical malpractice cases.

#2 Look for a Lawyer with a Great Track Record
Another important thing to consider is the attorney’s success rate. They may have lots of cases under their belt, but if the majority of these aren’t wins, you should pass on them. You want a lawyer with a high success rate and who can demonstrate that they have a track record of recovering fair compensation for clients in similar circumstances.

#3 Look for Impressive Client Testimonials
In addition to experience and success, you want a medical malpractice lawyer who treats his clients well. One of the best ways to assess this is to check for quality client testimonials. You don’t just want to take their word for it either – you should look to unbiased third party sites such as Avvo.com and Martindale.com to ensure you’re seeing a bona fide review.
Attorney Rob Kornfeld has rave reviews by former clients who have been thrilled with the service he provided and the results he obtained for their malpractice cases.
#4 Look for a Lawyer Who Is Responsive and Accessible
In addition to experience, track record and verified testimonials, you want a medical negligence attorney who will take your calls, answer your questions and make themselves available when you need them. It can be endlessly frustrating to have your calls shuffled to voice mail and never returned. That’s the last thing you want when you’re already dealing with pain or illness!
Attorney Rob Kornfeld will personally answer your calls and emails because he has been where you are now – a victim of a serious injury – and knows the importance of responsiveness from your lawyer.
#5 Look for a Lawyer with Tenacity
In addition to all these other traits, you want a medical malpractice lawyer who is ready to fight on your behalf to get the best compensation for your circumstances. You don’t want a wishy-washy advocate who is only willing to write letters to the insurance companies. Instead, you want a strong advocate who isn’t scared to push for the best result for you – even if that means taking it to trial.
Attorney Rob Kornfeld has been fighting for medical malpractice clients for over 30 years and winning substantial settlements for victims of medical negligence of all types.
