New Mexico Medical Malpractice Attorneys Curtis & Lucero

Three things to ask before hiring a medical malpractice attorney

If you have been harmed by a negligent doctor or have been sickened during a hospital stay, it is important for those responsible for your health (or not taking steps to secure it) to be held accountable. One way to achieve this is to pursue a medical malpractice claim.

However, before pursuing a claim, it is important to hire the right attorney to represent you. If you are like most people, you don’t have any experience with hiring an attorney. But in order to pick the right lawyer for your case, you have to ask the right questions. With that, we will highlight a few questions that should be a part of your initial meeting. 

Tell me about your experience handling malpractice cases – Indeed, this isn’t necessarily a question, but it is an open invitation for the lawyer to describe his or her experience and track record with litigating medical malpractice cases. The attorney should be able to tell you a compelling story about how he or she operates.

What are some of the weaknesses in my case? – Clients who call us want honest answers to their questions, and this should be no different for you. With that, an experienced medical malpractice attorney will not sugarcoat their opinion of the matter and will describe the weaknesses in your case.

How much of your practice is dedicated to malpractice cases? – It is also important to assess how much your potential lawyer handles medical malpractice cases. It is important to make this distinction so that you don’t have a car accident lawyer handing you medical malpractice case.
