If you're worried about money, you can still find a Dallas medical malpractice lawyer who will be willing to work with you, provided that you have a good case. In order for you to determine whether or not you have a good case, you'll have to meet with an attorney. Fortunately, you can oftentimes do this at no cost and no risk.
Malpractice lawyers have specialized knowledge which enables them to effectively pursue lawsuits against doctors, healthcare facilities, nurses and dentists who are negligent in their duties to their patients. This area of practice requires expertise and, without it, it's unlikely that the attorney will be able to effectively argue your case in front of a jury. If you want to maximize your chances of winning your claim, it's important that you hire an attorney who has successfully argued medical malpractice cases in the past and who understands how best to represent their clients in front of a jury. In some cases, having an excellent medical malpractice attorney may enable you to get compensation in a much easier way than going to court.
There's no way to know how a jury will regard your case but, sometimes, if you have a good case and excellent representation, the doctor’s insurance company may offer to settle the claim out of court. By doing so, the insurance company avoids the costs of going to court and, instead, pays you a compromise amount based upon the award you're seeking. Make sure that you go through your attorney before accepting any settlement offers. It may be tempting to take a large check from the doctor’s insurance company but, if they are offering you a check to begin with, it's likely that they're doing so to avoid getting sued for even more money.
Malpractice attorneys have experience dealing with medical issues. You can share your medical information with them without having to worry about it being shared with any other legal professionals or other entities. There may be a point where you have to go to court to testify and, because of the sensitive nature of some of these cases, this can be very intimidating. Your attorney, however, will help you put together a case that may win you enough compensation to pay for the injuries you suffered as a result of medical negligence, as well as for the pain and suffering you were put through.
