Tips for Choosing an Ohio Medical Malpractice Attorney April 28, 2012.
If you’ve been injured or made sick because of a doctor’s mistake, you might be entitled to compensation through a claim. Your first step is seeking out an Ohio personal injury attorney.
Hiring an attorney is a big step, and one that you should put time and research into. All lawyers are not the same; some will do a better job than others when representing you in a malpractice case. There are a few things to consider when hiring a medical malpractice attorney:
- check with your local bar association to see if an attorney is properly licensed and has a good record of honorable behavior;
- ask for referrals from friends, family and co-workers who have worked with personal injury lawyers; and
- be sure your attorney has experience and a good track record with medical malpractice. Malpractice is a unique area of law, so it helps if the lawyer you choose has an understanding of medical terminology and dealing with doctors.
Be sure to ask your attorney any questions you might have. Ask about the lawyer’s experience, rates, track record and other relevant topics. You should feel comfortable with your lawyer’s personality and presentation and feel that he or she is trustworthy.
