What To Bring To A Legal Consultation

child accident claimsVictims of medical malpractice cases typically are awarded millions of dollars in compensation. Patients who have not received sufficient care and have suffered an injury or illness, as a result, may be entitled to significant financial compensation. Medical malpractice claims are incredibly complicated because they involve the healthcare industry which is a vast and powerful institution. There is legal help available if you need guidance with your unique case. An experienced lawyer can give you the legal advice to achieve the settlement that you deserve and nothing less.

Documents

Bring any documents that can support your personal injury claim. This includes things like legal documents, police reports that contain accident details, and a copy of incident reports that you have filed. Presenting these records can help the lawyer get a sense of how the accident happened and how complex the case may be. An Indianapolis, IN medical malpractice lawyer like one at Ward & Ward Law Firm can tell you, the more documents you can provide, the stronger your case will be.

Medical Bills and Records

A medical malpractice lawsuit cannot move forward without the medical records to support it. As one of the most complicated medical malpractice cases to work on, a lawyer needs to be able to have enough evidence to evaluate so that the case has a strong chance of success. Organize any documents that show your medical expenses such as bills, x-rays, copies of emails, and leave of absence letters written by the doctor. Be sure to bring all your medical records to the consultation. A lawyer will need to review them so that they can calculate damages that you could be eligible to recover.

Photographs

Photos of your injuries are also important pieces of evidence to include for your medical malpractice lawsuit. If you have photographs of your injuries, it greatly strengthens your case if you can also show a progression of how your health or condition has deteriorated. For example, if you have suffered bruising, you should take photos of your bruises over the course of several weeks to show how they change. The more photographs that you can show, the better you will be able to illustrate the nature and severity of your injuries.

Questions

Before you attend a consultation with a lawyer, be prepared to have a good idea of what you want to ask the lawyer. Make a list of questions and topics that you can ask the lawyer during your consultation. You want to make the most of your consultation and you don’t want to waste the lawyer’s time as well. The initial consultation is the time to glean as much information as possible about your personal injury case and what to expect in the coming months after you file one.

Handling a medical malpractice claim on your own is not advised. Hospitals and clinics are prepared for lawsuits and have much experience fighting them. Obtain a lawyer who has experience representing clients who have been victims of medical malpractice. If you would like to learn more about legal services, request a risk-free consultation now.

      “Mr. Glotzer represented me after I was involved in a car accident. I was badly injured,but the insurance company refused to offer me a reasonable settlement. I decided to find an attorney and decided to hire Josh.

      His law firm did a great job on my case. They were very responsive to all my questions and obtained a great resolution for me. I received way more money than was originally offered. I would recommend their firm to friends and family.”

      “Don’t try to deal with insurance companies on your own. They strung me along for almost two years before I gave the case to Glotzer & Leib. Josh and his team quickly obtained a settlement that netted me many times what the insurance company was offering. Thank You!”
