Frequently Asked Questions: Medical Malpractice
I want to sue my doctor for medical malpractice. What is involved in doing that?
Medical malpractice cases are probably the most difficult and most expensive cases we handle. Even if you have all of the facts on your side, they are still extremely difficult to win. For those reasons, we have a very rigorous screening process for these cases. Generally, unless a person has suffered a very severe injury, such as paralysis or loss of limb, or wrongful death, we do not take these cases.
Because we work strictly on a contingency basis, we will never charge you fees if you do not recover damages.
