Less than half of all medical malpractice claims make it to trial because the judicial system dismisses the claims. Once your case gets dismissed, no judge will take the time out of their busy schedule to hear your claim.
You only get one chance to do it right, so you need the right medical malpractice attorney on your team from the very beginning.
Continue reading to learn how to find a malpractice lawyer who is going to do everything in their power to help you through this tough time.
Do Your Research
The first thing you must do is come up with a list of lawyers who meet your specific needs and specialize in medical malpractice cases. Make sure you thoroughly vet each lawyer on the list.
Call the Bar Association in your area to get started. The Bar Association will be able to point you in the right direction. Their directory can help you to narrow down the list of lawyers based on their specialty, their ratings, and their location. Once you have a list of attorneys, you can check that they are eligible to practice law in Florida.
If your primary care physician is not involved in the lawsuit, you can ask them for legal recommendations. The same can be said for your health insurance company. They have probably worked with a malpractice attorney or two in the past and can recommend someone who will be able to help you.
You will also want to ask your family and friends about their experiences with these attorneys. You won’t want to work with someone who treated your loved ones poorly in the past.
Meet With Several Candidates
Once you have a list, set up a meeting with the top contenders. You don’t want to rely solely on your research to make your final decision. Meeting in person allows you to get a feel for the type of person you’re going to be working with for the foreseeable future.

Picking The Best One
When it comes to choosing a medical malpractice lawyer, you need to pick the best one. Ideally, the best attorney for your case is the one who:
- Wants to get started immediately
- Knows what they are talking about
- Has tons of successful medical malpractice cases
- Reassures you that they will do whatever they can to help you
Always go with your gut! If you have a bad feeling, odds are that they are not the right attorney for your case.
