Selecting a Medical Malpractice Attorney

A medical malpractice attorney is a lawyer who handles cases involving improper care by a healthcare provider, such as a doctor, nurse, technician, hospital, nursing home or other medical professional.   medical malpracticeA medical malpractice attorney can advise you as to important questions you may have about your case, such as:

  • • What is the deadline (statute of limitations) that is applicable to my case?
  • • What is the likelihood of a recovery?
  • • How long may it take to pursue a medical malpractice claim?

Selecting the right medical malpractice attorney can be critical, given the complexity of these cases.  A medical malpractice attorney must not only know the law governing these cases, but must also be able to devote the time and resources to effectively investigate and prosecute the claim.

Keys to Selecting a Medical Malpractice Attorney

When selecting a medical malpractice attorney, you should consider the following:

  • • Does the attorney concentrate his/her practice just on handling medical negligence claims, or do they divide their time by handling various other types of cases?
  • • How many medical malpractice cases has the attorney handled?
  • • Does the attorney have the experience and resources needed to pursue the case in a manner that may maximize the potential recovery?
  • • Will the attorney personally handle your case or refer it to some other firm to handle?
  • • Will the medical malpractice attorney provide you with a free case consultation?
  • • Will the medical malpractice attorney charge a retainer or hourly fee?


Why you should consult a medical malpractice attorney without delay.

It is critical to keep in mind that time is of the essence when pursing a medical malpractice claim.  Indiana law imposes strict deadlines (also called “statutes of limitations”) in medical malpractice cases that will forever bar the claim if it is not filed in a timely manner.  The law relating to the deadline can be exceedingly complex; therefore, one should not delay in consulting a qualified medical malpractice attorney to determine the applicable statute of limitations and review the case.
