Are You a Doctor Who Has Been Accused of Malpractice?

If you have been accused of malpractice, a Los Altos doctor malpractice defense attorney can help you analyze the type of injury or trauma you are being accused of causing and/or contributing to. A skilled medical malpractice defense attorney can give you pertinent facts that will help guide your defense.

Doctor Malpractice Accusations

Doctors are accused of malpractice when they have been negligent during the treatment of an individual which falls below the accepted standard of care in the practice of the medical community, and such negligent behavior causes injury or death to the patient. Injured patients may be liable for an individual’s injury or trauma and the alleged victim may be entitled to collect damages against a doctor. Because standards vary by jurisdiction, it is important to seek an attorney’s advice.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation

Prepare for your consultation by writing down notes of your understanding of the case, jot down questions and concerns for the attorney, and gather your documents. Remember that you are trying to get a sense of whether the attorney has your trust and can help you address your legal issues. Questions should include how the attorney intends to resolve your issue, how many years he/she has been practicing law and specifically practicing in your area, as well as how many cases similar to yours the attorney has handled. It can also be helpful to broach the subject of fees so that you understand the likely cost and structure of your representation by a specific attorney and/or legal team.

Points to Consider Before Hiring a Lawyer

Experience. Regardless of the type of legal matter you need help with, an experienced attorney will usually be able to get you better results.

Competence. Determine an attorney’s expertise by asking about their track record for the issue you need help with resolving.

Fit. There are plenty of good attorneys out there; make sure you find one you are comfortable working with.

Common legal terms explained

Pro se – This Latin term refers to representing yourself in court instead of hiring professional legal counsel. Pro se representation can occur in either criminal or civil cases.

Statute – Refers to a law created by a legislative body. For example, the laws enacted by Congress are statutes.

Subject matter jurisdiction – Requirement that a particular court have authority to hear the claim based on the specific type of issue brought to the court. For example, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court only has subject matter jurisdiction over bankruptcy filings, therefore it does not have the authority to render binding judgment over other types of cases, such as divorce.
