Find a Rancho Santa Margarita Doctor Malpractice Attorney in your area

Are You a Doctor Who Has Been Accused of Malpractice?

If you have been accused of malpractice, a Rancho Santa Margarita 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.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It’s important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice’s billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.

How will an attorney charge me?

A reputable attorney will be very upfront about how he/she will charge you. The three most common fee structures that attorneys use to charge for their services are:

  • Bill by the hour
  • Contingent fee agreement
  • Flat fee agreement

Depending on your specific legal situation, it’s possible that only one type of fee structure is available. For instance, criminal defense attorneys almost always bill by the hour. In a flat fee arrangement, an attorney accepts a one-time payment to help you resolve your issue. With a contingent fee agreement, the client pays little to nothing upfront and the attorney receives a percentage of the money recovered if you win your case.
