Are You a Doctor Who Has Been Accused of Malpractice?

If you have been accused of malpractice, a San Jose 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.

When to Hire a Lawyer

It is in your best interest to get legal help early on in addressing your situation. There are times when hiring a lawyer quickly is critical to your case, such as if you are charged with a crime. It may also be in your best interest to have a lawyer review the fine print before signing legal documents.

Top Questions to Ask a Lawyer

  • What is the usual process to resolve my case? How long will it take to resolve this?
  • What are likely outcomes of a case like mine? What should I expect?

An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic “road map” on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you’ve laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.

How much does it cost to hire an attorney?

In general, how much an attorney costs will often depend on these four factors: billing method and pricing structure, type of legal work performed, law firm prestige, and attorney experience. Depending on the legal issue you are facing, an attorney may bill you by the hour, settle on a flat fee, or enter into a contingency fee agreement. The type of legal work you need help with will also play a role in cost incurred.
