Long Beach Medical Malpractice Information

Do You Have a Medical Malpractice Case?

Hospitas, doctors, and other medical staff are supposed to help patients, not injure them. Unfortuantely, when something a healthcare professional does or does not do causes a patient to be injured, he or she likely has committed medical malpractice and you may have a case.

Common Medical Malpractice Cases

Medical malpractice cases come in many forms. Some common types of medical malpractice cases include failure to diagnose medical conditions or misdiagnosis, surgical errors, anesthesia negligence, birth injuries and hospital negligence.

If you or a loved one was injured due to the fault of a medical professional, now is the time to act. Not only could you be entitled to compensation, but you could also hold the care providers responsible for their negligence. Speaking with an experienced Long Beach medical malpractice attorney can help you determine if you have a case by reviewing your medical records and, if needed, he or she will hire a medical expert to get the additional evidence needed to evaluate your claim.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

The Importance of a Good Consultation

The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.

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.
