When a potential client contacts a medical malpractice law firm there is a great chance that some type of serious injury has happened to the client. Not only is a serious injury a high likelihood, but a death as a result of medical malpractice is also a reality. These types of situations by their nature are very emotional and highly charges.
With that said, you have to understand the lawyer’s role in these types of cases. Now, before we go any further, we are not saying that the attorney needs to have the personality and emotional structure of a zombie! What we are saying is that these types of cases are very complex and rely a lot on medicine and science.
An attorney screening a possible medical malpractice case must take the time to understand what it is the medicine is concluding about the case. Did the doctor not use even the most basic standards of care in your case? Did the doctor fail to repair the common bile duct after cutting or burning it during a gallbladder surgery? Did the doctor go through a differential diagnosis when the patient presented at the hospital for chest pains?
These are the types of things that your attorney is focusing on when he or she is trying to determine whether you have a viable Maryland medical malpractice case and if you really think about it, there is very little “emotion” tied to these issues.
