Why An Angry Maryland Medical Malpractice Client Didn’t Like My Response
An angry Maryland medical malpractice client, does this happen?
When a patient is injured at the hands of a doctor their life can be turned upside down.
The same thing holds true when the injury is to a child, especially when the baby’s injury happens during birth.
With that said, what type of response can I give to a client and injured patient which can sometimes make them an angry Maryland medical malpractice client?
COSTS…YOU HAVE TO KEEP IN MIND THE COSTS!
Maryland medical malpractice cases require the testimony of medical experts.
Add to this, you may even need the help of a vocational rehabilitation expert, and or an economist.
These experts are generally paid for by your attorney on your behalf.
After the case is completed, the attorney will be repaid these costs from your settlement or jury verdict.
Remember to speak with your attorney regarding costs and who will be responsible for paying costs.
The best practice is to get this information in writing as part of your contractual fee agreement.
WILL YOU BE UPSIDE DOWN???
The reason why the client, who is the basis of this educational article and supporting video was mad at me was because I informed them that I would not take their case because they would be upside down.
What that means is that the costs of bringing the case would have been more than what could have been recovered.
By the time the expenses and legal fee would have been paid out the client would have walked away with very little money.
Issues like this, which can also be frustrating to an injured person, are things which must be taken into consideration before moving forward with a Maryland medical malpractice case.
