Choosing the right fertility malpractice lawyer is a critical decision for anyone who has been a victim of misconduct at a fertility clinic. Fertility malpractice cases can be complex and emotionally charged, and it is important to have an attorney who is both experienced and compassionate. When choosing a fertility malpractice lawyer, there are several important factors to consider:
Where to Start When Looking for the Best Fertility Malpractice Lawyer
Most people have never needed a lawyer before and don’t know where to start. Trying to find the right lawyer can be a daunting task–particularly in an area as specialized as fertility malpractice. Many people begin their search by asking family or friends who may know a lawyer. This is a reasonable place to start, but is not without problems. There are a lot of lawyers out there who will say that they can handle your case, but if they don’t have experience with fertility cases and a track record of success with these cases, they will likely not be able to obtain the best results for you. This is true in any state, but even more so in states that have caps on the damages patients can recover.
Another natural starting point is searching Google for a lawyer. (That’s probably how you found this article!) Finding a lawyer through Google (or other search engine) is pretty common. As with everything on the Internet, however, you need to be careful and make sure the information lawyers are telling you on their websites is correct. Do they claim to have experience with fertility cases? Check to see if they’ve been published on the subject, or if they’ve actually obtained settlements or verdicts. Ask for proof! Also, you should actually speak to the lawyers who will be handling your case. You should be talking to one or more partners at the firm – not just staff or a lower level associate. Make sure you are comfortable with the attorney who will be in charge of your case! Below is a checklist of things to look for.
Choose Someone with Experience
It’s essential to find an attorney who has experience handling fertility malpractice cases. This is particularly important because fertility malpractice cases can be complex and require a deep understanding of the legal and medical issues involved.
Are They Compassionate?
In addition to experience, it’s important to find an attorney who is compassionate and understanding of the emotional toll that fertility malpractice can take on a person. Fertility malpractice cases can be devastating to families, and you need to have an attorney who is sensitive to this and can provide support throughout the legal process.
Find An Attorney Who Will Fight for You
It’s also important to find an attorney who is willing to fight for your rights and interests. Fertility malpractice cases can be difficult to prove and require an attorney who is willing to take on difficult cases and do the work necessary to obtain justice for their client. When looking for a fertility malpractice lawyer, ask for references and check the attorney’s track record. How many cases have they won? How much have they recovered? It is also important to speak to the attorney to see if you feel comfortable with their approach and if you have good communication with them. As stated above, you should be talking to a managing partner. If they won’t take the time to speak to you for an initial consultation, that’s a huge red flag!
