Questions to Consider When Filing a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit
If you think you could benefit from hiring a medical malpractice lawyer, then you need to schedule a free consultation as soon as possible. During this initial meeting, your medical malpractice attorney will consider the following questions:
- What did the doctor do wrong?
- How were you injured?
- Was the injury caused by the doctor’s mistake?
Once these questions are answered, your attorney can build your case and seek the compensation you deserve.

What to Look for in a Medical Malpractice Attorney
At Simmons and Fletcher, we know the kind of medical malpractice lawyer you need. Your case requires someone who is:
- Experienced in medical malpractice lawsuits — Don’t just hire the first lawyer you find. Get in touch with a lawyer with specific experience in this field of law.
- Thorough in case preparation — Often times, the details are what can make or break your case. For that reason, it is crucial that your lawyer have a reputation for thorough case preparation.
- Aggressive in representation — While we realize most medical malpractice cases will reach settlement before ever even reaching a courtroom, you need a lawyer who prepares for every case as if he is taking it all the way to the judge and jury. That way, your opponent will know you mean business and be more likely to offer a fair settlement.
