4 Benefits of Hiring a Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Most people don’t deal with lawyers unless they’re doing something “big” – like buying a house or signing an important contract.

If you’ve been the victim of medical malpractice, you may not have considered hiring a lawyer. However, if you want to file a malpractice lawsuit, there are several good reasons to hire a lawyer.

These are some of the benefits of hiring a medical malpractice lawyer:

  • They’ll communicate with insurance companies on your behalf.

  • They can accelerate the claims process.

  • They’ll work to get you as significant a settlement as possible.

  • They have access to resources you don’t.

At Sommers Roth and Elmaleh, our malpractice lawyers have extensive experience with medical malpractice lawsuits.

1. Medical malpractice lawyers will communicate with insurance companies on your behalf

When you file a malpractice lawsuit, communicating with insurance companies can be exhausting. The insurance company may constantly be asking for more and more paperwork, to the point you consider just giving up on your lawsuit because you’re so exhausted.

This is one of the areas where a medical malpractice lawyer can make all the difference. A medical malpractice lawyer will take on the burden of communicating with insurance companies.

Because they are far more experienced at working with insurance companies, they can streamline the paperwork process and let you focus on healing.

2. Lawyers can accelerate the claims process

Another benefit of hiring a medical malpractice lawyer is that they can help accelerate the claims process.

Pursuing a lawsuit is not easy, especially if you have no experience with the law or lawsuits.

That’s why hiring a malpractice lawyer is beneficial if you’re filing a malpractice claim. A medical malpractice lawyer knows about all the different aspects of pursuing a lawsuit – such as hiring expert witnesses – which can help make it faster to settle your claim.

3. They will work to get you as big a settlement as possible

Most medical malpractice lawyers work on a “no win, no fee” basis—meaning if they don’t win your case, you don’t owe them anything. There are two reasons this benefits you:

  • Since lawyers don’t want to argue a case they have no chance of winning, they won’t waste your time or money if you don’t have a strong case.

  • They are motivated to get you a large settlement as they accept a portion of your settlement as their fees.

You deserve compensation if you’ve been the victim of medical malpractice – and a malpractice lawyer can help ensure you get it.

4. Lawyers have access to resources you don’t

Another benefit of hiring a malpractice lawyer is that they have access to resources you don’t. Malpractice lawyers have an extensive network and can reach out to:

  • Expert witnesses who can testify on your behalf.

  • Contacts with large insurance companies they can work with to speed up the process of examining your claim.

  • Other legal professionals who can provide them with support and guidance as necessary.
