Choosing the right lawyer for your case is one of the most important decisions that you will make if you or someone in your family is seriously injured or killed. We have established this site to give you information about ourselves, our experience, and general information about the type of cases that we have handled.
The Florida Bar Rules of Professional Conduct require that in personal injury cases a written fee agreement be signed and that prior to signing that agreement the client read a Statement of Client’s Rights. In handling medical malpractice and other complex personal injury and wrongful death cases, the lawyer’s experience and ability is important and can make a difference in the outcome of your case. You should not hesitate to ask any prospective attorney about these matters.
It is also important to ask your lawyer whether he intends to refer your case to another firm. The yellow pages and air waves are full of attorneys who advertise for medical malpractice cases. Very few of these attorneys actually handle the cases themselves, but rather, refer them to an experienced lawyer and receive a portion of the total fee for the work they do. You should ask the lawyer you are about to hire whether he will be the lawyer primarily responsible for your case including the taking of major depositions and handling major court proceedings, including the trial. In medical malpractice cases you should also ask about his experience in handling medical issues and his ability to read and understand what is in your medical records and work with medical experts.
