Why is it hard to find a lawyer for a medical malpractice case, even when the doctor or hospital were clearly at-fault?
Medical malpractice cases are extremely difficult and challenging and expensive. They’re difficult and challenging because the defendant insurance companies fight these cases very aggressively. Further, they’re complicated because medical testimony is required in order to prove your case. On top of that, jury verdicts, in spite of all the evidence, find in favor of defendant healthcare providers 90 to 94% of the time. Therefore, it’s really important to be selective in the cases that we pursue.
