Selecting an experienced and effective medical malpractice law firm can be a confusing and daunting task because so many lawyers appear on the Internet. Since you only have one chance to win in court, the selection of an appropriate firm is very important. Like anything else on the Internet, a bit of research goes a long way in terms of determining who is the very best choice to assist your family in this important decision. One thing that is important to look at is the trial verdicts and results that the firm has achieved in the past. While a track record of success is not an indicator of how your case will resolve, a successful track record does show who is willing to go to court and fight aggressively for your babies future. It also tends to show who has the financial, legal and medical resources to see your case through to successful conclusion. Like any profession, not all lawyers are created equally- frankly some are better than others. Trial lawyers are willing to go to court and fight for you, not all lawyers are willing and able to go to court. Even among trial lawyers some are better than others, some have earned tremendous peer recognition and outstanding results, for example, see attorney profile Gershon
. You can tell by their verdicts and settlements
who is willing and able to go to court and obtain fair and appropriate justice for your child.
Also the background and education of the lawyer(s) is highly relevant. The Firm of Gershon Willoughby and Getz is unique because the majority of our lawyers are actual medical doctors and nurses. We believe we have the finest background and training to advocate for our clients and we believe that has assisted us in obtaining record verdict and settlements throughout the country. We also believe that the “firm” approach that we bring to each case we accept is important. Unlike solo-practitioners for example, we roundtable all cases among all our medical doctors and nurses to determine the most effective approach to present your case in court.
Finally, determine if the law firm you are considering will be handling the case themselves or sending your case to another firm for handling. Many law firms do not handle your case directly rather they refer you to another law firm, such as ours, to handle. At Gershon, Willoughby and Getz our lawyers are trial lawyers and trying medical negligence cases is all we do. Your case will stay with our firm through settlement or the jury’s verdict.
