Several Reasons Why Attorneys May Not Take A Medical Malpractice Case VA Lawyer Richard Aufe

Listen as Richard Aufenger explains why an attorney may choose not to take your personal injury case. Medical malpractice cases are different than most injury cases, as we must show that the doctor breached the standard of care. In Virginia, we must have an expert in the field certify that there was negligence before we can proceed with a lawsuit. This can be very expensive. In these cases, we have to hire the best experts, as does the other side. This battle of experts can be very costly, starting at an investment of twenty-five thousand dollars, and it could cost as much as a two hundred fifty thousand dollars. With these costs in mind, a lawyer may listen to many cases before they find one that they can take to trial. Also, understand that every injury case involving medical is not malpractice.
