If your case is a common and straightforward one, like nerve injury, wrong anesthesia dosage, delayed diagnosis, wrong tooth extraction, etc., then there’s a good chance the lawyer has already dealt with that case. In that case, you won’t have to go too far with the lawyer hunting and just make sure that the lawyer is a skilled and experienced one.
However, according to the OC dental malpractice attorney Dane Levy, there are some cases that are rare or more complicated. For example, withholding the risks of a certain procedure, verbal abuse and putting mental pressure on the patient, failure to completely review medical history, and such.
For these cases, it’s important for the lawyer to have some form of experience in a case similar to yours. Because it will be a difficult case to fight, and there will be a lot to establish in the court if you want to have any chance of winning. Having a long career with a decent success history also counts as being experienced, but it will be even better if the lawyer has fought at least one case in the past that was like yours.
If the lawyer does have experience in a similar case, then your next question should be what the outcome of the case was and whether you stand a chance or not. If not, then you can request the lawyer to refer you to someone who might have experience in this field. Most lawyers will gladly do that since they don’t want a loss in their portfolio.
