Most people dislike lawyers – until they need one. And there are lots of situations where you might find yourself in need of an attorney. Maybe somebody hit your car in traffic and refuses to admit they’re in the wrong. Perhaps you’ve recently suffered a personal injury from an assault or from medical malpractice. Or was the medical malpractice done to your child or family member, resulting in a brain injury or disability? In any of these situations, it helps to know a good legal expert.
Doctors don’t always know best
When you go to the doctor, the last thing you expect is to end up in a courtroom instead. The medical field is one of the most respected professions in the world, and patients rarely question what their doctor tells them. But doctors are human too, so sometimes they make mistakes. And when they do, they rarely admit it, so you’re likely to need some moral and legal support. Of course, as a patient, you have no sure way of knowing when you’ve been treated inappropriately. You might feel uneasy and unwell, but your doctor can claim that those are medical side effects. You’ll need a trained legal eye backed by second or third opinions from neutral medical experts. Medical situations where you may need a lawyer include misdiagnosis, surgical errors, an incorrect prescription or any other act of negligence.
