If you or a loved one is unjustly treated by a healthcare provider’s negligence, you may need to contact a medical malpractice lawyer. Here are some tips on how to choose a medical malpractice lawyer.

Ask for a referral – Ask family, friends or another lawyer to recommend a good medical malpractice lawyer.

Look online – There are many websites that offer lists of reputed lawyers for specific needs. Make sure you look at the city and state they reside. For example, if you live in California, look at California dental malpractice lawyers. Choosing an attorney close to your home will make visits a lot easier.

Contact your county’s local bar association – Call or email your country’s bar association and ask them to refer you to lawyers who can handle your case.

Contact your state bar association – If you are unable to reach your local county bar association, contact your state bar association for help.

Take a look at the attorney websites – When you look at an attorney website, look at how many people work at the firm and if they focus on medical malpractice.

When you finally select a lawyer, interview them and ask them how many cases they have handled that resemble your case. For example, if you are looking at a dental product liability claim, ask your lawyer about similar cases and the specifics of that case


Anyone who has experienced any of the above should consult an attorney about a dental malpractice case.
