Medical malpractice is defined as when a physician fails to properly treat a medical condition and the negligent act causes a new or aggravated injury to the patient. Medical malpractice may occur in a variety of ways:
1) A delay or failure in diagnosing a disease.
2) A surgical or anesthesia mishap during operation.
3) A physician's failure to gain patient consent.
4) A physician failing to properly treat the disease.
5) Misuse of prescription drugs or medical device.
It is the attorney's obligation to determine as quickly and efficiently as possible whether there is a good, actionable case. This is so because medical malpractice cases are by their very nature, complex, expensive to pursue, have a high risk of no recovery, and often involve a client's "personal" attachment. The first step in the process involves the potential client entering into an agreement with the attorney in which agreement sets forth the method of attorney compensation. Typically the attorney agrees to advance all costs, only to be repaid costs in the event of recovery, and to work on a contingent fee basis, that is the attorney would receive a percentage of the gross recovery. Thus, the client will endure no economic loss in the event of no recovery.
