When choosing a law firm to represent you in a medical malpractice case, it's important to do your homework. Not every law firm that advertises on the Internet has the experience and resources necessary to take on a complicated medical malpractice case.
At Hampton & King, medical malpractice is the primary focus of our practice. It is what we do.
The Experience That Matters
Many "personal injury" lawyers list medical malpractice as one of their practice areas, along with car wrecks, slip-and-fall accidents, mass torts, etc. etc. etc. But few attorneys work every day in the specialized world of medical malpractice litigation. Few understand the complexities of bringing a medical malpractice case to trial. Therefore, you should ask your lawyer if he or she has successfully handled a medical malpractice case similar to yours.
Hartley Hampton was selected as a medical malpractice Super Lawyer when Thomson Reuters created the list in 2003, and every year thereafter through 2014.
The Resources To See Your Case Through
Some personal injury attorneys write demand letters and hope for a quick settlement. This does not work for medical malpractice cases, which are always well-defended by medical professionals and their insurance companies.
Medical malpractice cases in Texas require the use of expert witnesses who can testify as to whether the provider failed to meet the standard of care. Developing a case of medical malpractice can easily cost $100,000. As a result, few law firms are willing and able to invest the resources necessary to be successful.
If we believe in your case, we will advance the cost of developing the evidence and trial. If we are not successful, you will owe us nothing.
