Why Fowler Pickert Eisenmenger Norfleet’s Medical Malpractice Experience Matters to You

In constructing your case, a medical malpractice lawyer enlists key scientific experts as witnesses to substantiate claims of negligence by health care providers. For example, our firm has access to top-tier medical experts who meticulously review your records and treatment. Establishing solid relationships with these experts is critical, as their swift, thorough, and reliable testimony strengthens your case. Cases lacking expert medical opinions often face swift dismissal.

Experience is paramount in navigating the landscape of medical malpractice law. Our experienced attorneys offer not only legal insight but also a nuanced understanding of medical procedures and standards of care. We know how to meet important claim deadlines, interpret complex medical records, identify deviations from accepted practices, and effectively communicate these findings to judges and juries. Seasoned lawyers have honed negotiation skills, too, often securing favorable settlements without the need for lengthy court battles. 

When choosing a medical malpractice lawyer, prioritize experience—it can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.

How to Vet a Missouri Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Choosing the right representation is crucial for ensuring your case receives the attention it deserves. This process may require meeting with multiple lawyers. Initial consultations are typically free and many firms, including Fowler Pickert Eisenmenger Norfleet, work on a contingency fee basis. This means that aside from you covering general administrative costs, we only get paid if we win your case

When searching for a lawyer, read up on their background, verify their status with the state bar association, and consider online reviews. Then, during the consultation, be ready to ask questions including:

  • How do you typically approach medical malpractice cases?
  • What steps will you take to investigate and build my case?
  • Can you explain the legal process involved in pursuing a medical malpractice claim?
  • Will you be personally handling my case, or will it be assigned to another attorney in your firm?
  • Do you have access to medical experts who can review my case and provide testimony if needed?
  • How is your firm equipped to handle complex medical and legal issues that may arise during the case?
  • What are your fees for handling my case, and how are they structured?
  • Do you work on a contingency fee basis, meaning I only pay if we win?
  • Are there any additional costs or expenses I should be aware of during the legal process?

Asking these kinds of questions will help you gain a better understanding of a lawyer's qualifications, approach, and ability to handle your medical malpractice case effectively. At Fowler Pickert Eisenmenger Norfleet, our comprehensive malpractice experience and extensive knowledge of science and medicine help us not only understand the challenges you’re facing right now but also prepare to vigorously defend your rights to fair compensation and lasting recovery.
