Ever wonder why it is so hard to get an attorney to take your medical malpractice claim? The doctor just about told you he messed up after your surgical procedure was done. On top of that if someone just went through your medical records it would be easy to see how the doctor screwed up. Then why have so many attorneys told me no to my medical malpractice case?
In a word, the answer is $$$$. Medical malpractice cases are very expensive to pursue. The average cost to pursue a medical malpractice case is usually $30,000. Almost always, the attorney has to front that money. If the medical malpractice case is unsuccessful usually the attorney has to pay the fees themselves.
The other big reason is that the odds are stacked against you at trial. Almost 80% of the medical malpractice cases that go to trial result in a verdict for the doctor. Not very encouraging odds.
