Chicago Medical Malpractice Trial Lawyers
The number of cases that actually go to trial are small. Trying medical malpractice cases is expensive, it’s difficult, and they are easy to lose if you don’t know what you’re doing.
Very few lawyers are actual true trial lawyers. The majority of lawyers attempt to settle the case to avoid the work, anxiety, and pressures of actually trying a case in front of a jury. The majority of lawyers in town who do personal injury as a general category don’t like to try medical malpractice cases.
At our firm, this is all we do and trying cases is a big part of what we do. It’s how we maximize value to the client. Trial work is a very, very specific skill that must be honed and learned over time. The only way you can become a good trial lawyer is to actually try cases.
The willingness to take a case to trial is the ultimate price that a hospital, a doctor, or another medical care provider would have to pay. If they know up front that you are a law firm either unwilling or unable to take a case to trial, you will never be able to get full value for your case. You have to be able to be willing to get into the arena with them in order for them to be willing to pay you what the case is worth.
