Can a New York Lawyer Guarantee Results in a Medical Malpractice or Accident Case?

Posted by attorney Gerald Oginski

How cool would it be if you walked into a lawyers office and they were able to guarantee you the type of result you wanted for your medical malpractice, wrongful death or accident case in New York? It would be awesome. However, the reality is entirely different.

The reality is that no matter how good the attorney is, no matter what type of cases they've handled in the past, and no matter what results they have achieved in the past, no lawyer can ever guarantee you a particular result or outcome.

Why is this important?

It's important because many attorneys advertise their successes. They are proud of what they have accomplished, and they should be. However, some people reading about a lawyers successes may believe that the lawyer can achieve great results in every single case every time.

Although an attorney is required to have a disclaimer saying that past results do not guarantee a particular outcome for your case, you may become enamored with big verdicts and settlements, somehow believing that the lawyer will be able to do the same for you.

Obviously, the attorney will do everything possible to achieve a maximum result for you since the more compensation they obtain for you, the more they will receive for their law firm.
