Need a Maryland medical malpractice attorney? For many people this is as far as their analysis of their situation goes. To be fair, it is understandable why this is the case as they because more than likely they have suffered a serious injury while in the care of a doctor. Thus, the injured person is usually focused on the fact that they need a Maryland medical malpractice attorney.
But what if there is more to the story? What if your expectations matter? What if I told you that if you don’t understand the importance of your expectations that you might never find a Maryland medical malpractice attorney to take your case.
BEWARE OF UNREASONABLE EXPECTATIONS!!!
When a client has unreasonable expectations regarding their case this is a good way to prevent a Maryland medical malpractice attorney from representing you. Not only is it a problem when a client has unreasonable expectations, but your Maryland attorney is not allowed to create through their actions, or in action, unreasonable expectations about their client’s case.
Unreasonable expectations on the part of a client can cause all types of problems with the prosecution of a medical malpractice case. For example, let’s say that you realize that you need a Maryland medical malpractice attorney. With that said, you are under the impression that your case should be completed within a few months. Your attorney explains to you that there is no way that your case can be completed that fast. However, you continue to feel that the case should be completed in a few months. When the case does not finish in a couple of months can you see how this will be a serious issue?
Another example of unreasonable expectations can focus on the value of your case, and this example is a biggie! Add to it, unreasonable expectations in regards to case value are not exclusive to medical malpractice cases. These issues can be found in car collision cases, premises liability cases, etc…
How this issue can present itself is the client will think that their case is worth, let’s say, $500,000. The attorney on the other hand, after doing a proper evaluation of the case, says that the case is worth $75,000, at most. Even after all the discussion and information provided to the client, the client still thinks that their case is worth $500,000. Again, can you see how this unreasonable expectation regarding the case worth will lead to serious problems with the attorney client relationship?
