Settling Your Medical Malpractice Case Don’t Forget This

Are you settling your medical malpractice case and have concerns about some of the issues which may present themselves? Some cases can fall into the category of settlement, while others must be decided by a jury trial. There are many factors which can lead to settling your medical malpractice case.

Before exploring the question in today’s medical malpractice article, I want you to remember a key point. The information that I am providing is general in nature. If you have specific questions regarding settling a medical malpractice case, be sure to speak with your attorney about those questions. Your attorney will be able to provide more information as to the issues present in your case.


A huge mistake that can be made when a case is in settlement posture is for the client to think that they know more than the attorney assisting them to close the case out. I know this sounds like a given, but it is probably not going to be in the client’s best interests to actively work against their attorney.

When a person looks to hire a birth injury, or medical malpractice attorney, they are looking to use that attorney’s expertise in the given practice area. This means that the attorney will consult the client on the pros and cons of their case. It is not the role of the attorney to just, “tell the client the good news” about the case.

Finally, you must remember that the attorney that you have hired more than likely has dealt with the issues in your case. This means that the attorney will be able to draw from this experience to help you navigate settling your medical malpractice claim, which can be invaluable!


If your medical malpractice case falls into the category of those which can be resolved through settlement, you can have the final say as to the value of your claim. The process can be tedious and uncertain at times. However, using your attorney as a helper in the process can go a long way in giving you piece of mind regarding the process.
