If you have already gathered a list of potential Virginia medical malpractice lawyers to represent you, the next step would be to call and ask for written information. You need to take the same steps in researching a lawyer as you would for any consumer service.
When you call the law firms you are considering, request that they send you anything that they would like you to read that would convince you to hire them. The attorneys may have books, reports, published articles and other information to send you, which will help you narrow down your search.
Once you have about 3 to 5 lawyers who appear to be experienced enough to handle your case, make an appointment so you can interview them. Remember, most medical malpractice attorneys offer free consultations, so the initial meeting shouldn’t cost you anything.
