Your Attorney Must Have Specialized Expertise 

Most people think that they can work with any personal injury attorney, but a lawyer without specialized experience can actually harm your chances for a positive outcome. A Des Moines IA medical malpractice attorney will have knowledge of tort law and that is important, but he will also be familiar with the healthcare industry. In many instances, a case may hinge on the attorney’s ability to comprehend complex medical conditions and treatments.

This is your one and only chance to receive compensation for your damages. This means being able to present a compelling case is vital to your future, which relies on hiring the right attorney. While any attorney may have the passion and drive to win your case for you, it takes more than that to convince a jury and insurance companies that you should be compensated.

Additionally, a Des Moines IA medical malpractice attorney will command greater respect from the judge, insurance company, and the opposing side’s attorneys. Why is this important? When the opposing side openly ridicules your attorney, or disrespects him in other ways, the judge and jury will also lose respect for your lawyer. When that happens, the jury is less likely to have faith in the arguments your lawyer presents. even a flawless case can be viewed with skepticism, when the attorney doesn’t command respect.
