A resource we hope we never need ....

But as we all know, when things go wrong, we need lawyers to help us through the legal maze that is litigation. But who do you turn to if something goes badly "pear-shaped" in medicine? Who can you trust? I've asked Medical Malpractice Lawyers, a not-for-profit organization, to tell us how to go about looking for the right lawyer to advise you should the occasion ever occur.


"Working in the medical field is high intensity stuff; nurses, doctors, and paramedicals work long hours and considering that a single mistake can mean someone’s life, stress levels are high.  Although doctors have the best interests of their patients at heart, things can and do go wrong; they’re human and capable of mistakes, just like us.  Unfortunately, because mistakes in the medical field can mean long-lasting, life-changing injuries or, worse, death, injured patients need to know what their options are after suffering an injury. 

Due to this need, Medical Malpractice Lawyers, a not-for-profit organization, was founded by lawyers and lay professionals to fulfill 3 purposes. 

      First, provide laypersons with educational resources to help them determine legitimate legal professionals from illegitimate ones; we do this in an effort to stop laypersons from being taken advantage of by people like adjusters, inexperienced experts, or lawyers, who purport to have experience handling medical malpractice litigation but who, instead, financially benefit primarily from advertising or referring lawyers. 

     Second, provide educational resources to laypersons to help them throughout the process of their medical malpractice case, i.e. everything from choosing a lawyer to helping them calculate how much money they should take home from their case’s settlement or court judgment.

    Third, provide the general public with lawyers that not only specialize in medical malpractice, but who are successful in their field.  Lawyer ranking websites operate under flawed and subjective algorithms that are tainted by politics and the pursuit of financial gain.  Also, ranking sites do not legitimately check that the listed specialties of their rated lawyers are correct.  What this means is that the possibility of citizens seeking a medical malpractice lawyer ending up with a lawyer in an unrelated specialty is strong.  For instance, who would want motorcycle accident lawyers handling their medical malpractice case? 

To give citizens what is actually useful to them, Medical Malpractice lawyers has developed its “Top 1% Trail Counsel for Medical Malpractice Rating System.”  This rating system bypasses the flawed nature of lawyer rating sites by providing citizens with the annually computed top 1 percent of medical malpractice lawyers in the United States.  These are lawyers not only taking medical malpractice cases, but winning them; when you look at our rating system you will find the best medical malpractice lawyers in the country."

Clients, attorneys, and bar associations across the country have long recognized the importance of actual recent courtroom performance as the most reliable indicator of capability and excellence in counsel. For that reason, Medical malpractice Lawyers developed the only third-party administered multi-stage attorney and expert rating system based on actual courtroom performance
