Why do you need an attorney with experience handling complex medical malpractice cases?

Unlike other types of personal injury cases, the facts necessary to prove your cases are based on the medical records and testimony of medical experts. Your attorney must thoroughly understand the medicine involved and the applicable law to effectively evaluate the merits of your case and then competently and thoroughly pursue your claim if it does have merit.
