Harry R. Levin • Medical Malpractice Lawyer
In addition to possessing the necessary experience, a successful medical malpractice attorney must be a compassionate and caring human being. No one wants to relive the circumstances which are the basis for the claim. You have the right to expect that your attorney will treat you with and your feelings with respect. You can rely on me to do so.
As a seasoned malpractice attorney, I will never lose sight of the fact that your case is more than just a case. It is the result of a life-changing experience that you would have done anything to avoid. I will treat you accordingly by applying my experience, my competency and my compassion to your case. I will consult with you at all phases of the process, will be available to answer your questions, and will help you evaluate the case, as well as any and all opportunities for resolution, as the case proceeds. Needless to say, I will never settle your case unless you and I have evaluated every factor, and until you have made the decision to enter into the settlement agreement.
As your advocate, I will explain every aspect of my legal services to you, including my fees. I will meet with you to discuss your case without any charge to you. If you decide to retain me as your attorney, I will handle your medical malpractice case on a contingency fee basis. Simply put, you do not pay me for my services unless we are successful in obtaining compensation for your injuries. If you are successful, you will pay a portion of your compensation to me. The percentage of recovery will be clearly stated in our fee agreement. Generally, you will pay a lower percentage if the case is settled without going to trial and a higher percentage if the case proceeds to trial before a judge or jury.
Medical malpractice cases, like other personal injury cases, have strict deadlines for filing claims or legal actions. Failure to meet the deadlines can mean that you will not be able to pursue your legal rights. In addition, the records and other evidence necessary to prove your claim could be lost or damaged if there is any delay. I will provide you with the information you need to decide whether you want to pursue a medical malpractice case.
