The kind of attorney you should look for is preferably the one specializing in personal injury cases. Attorneys are not insurers or predictors of accuracy. But “competent” representation means that, regardless of experience, counsel will be expected to research the law to make informed intelligent judgments regarding the issues presented. [Aloy v. Mash (1985) 38 C3d 413, 212 CR 162].
Furthermore, in medical malpractice cases, the appropriate standard of care required of a medical professional is not a matter of common lay knowledge. Therefore, except in cases of “egregious” medical negligence (¶ 2:386 ff.), expert medical testimony is required in medical malpractice actions to establish the standard of care required of a physician (or otherhealth care provider) under the circumstances. [See Flowers v. Torrance Mem. Hosp. Med. Ctr.(1994) 8 C4th 992, 1001, 35 CR2d 685, 690). It would be best to seek personal assistance from a lawyer in order to guide you in filing a personal injury claim.
