Medical malpractice lawsuits take time. They require medical malpractice lawyers to review and study not only the facts of the case that the client has supplied, but in some cases, medical experts are called upon to give their opinion as to the merit of the case. This can be a long and tedious process.
Medical malpractice lawsuits are usually complicated and present medical malpractice lawyers with a complex series of challenges in order to bring the case to a satisfying conclusion for a client.
Medical malpractice lawyers sometimes schedule office meetings to make sure the defendant understands what is happening with the case and what the client can expect until the case is settled.
Medical malpractice lawyers sympathize with the client concerning the timing of a case. They know that the client is anxious for a quick conclusion as well as a satisfactory monetary settlement of the case.
There is nothing wrong with a client checking on the status of a case, as long as the timing of the calls is reasonable. A client who is constantly calling the law firm for status on the case is only acting as a detriment to the impending settlement. Give the lawyer the time he needs; his attention now will make for a better settlement later.
