How do I choose a medical malpractice lawyer?
Experience matters. Our San Antonio medical malpractice lawyers know how to take on health care providers and outsmart their legal team because we know their tactics, and they don’t intimidate us. The attorneys at the Herrera Law Firm have decades of experience handling complex medical malpractice cases. Our legal team knows how to negotiate with insurance companies and get you the compensation you rightfully deserve.
You may not think you need a lawyer if you’re dealing with a medical malpractice case. If a surgeon or nurse made a mistake, all you have to do is tell them or your insurance company what happened and you will be fairly compensated, right?
Don’t be so sure. In most cases, health care professionals deny doing anything wrong. They – and their insurance companies – also routinely hire a team of attorneys to protect their rights. They do this because they want to avoid paying injury victims compensation that’s fair.
