Here’s Why

Have you been the victim of medical malpractice?  Have you called a number of law firms, telling your story and looking for help?  Each time to hear that they don’t believe you have a case or that your case is not one they’re willing to take on.  We understand!

Even with the prevalence of medical malpractice, 98% of claims aren’t pursued by law firms.  You may ask yourself why that is?  The truth is that law firms are businesses, and they will only pursue those cases that present so obviously to be “winners”.  Even a small firm might receive 10-15 medical malpractice phone calls per week looking for representation, whereas a large multi-state firm may receive hundreds of calls every day.  It is not feasible for attorneys to invest their resources into each client’s claim.  They simply pick the obvious 1-2% to sign up due to the cost & time associated with the litigation process.

The Business of Medical Malpractice Law

When a firm elects to take a medical malpractice case, they often assume the cost of litigating that case on behalf of their client. By not charging their client unless they are able to obtain a settlement, the firm begins to bear the cost of medical records, expert opinions, depositions, filing fees, copying fees, court costs, etc. related to fighting on behalf of their client. This process can take months to years, with no absolute certainty of a recovery. Attorneys need to be sure of the merits of a case, or they simply can’t stay in business by engaging everyone who asks for help. This is one of the reasons why only 2% of medical malpractice cases are accepted & pursued on behalf of clients.

Second Look Settlements is changing this old way of thinking, by turning the business model upside down. Medical malpractice is the 3rd leading cause of death in the US, yet 98% of claims aren’t pursed. If you believe you’re the victim of medical malpractice, and are frustrated that you can’t seem to find a team of professionals to look at what happened, you’ve come to the right place.
