Trial Attorneys, Medical Doctors, and Expert Witnesses
“Law and Medicine”
If you want a truly “aggressive” attorney,
hire the most qualified in the field!
As the client, the choice of an attorney is yours alone. But be careful! Ask yourself if your attorney really has what it takes to “aggressively” pursue your case in the modern era, instead of just bragging about results from the glory days before Tort Reform.
Many lawyers say they are “aggressive” which usually means they are promising a quick result. Regardless of such promises, the truth is that modern-era medical malpractice cases are not typically conducive to rapid resolution by aggressive “lawyering” alone. So, promises of “rocket dockets” and “aggressive” pursuit of cases usually means a conveyor-belt “one size fits all” method of legally working the case that was developed long ago when litigating cases was far different than today. And that usually means cutting corners, missing key pieces of the medical care in question, or otherwise sacrificing thoroughness for fast (but not the most) money to you, the client.
This is particularly true in the post-2004 era of Texas Medical Malpractice “Tort Reform” wherein procedural hurdles and defense delay tactics abound. Prosecuting a modern-era medical malpractice case correctly and optimally requires an extensive knowledge of both the law and the medicine, not only to properly and completely present the entire case for you, the client, but also to defeat the multiple stall tactics and excuses that doctors, nurses, and hospitals make up to delay your case or explain away your botched medical care.
That’s not saying that your case cannot be resolved quickly. It is simply saying that most attorneys cannot do so properly: in today’s “Tort Reform” world, most attorney’s lack the skill set to quickly resolve a case while also obtaining the best monetary outcome for you. Don’t fall for empty promises and tall building/big ego types when it comes to choosing your attorney. True proficiency (and thus time-savings and maximizing recovery of money) in medical malpractice litigation requires the constant input of both up-to-date medical knowledge and contemporary legal insight. Dr. Barnes has both, unlike most other attorneys who are not doctors and have to retain expensive and busy doctor “experts” as consultants or rely upon outdated knowledge and tactics.
Barnes & Associates does not stop merely with Dr. Barnes’ education, training, and experience as a doctor and a lawyer. Barnes & Associates also utilizes an aggregation of numerous other approachable, likeable, and available physicians and attorneys throughout the United States. This adds additional layers of checks and cross-checks to ensure state-of-the-art medical-legal approaches to your individual case.
Dr. Barnes and Barnes & Associates have the “law and medicine” that are required to get your case evaluated, pursued, and completed quickly and with maximum recovery to you. This speed without sacrificing recovery is what it means to truly “aggressively” prosecute your lawsuit.
