What if no one will take my case?
Do not hesitate to talk to more than one lawyer about taking your case. Maybe the third lawyer you talk to will have had good success with a case just like yours, while the first two had bad experiences with a similar case. What if no attorney will take your case? It means the consensus is either that your case probably cannot be won, or that the likely damages that can be recovered will not justify bringing the case.
It is our firm belief that you should not try to pursue the case without legal representation. There may be much more at stake for you financially than you realize. If you are convinced that you received inappropriate care but cannot find a lawyer, you are encouraged to file a complaint with the appropriate medical regulatory board or agency. Any of the malpractice lawyers who turned your case down should be able to tell you what agency to contact for your area. While filing a grievance with an administrative agency will not ordinarily result in compensation for you, it may in fact help prevent the incident from happening to other patients in the future.
In Georgia you can get information on filing an administrative complaint against a doctor at the Agency for Agency for Health Care Administration web site.
