An experienced testosterone therapy attorney can help people who have been injured by these products recover for all of their injury-related losses. However, many of the men who have suffered a heart attack, stroke, or blood clot from testosterone therapy delay contacting an attorney because they are unsure how to choose the right one. In truth, choosing the right lawyer for this type of case is highly important, as these cases can be very technical and often require a large degree of attention. The following are some tips for choosing the right testosterone attorney for you.
Your first step should be to talk to anyone you know who has undergone a similar experience as you have and has had success with a particular attorney. Perhaps you have a family member or friend that can recommend a testosterone lawyer or products lawyer?
Consider the Focus or Experience of the Law Firm
Just as you likely would not hire a tax attorney to handle a criminal case, you should consider hiring a firm that has prior experience in products liability matters—or better yet, prescription drug cases. Although not a guarantee of results, prior experience in the specific issues raised by your potential case are one indicator of the likelihood that a law firm may be a good fit.
Consider the Size of the Firm
No two firms are alike, however, the size of a law firm can be an important factor in your decision. For example, a large law firm may have too many cases and yours may not receive the maximum attention it deserves. You may even have trouble getting an actual lawyer on the phone to answer your questions. On the other hand, a particularly small firm may not have the resources necessary to adequately handle your case. Therefore, a medium-sized firm may be the best choice for handling a prescription drug or medical device case.
Location, Location, Location
A large number of pharmaceutical cases take place on the federal level and these cases can be moved from court to court—even across the country—in some instances. You should always consider the ability of your attorney to travel to these different areas of the country if necessary. Therefore, consider whether a law firm has multiple locations around the country or just a single office. Does the firm accept cases from every state, or just the state where you are located?
