Can Your Attorney call a Press Conference in Your Medical Malpractice Case

You feel you have been injured due to the negligence of your doctor or because your doctor violated the basis standards of good and accepted medical care. Now you have filed a medical malpractice lawsuit, and during the trial, your attorney wants to give a press conference regarding your case. Can he do that, and why? The answer is that your attorney has every right to call a press conference.

Why would an Attorney Want to Call a Press Conference?

There can be two reasons why your attorney would want to call a press conference in a medical malpractice case filed in New York. One of the reasons could be that he wants to draw attention to what occurred to you and shed some light onto this story. He might want the entire city to know through press coverage about what happened to you, and how the doctors or the hospital violated the basic standards of medical care.

Your lawyer wants to generate massive amounts of public opinion, one way, or other, about the events that occurred. Once he has done that and if there is a wave of public opinion against the doctor or hospital whom you have sued, then a number of things can happen. One of the likely things is that you can use that public opinion pressure, to try to put pressure on the insurance company and the defense into settling your case. This is one of the key strategies used for holding a press conference.

Publicizing the Result He was Able to Achieve

The other reason why an attorney would want to call a press conference is when he wants to generate publicity for the results he has achieved for you. Typically, you will see that when an attorney has managed to reach a certain plateau for your case such as obtaining a multi-million dollar verdict or a massive settlement for his client, he wants the public to know his side won and that justice was conveyed. It is a win win, or a win win win depending on you want to look at it.

This attorney is using this for some marketing purposes and possibly trying to attract new clients and/or victims.

This will give other people who are victims of medical malpractice, the opportunity to hear and know about the attorney who was able to secure such a mighty victory. As just stated, this is a marketing ploy as well.

Predicting a Jury's Decision

So there are two key strategies about why an attorney would call a press conference for a medical malpractice case in New York. In the first strategy, where the attorney is trying to garner public support, he will carefully study the case and see if people are outraged about what has happened to the victim. There are chances of this strategy misfiring though, if the majority of people believe this victim did not do enough to protect themselves, made the wrong decision, or was partially at fault, then this attorney will know their case is not as powerful as they once thought.

Now they know how a jury may feel.

The second strategy for holding a public conference always works, because there will be victims of medical malpractice looking for a sound and fantastic attorney. When an attorney has managed to win a case by a huge margin that can attract other victims to come out of the shadows.
