What to do if you think you or someone you love is a victim of medical malpractice? It is important to have a presence of mind during stressful situations. Remember these useful tips when dealing with medical malpractice.
1. Document everything – document all important details like the dates, medications and dosage, procedures, names of the doctors and nurses, conversations with the medical provider, and anything that can help the attorney. As much as possible, try to document as things are going on.
2. Request your medical records. Your medical records will be very important to your case. When requesting your records, do not tell them you are asking for it because you will be asking a lawyer’s help to file a lawsuit.
3. Do not be afraid to ask questions. Ask questions like what medicine they are injecting into your body and its purpose, the cause of your illness and what they will do to treat it. Ask as many questions as you can. Remember, it’s your body they are treating. You have the right to ask.
4. Contact an attorney who specializes in medical malpractice cases. Schedule a consultation and ask questions. The attorney can tell you if you have a case or not. Once you and the attorney have signed an agreement, tell them everything you know, every single detail. Provide them your complete documentation and your medical records. At this point, your attorney should be your main contact in the case. Avoid talking to your medical providers to the concerned. Your attorney will do this for you.
