Mistakes to Avoid in a Medical Malpractice Case
In this video, our Atlanta injury attorney discusses what mistakes to avoid in a medical malpractice claim to make sure your rights are protected.
What mistakes should I avoid when filing a medical malpractice claim?
When we have people come to see us over a potential medical malpractice claim, we often see that they have harmed their case by doing several things that are hard to recover from. We don’t want this to happen to you, so here are some things to avoid. First thing to do is to document your injury when you realize there is an issue following some sort of medical treatment or procedure.
It’s important to go back and make sure you have records documenting what has occurred. You may or may not feel comfortable going back to the same doctor who has caused the harm, so use your judgment of whether you think you should go back to that doctor or go to an independent doctor. It’s very important to make sure you are getting treatment and you’re documenting that something went wrong as a result of your medical treatment.
Also, we find that people have waited too long in medical malpractices cases to seek legal representation and get the right attorney. Medical malpractice cases are cases where evidence can tend to disappear quickly, especially when medical devices are involved. It’s important that you get the right attorney involved so that evidence can be preserved, and you will have the ability to present that case later as you develop the evidence. Make sure you hire an attorney who knows how to handle medical malpractice cases and can take those cases all the way through trial with expert witnesses, if necessary.
