Do I Need a Malpractice Lawyer?
What to do if you or a loved one has been injured due to a doctor’s or hospital’s mistake: a blog on different ways and steps on dealing with negligence by doctors.
Medical malpractice cases can be complex – proving medical negligence is not always easy, and medical errors, misdiagnoses, meeting standards of care, and other factors all play into the viability of a medical malpractice claim against a healthcare provider or medical professional and their insurance companies. If you are wondering, “Do I Need a Malpractice Lawyer?” this post should be helpful in answering that question!
I, or a loved one, was injured during a medical procedure or receiving medical treatment – what do I do?
This question is one we hear often. You trust your doctors and healthcare providers to afford you or your loved ones the best treatment possible, so it can be hard to know what to do when a medical mistake occurs. If you believe you were the victim of medical malpractice, you should speak with a qualified medical malpractice attorney or law firm with experience handling medical malpractice claims. There are a wide range of medical malpractice cases, from surgical errors, overworked physicians and staff in emergency rooms, pharmacists dispensing the wrong medication or wrong doses, medical devices used improperly, birth injuries, anesthesia errors, misdiagnosis of health issues, and more.
If you believe something didn’t go quite right following a medical procedure or treatment, consider legal representation. If a loved one suffered a debilitating injury or even wrongful death, or you are concerned the care provided failed to meet the standards you expected, you should speak with an attorney to evaluate your case.
Protecting Your Rights – Get Legal Advice!
Insurance companies usually look out for their best interests above yours – the same is true for insurance carriers that provide medical practice insurance. If you think you were injured and you raise a concern with the medical professionals who treated you, be wary if their insurance company reaches out and offers your compensation without first speaking with an attorney. In many cases, medical malpractice insurance carriers try to settle claims for pennies on the dollar to keep patients from filing a medical malpractice lawsuit to protect their bottom lines. Having experienced legal representation can ensure that your rights are protected!
