Have You Suffered due to Medical Malpractice? Here’s How to Tell
Medical malpractice is not always easy to define. That’s why we have medical malpractice attorneys who specialize in this kind of litigation. But, you should know how to identify medical malpractice in order to know whether or not to seek legal action. So, here are some things to keep in mind about doctors.
First of all, in order to have a case, you must establish that you have a doctor-patient relationship. Simply consulting with a doctor does not constitute this relationship. If the doctor has examined or provided treatment for you, that’s a good indication that you have this important aspect of the case.
Secondly, the doctor must have acted negligently in some way. That does not necessarily mean that the doctor needs to have made a mistake during a procedure. He or she could have failed to recommend the correct procedure based on your symptoms which shows medical negligence (and possibly incompetence).
Lastly, you must have endured harm by the negligence in the case. Of course, this is the part that really hits home for you. So, if you have suffered harm, whether physically, emotionally or financially due to the negligence of a doctor, please contact us. We want to provide the compensation that you deserve.
