The First Step You Should Take for Your Pending Medical Malpractice Case.
If you believe that you have a medical malpractice claim, the first thing you should do is actually contact a lawyer, tell them why you feel that you have a medical malpractice claim and gather the medical records and present that to your lawyer. A lot of times the lawyer may have to gather those medical records as well. Those medical records are then put together and after they are analyzed, the attorney then will send them off to a medical expert to get an actual opinion to see whether or not the doctor committed malpractice.
From there, you place the other side, the doctor, with a warning that you’re going to be filing a malpractice claim to give them the opportunity to potentially settle. If they do, great; most of the time, they don’t and, unfortunately, after that complaint is filed and, ultimately, if the claim is not settled, it goes in front of a jury and the jury renders an award.
