|Should I give a recorded statement about my medical malpractice claim?|
I was recently contacted by a woman in South Carolina who was the victim of medical malpractice, and the insurance carrier for the facility where the malpractice occurred had already reached out to her. They wanted her to give a statement over the phone, in which she would describe what happened, what type of injuries she had, and what she was going through medically. She wanted to know if that was a good idea. The response to that is, no, it’s not a good idea. I can’t really imagine a context in which it is a good idea for anyone to, on their own, attempt to give a statement to any type of insurance carrier. It’s just not a good idea.
You really need to have a trial attorney who has experience in handling medical malpractice cases. You want to have that attorney with you at the time you give any type of statement, because there’s nothing good that will come from you attempting to give a statement on your own. Things will get misrepresented, maybe not intentionally, but they’ll still get misrepresented. You want to make sure that you have an experienced medical malpractice attorney with you when you do give that statement.
If anyone out there has been the victim in a medical malpractice case, please give our office a call. We’d be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.
