Question:

What mistakes should I avoid in my medical malpractice case?

Answer:

Mistakes to Avoid in a Medical Malpractice CaseA few months ago, we spoke to a man in North Augusta who was the victim of medical malpractice at a local hospital. In going through the facts of the case with him, I noticed that he had made a very big mistake early on. That mistake was waiting a very long time to hire an attorney. In this case, he’d waited months before getting an attorney involved. The reason that it’s important to go ahead and get a trial attorney involved as soon as possible in a medical malpractice case is that these cases are more complicated. They take longer to prosecute. They’re more fact-intensive. You have to have RNs and doctors who are able to go through medical records to be able to determine whether or not the entity – the nurse, the doctor, or the facility – to which you’re alleging negligence actually did in fact breach the standard of care. That takes a good deal of time.

You want to make sure that you have an attorney who is competent, who has handled medical malpractice cases in the past, who has taken medical malpractice cases to trial, and who knows the process in and out. 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.
