Were You the Victim of Medical Malpractice?
There are few guarantees in the medical field. Treatments, medications, and surgeries are not foolproof, and you might spend weeks or months visiting doctors and specialists for a health condition without making much headway. This is not necessarily an indication of medical malpractice, as some illnesses and injuries do not respond well to treatment.
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor deviates from the accepted standard of care and causes harm to a patient as a result. For example, a doctor who failed to order imaging for someone presenting with symptoms of a broken bone would have committed medical malpractice.
If you are unsure whether your poor outcome was the result of doctor error or negligence, a Farmington medical malpractice lawyer from Buckingham & Vega Law Firm can advise you of your legal options.
What To Do if You Are the Victim of a Medical Error
If you were harmed due to the negligent, reckless, or wrongful actions of a medical professional, we advise taking the following actions:
Seek a Second Opinion
Your health should be your number one priority, which is why we encourage all victims of medical malpractice to seek a second opinion or additional care from a different doctor. Your new doctor should be able to:
- Assess your current condition and any symptoms
- Prescribe new medications or order refills of current prescriptions
- Order imaging or blood tests
- Diagnose new or existing health conditions
- Prescribe a treatment plan
- Refer you to specialists
Your health and well-being is your number one priority, your finances are second. After you’ve met with a doctor for a second opinion, schedule a free case evaluation with a Farmington medical malpractice lawyer. We never charge for the first meeting.
Begin documenting relevant information from the moment you suspect something might be wrong. Your Farmington medical malpractice attorney will use this information to begin building a strong case that demonstrates how you suffered at the hands of the medical establishment. Here is the type of information our attorneys are looking for:
- Medical records that show diagnoses, treatments, prescription medications, surgeries, test results, and more
- Dates of medical appointments, who you saw, and what was addressed
- Dates of calls with the insurance company, who you spoke with, and what you discussed
Do not worry if you don’t have all of the above information documented. One of our first steps in any medical malpractice lawsuit is helping our clients gather relevant information necessary for the claim.
