If you believe you may have been a victim of medical malpractice, it is important that you begin to take several actions immediately. As we have discussed in previous blogs, time is of the essence when it comes to medical malpractice. The sooner you take action against medical malpractice, the sooner you can begin the process of justice.
What to Do if You Suspect Medical Malpractice
Obtain Your Medical Records
You are entitled to copies of records chronicling your treatment. It is important to have copies of this documentation for yourself for use in your case.
Save Your Bills
Keep all of your bills for your medical expenses, including treatment, medications, visits to the doctor, and travel. You will also want to document your loss of earnings for any missed work. This is important for determining the amount of economic compensation you may receive.
