What do I do if I have suffered harm as the result of a medical mistake?

If you or a loved one has suffered harm as the result of a medical error, you may have questions concerning what to do next. Adding confusion to the issue, often medical professionals are reluctant to discuss or reveal that mistakes or errors occurred, leading patients and their families wondering who they can talk to. As a result, even if filing a lawsuit may be the furthest thing from your mind after suffering an injury during a medical visit, the best course of action is often to seek the advice of an experienced San Diego birth injury lawyer right away.

An experienced medical malpractice lawyer can begin the process of obtaining medical records and determining just what happened to cause your harm. The first step typically involves a client interview. During the initial consultation, a person who has suffered an injury can provide a complete version of the relevant events and provide crucial details concerning his or her version of events. This narrative will then provide a frame of reference to begin gathering records and evidence to determine what mistakes may have been made. It will also provide critical information regarding potential damages. After the relevant records are collected, an expert will typically conduct a review to determine whether medical malpractice has occurred. At this point, the attorney and client can discuss whether a potential claim exists, and the next steps for obtaining justice. For more information or if you believe you have suffered harm as the result of a medical error, please contact the experienced San Diego medical malpractice law firm of Bostwick & Peterson, LLP for an immediate consultation.
