  • When appropriate care is not rendered, you should speak with an  Attorney to determine that you are receiving proper care.

2.) Obtaining Your Medical Records

If a physician tells you that something has occurred because it was their fault, you should ask that physician for a copy of your medical records. You should take them to a seasoned medical malpractice lawyer who can perform an evaluation for you. Here at Morgenstern and Herd we have a medical background. We evaluate and look at our client’s medical records in order to determine whether or not we can obtain an expert who will testify on your behalf and help seek recovery for the injuries that occurred to a physician, especially a physician who admits he’s at fault.

Summary:

  • If a physician tells you that something was their fault you should immediate ask for a copy of your medical records and take them to a medical malpractice attorney

3.) You Should Meet with a Legal Professional

Not every bad outcome means that the surgeon has deviated from the standard of care, so just because you have a bad result doesn’t mean that the doctor didn’t provide you with reasonable care. If you suspect that a bad outcome is the result of negligent care or the failure of the surgeon to provide you with care that would be the minimum care that would be accepted under the reasonable standards of care, you should hire a medical malpractice lawyer so that the lawyer can help you obtain the records and perform an evaluation with experts.

Summary:

  • Just because you had a bad result doesn’t mean the doctor did not provide you with reasonable care
  • If you think that your poor results were a result of negligent care, then you should start looking for a medical malpractice lawyer
