You should never hesitate to hire a medical malpractice lawyer if you’ve been the victim of medical malpractice or a pharmaceutical error. Some patients hold off on consulting a lawyer because they trust their doctor enough to know it was an honest mistake. They sometimes think they’ll admit to it and compensate the patient.
After 30 years of handling medical malpractice cases here at Wilson Kehoe Winingham, we’ve almost seen it all.
Proving Your Case
It’s essential you start gathering evidence before consulting a lawyer. Organize information detailing what your medical treatments were, the name of your doctor, what prescriptions you were taking, etc. These are simple things you can do alone, if you’re able. If not, we can help with this after requesting your medical records from your provider.
Once we have your records and the chance to go through them in detail, we’ll try to find further evidence in proving your case. Even if it means hiring a personal investigator (something we frequently do for car accident cases), we’ll do it if necessary. Finding evidence does take some time in medical malpractice cases, yet it’s essential for thoroughness, no matter if your doctor admits to a mistake.
In most medical malpractice cases, we hire medical experts to look through your medical records to find the cause of your injuries. That individual will provide their expert opinion and even testify in trial, if your case goes that far.
