Malpractice cases can be very complicated and tough to prove. The following list of Do’s and Don’ts can help ensure you make the right decisions in such a situation and not make a mistake that might cost you dearly down the road.
What to Do In Case Of Industrial, Chemical Or Explosive Accident:
Seek legal advice
Insist on certified copies
Insist on certified copies of all medical records relating to your treatment. Medical records are confidential but as the patient you have a right to all records—including charges.
Write a diary or ledger
Write a diary or ledger with notes on everything the doctor, medical facility, and staff told or instructed you to do.
Keep an accurate chronological record
Keep an accurate chronological record of when you first sought treatment, the names of any specialists you were referred to, outpatient care, etc.
Seek a second opinion
Seek a second opinion from a qualified doctor but do not share your suspicions of malpractice with the second doctor.
Cease receiving care from the source you suspect
Cease receiving care from the source you suspect might be committing malpractice against you, unless that provider is in the midst of a complex treatment and it would be inappropriate or detrimental to make an immediate change.
Seek the advice and representation of an attorney
Seek the advice and representation of an attorney who concentrates his/her practice in the area of medical malpractice, as very few attorneys are competent in handling these cases.
