How Can You File a Medical Malpractice Claim

Doctor/patient relationships are typically full of faith and trust that they have your best interests in mind. That’s why medical malpractice claims can be so incredibly frustrating. If you believe that the quality of care that you or a loved one received was inadequate, you may be able to file a medical malpractice claim. Failure to properly diagnose, failure to properly treat, prescription errors, birth injuries and emergency room errors are a few of the most common instances of medical negligence.

How to File a Medical Malpractice Claim:

  • Get Copies of Your Medical Records – You need to gather evidence for your medical malpractice case. Request a copy of your records. You will need to sign a release form that allows your attorney, as well as any defendants’ attorneys the right to view your personal medical records.
  • Notify Your Insurance Company – Let your insurance company know about your intention to file a lawsuit. They will likely perform an internal review that may be able to help you settle before filing.
  • Contact an Attorney – You will need to contact an attorney to assist you with your case. An attorney will make sure that your case is filed before the statute of limitations is expired, as well as ensure that any pre-suit requirements are met.
