Get help making your medical malpractice claim

Medical malpractice is extremely frustrating in part because the very people you placed your trust in are the ones who caused you harm. Malpractice can happen for any number of reasons, from someone writing down the wrong patient name to forgetting to note an allergy on your chart.

Medical malpractice can cost a patient their life. It can also result in serious injuries that require surgery or ongoing treatment to correct. Sometimes, injuries aren't able to be corrected, and a patient is left to live with the damage that was done by the mistakes made.

As a patient who has been the victim of malpractice, your priority has to be your health. If you were badly hurt, you deserve to be compensated for that, to receive treatment and to be able to afford to support yourself.

What happens if malpractice occurs and you want to file a claim?

If you want to file a claim against the medical provider(s) who harmed you, you should reach out to a medical malpractice attorney. Your attorney will discuss the facts of your case with you. You should also get a second opinion on your health from a new medical provider and see if they're willing to state what they've found in court. If not, you can ask your attorney which doctors they'd suggest who typically work with the court system in your area.

Our website has more on medical malpractice and why it's important to assert your rights if you are hurt by the negligence or actions of a physician or other medical provider.
