Filing a Medical Malpractice Claim? Know What to Do.
Sadly, even the doctors, hospitals, and medical professionals we trust every day can make mistakes. While the majority of medical mistakes are minor and easily corrected, serious errors can cause severe injury, a crippling disability, or possibly even death.
Every year, millions place their faith in medical professionals to make vital healthcare decisions. A mistake made by a medical provider can bring lifelong consequences.
If you or someone you love has suffered serious injuries due to medical malpractice, contact the medical malpractice attorneys at Carter Mario Law Firm. You may be entitled to compensation for further medical treatment, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
How Do You Proceed?
Below are a few tips to ensure that you are prepared for your medical malpractice case:
- Contact the Medical Professional and Medical Licensing Board: Before you file a claim, contact the medical professional involved. Many will perform corrective services. If this does not help, contact the licensing board in your state. They can provide guidance on next steps.
- Know How Long You Have to File: All civil claims, including those for medical malpractice, have time limits known as statutes of limitations. Each state sets its own statute of limitations for certain claims. In Connecticut, you have two years after injury to file malpractice claims.
- Get a Certificate of Merit: Many states require a Certificate of Merit to determine if injuries were the result of negligence. To get a Certificate of Merit, an expert must review your medical records. An attorney can file this for you and confirm that you spoke with a medical expert.
- Consider an Out-of-Court Settlement: A medical malpractice case can be costly and time-consuming. If you have an opportunity to settle out of court, you should consider it. However, if you believe you have a very strong case, consider pursuing a larger settlement in court.
