What are some things that you should bring with you when you first see your Maryland medical malpractice attorney? The reason these things are important is because they will help your attorney initially asses your case.
Remember, your attorney is trying to determine where the medical professional broke the safety rules, or standard of care in your case. If this can be determined then you have a better chance of the attorney taking your case. It is also a good idea to organize your information so that you can get the most out of your meeting. You may want to bring the following with you:
* Any letters or other information that the hospital or medical provider sent to you, this includes anything from the risk management office.
* Any pictures you may have taken of your injuries; any letters or information that you may have received from your medical provider which is relevant to your medical history.
* Any medical bills you may have stemming from the procedure.
* Any notes you may have taken which are relevant to your treatment or condition
* And importantly any medical records you may have secured following the procedure (this includes surgical notes, post operative notes, discharge summery, etc…).
Remember this list is not exhaustive but will get you thinking in the right direction of the things you may need to bring to your first meeting.
