Your doctor has just made a mistake in treating you and you are now wondering can you handle representing yourself in a medical malpractice claim against the doctor and or hospital in which you were treated. Want to hear the answer to the question? Stay tuned. Hello, I’m Maryland medical malpractice attorney Marcus Boston and I want to talk with you today about not whether you can represent yourself in your medical malpractice case, but SHOULD you represent yourself. As to the question of can you do it, of course you can. As to the question of is it WISE to do it, no it is not.
If you have reads our books and articles, and watched some of our other videos, you know that we said that there are times in which a person can represent themselves. For example, if you have been involved in a small car collision and you want the case over as fast as possible, and you have not been following up with your treatment, then representing yourself in a case like that will probably not be a bad idea at all.
However, with a medical malpractice case it is a different ball game. There are just too many traps that could wreck your case. For example, before you can even get into court you will have to have a medical expert go on record saying that your treating doctor messed up. Many of these doctors will not work with you unless you have an attorney with you. Again, of course you can represent yourself in a medical malpractice case but it is probably not a wise course of action.
