Over the last couple of weeks we have received a lot of calls from women who were seeking help regarding problems dealing with complications stemming from a C-Section or tubal ligation. These women wanted to know the next step in the process. Were they the victim of medical malpractice, and if so what should they do next?
If you are reading this article or watching the linked video, regardless of whether you speak to an attorney right away, you should request your records from the procedure. This way you can have a better idea as to what happened.
Not only is it a good idea to have your records already if you do decide to contact a Maryland medical malpractice attorney down the line, you can use your medical records to discuss any future treatment with your doctors.
The reason your attorney will want to take a look at your medical records is because he or she will use your records with a medical expert to determine whether your treating doctor fell below the standard of care. Having a medical expert to testify to this is a must in a Maryland medical malpractice claim.
To speak with someone further about this we invite you to give us a call at 301-850-4832. We answer questions like yours all the time and we would be glad to hear your story.
