What should I do if I'm a victim of medical malpractice?
Every case is unique. But in many instances, the initial actions you take after an injury or illness caused by a medical professional are the same. Specifically, it's critical that you:
- Seek immediate medical attention - If you or a loved one sustained a serious injury due to an error made by a medical professional, it's important that you receive emergency medical treatment right away. If such injuries are not treated immediately, they could develop into an even more serious health problem.
- Document your injuries - Write down exactly how you feel. And if there are noticeable physical changes, take photographs of your injuries. That way, there won't be any doubts later about the severity of your injuries.
- Contact our law firm - The sooner you contact us, the sooner our attorney can help you with your case. George has years of experience working with people injured by medical professionals, and he's eager to work with you.
How can a lawyer help me with my case?
Don't underestimate the complexity of your case. Even if a medical professional clearly made a mistake, don't assume you will be fairly compensated for your injuries. The person who made the mistake or an insurance company or hospital might deny any wrongdoing. Even if they admit responsibility, you may feel pressure to accept a lowball settlement. They may suggest you were at least partly to blame.
That's not right. But you can put the power of an experienced attorney to work for you. George S. Johnson can be with you every step of the way, from investigating your injury to filing a lawsuit on your behalf if necessary. He also knows how to negotiate effectively with health care companies, insurance providers and anyone else who stands in the way of getting justice.
This may be your only opportunity to get the money you need and deserve for your losses. You shouldn't have to pay for someone else's mistakes. Make sure you and your family receive the compensation you deserve for medical expenses, follow-up care, additional operations, physical therapy and anything else you need to get better.
