What Are The Steps To Filing A Medical Malpractice Claim? As a law firm dealing with many medical malpractice cases, we’ve developed a set of procedures we use to begin each case. From there, every client is different, and we work with them individually, compassionately and with a singular purpose in mind: to stop their suffering and help them get on with their lives. Here are the steps we follow and that we recommend if you wish to pursue your case involving incompetence of health care professionals:
- Secure the services of a qualified lawyer. Timing is critical. There are statutes of limitations that disqualify your case if not followed. Also, there are often specific requirements — medical review boards, expert testimony, filing of affidavits and sometimes even serving an intent to file suit — that must be met in advance of your case being filed. Your medical malpractice attorney manages these things for you.
- Obtain your medical records. This is the evidence your attorney needs to evaluate your case and to bring in medical experts to determine how best to proceed.
- Notify the insurance company, health care practitioner and medical facility. Your attorney should do this for you. Your malpractice attorney or wrongful death attorney acts as your buffer between these parties and can sometimes negotiate a fair settlement without further legal proceedings.
- Conform with pre-suit requirements. Since tort reform, there are often several hurdles with which to comply before filing a medical malpractice action. Your attorney should take care of all these issues for you.
- File the actual complaint. This is when the lawsuit is filed. Most medical malpractice lawsuits settle before trial.
