See How We Can Help
When you believe that you have been injured by a doctor or medical professional who was acting negligently, you need the help of a trusted medical malpractice attorney in Tri-Cities, Washington. We understand that if a doctor has injured you, it can actually be quite difficult to hold them accountable. A doctor or medical professional shouldn’t make negligent mistakes; they have gone through years of training and worked on thousands of patients. However, because of the high standards that doctors are held to, it is important to remember that this is one of the reasons you should hold them accountable for their mistakes. Not only to ensure you receive damages for your injuries but so they do not do this to other patients. Want to speak with us? Call our office.
Understanding Medical Malpractice
When a doctor makes an error, it is not necessarily medical malpractice. We will need to show that this error came with negligence when they made the decision. For example, if you had a difficult disease to diagnose and many doctors in the same situation with the same experience would have made an error in diagnosing you, your doctor may not have committed medical malpractice. On the other hand, if you were misdiagnosed because the doctor did not do their due diligence and another competent doctor would have correctly diagnosed you, then we will look at medical malpractice as the culprit.
What should you do if you suspect medical malpractice has occurred?
When you believe you have been the victim of medical malpractice, you may be tempted to call the hospital and point blame. However, your Tri-Cities attorney for medical malpractice does not believe this is the best first step. When you want to file a claim with a hospital or medical facility regarding medical malpractice, the statute of limitations is enforced. It is important to make sure you speak with your attorney first before notifying the hospital.
Who can I talk with about my injuries?
In today’s world, the first thing you may be tempted to do is go online and post about your injuries. Even if your posts are innocent and you are looking for online support groups or support forums it is important to remember that hospitals have vast resources and their attorneys can probably find your posts. They can use these posts as evidence against you. We recommend seeking help from a therapist to talk through your emotional injuries.
