How Does One Know If He Or She Is A Victim Of Medical Malpractice Or Negligence?

Unfortunately, many victims of medical malpractice or negligence never realize it. This fact is confirmed by national data which reflect that up to 90% of documented malpractice events remain unreported and unclaimed by patients. At Shevlin Smith, our experience has shown that patients cannot depend upon their health care providers to admit their mistakes. Patients also cannot depend upon subsequent health care providers to identify prior negligence as the cause of their injury. A victim of medical malpractice must be proactive in determining whether negligence has occurred. This means that you must obtain your medical records (or have an attorney do so for you). You must find an experienced attorney to review and analyze the medical records. A well-established attorney in this area of the law will not a fee charge for such an analysis.
