Suffered a Medical Malpractice...Ask Yourself These Questions 

Medical Malpractice cases arise when a medical patient has been injured through the improper action (or inaction) of a medical healthcare professional or medical facility.

Licensed medical professionals not only include doctors and surgeons but also chiropractors, nurses, therapists, and psychologists.


Ask yourself these questions to determine whether you have a potential medical malpractice claim:

  • Have I or has a member of my family suffered a severe or permanent injury while under the care of a doctor, surgeon, hospital or other health care provider?
  • Do I or did a member of my family expect my injury to be more severe or devastating than was expected from the original diagnosis or trauma.
  • Has it become aware to me through another doctor or health care provider that the treatment received was improper, or that the outcome was strange?
  • Do I have strong doubts about the ability and skill of a doctor or other medical provider and the correctness of the care received?
  • Has my medical condition been kept hush-hush?
  • Has my insurance company questioned the specific procedures, tests or diagnoses used by my doctor?
  • Do I have concerns that a medical treatment may have seriously affected my health?
  • Was I injured because of improperly functioning medical equipment or unsanitary conditions?
  • Did my doctor fail to send me to a specialist when required?
  • Was I injured by a prescription drug or the failure of my doctor to properly prescribe and administer my medications?
  • Are there any other reasons which cause me to believe that medical errors were committed?
