How to Know If You’ve Been a Victim of Medical Malpractice/Surgical Injury

Have you recently had surgery that’s taken a long time to heal? Are you dealing with unusual pain and side effects since your medical procedure? These are some signs that you have sustained a surgical injury--whether that is due to medical malpractice or due to human error, the courts will have to ultimately decide. However, if you’ve experienced prolonged and irritating symptoms since your surgery, it’s possible that you are the victim of a medical injury.

Doctors are not infallible and sometimes they do make errors, legitimate errors, that will hold up in a court of law. But if a doctor has put your health and safety at risk by not taking the correct steps to ensure that your surgical injury does not cause you more pain and suffering in the long run, it is worth it to get a lawyer to look into your case to see if you may have a good chance of going forward with a personal injury suit.

Anyone who has lost a loved one to an unexpected surgical injury knows just how deep the pain can run, and preventing doctors who do not follow the rules from hurting more people is an important role that personal injury attorneys play. Do not hesitate if you suspect that you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice.

Collect Evidence and Information

Once you’ve contacted a personal injury attorney to help you out with your case, it’s a good idea to collect all of the information that you can find on the medical procedure, such as hospital records, receipts, prescription information, and doctor’s appointments. It’s always best to go into your case with more information than you truly need, since the doctors and hospital will employ highly-paid attorneys to argue for a skewed version of events.

Typically, your attorney will help you through this phase of your case--they can assist you in finding the right forms and information to support your side and show that your doctors or surgeons were irresponsible when it came to your surgical injury. It’s also intelligent to keep a record or a log of days missed from work due to your injury, as this can help to show that the surgical injury has affected your quality of life.

The more information, the better when it comes to your personal injury case. Any evidence that can be collected to show irresponsibility and neglect on the part of the doctors will be helpful to demonstrating fault and helping you to gain a large settlement to cover lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
