MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CLAIMS
Key Steps To Follow When Pursuing a Medical Malpractice Claim
1. Find out how much time you have to legally bring forth a claim. All civil claims, including medical malpractice cases, have time limits as to when they must be filed. These limits are called "statutes of limitations." You are required to file your claim within a certain time period from when the injury occurred, or was discovered, or you risk waiving your rights to recover money for yours or your loved ones injuries.
2. Check the statutes of limitations in your particular state to ensure the time period for filing your claim does not run out.
3. Request a copy of the medical records from the provider in which you feel is at fault for your injuries due to their negligence.
4. Find the right attorney to help evaluate your claim.
