Medical Malpractice

What to Know if You Suspect Medical Malpractice Happened to Your Child

What should you do if you suspect your child’s medical treatment was the cause of a health problem? The first thing to do is talk to your child’s doctor and ask questions about what happened. Be sure you write down every question you have and take notes on all the answers so you can refer back later. The information is often overwhelming, so taking notes allows you to process what you are being told on your own time. If there is something that still concerns you, speak up and ask for clarification or more information.

Second Opinions Are a Great Way of Seeing the Truth

You may also want to seek a second opinion from another doctor. Requesting a second opinion shows respect for your child’s current care as well as an expression of concern for their future wellbeing. You want someone who will work with your child’s physician now and in the future to ensure they receive optimal care.

If you are not satisfied with the answers you receive, you should consider speaking with an experienced malpractice attorney. Lawsuits are very complicated and not something to take lightly, but if the facts of your case indicate that negligence might have occurred, it is important for you to seek out legal advice. This can begin the process of an investigation where more information could be found. The more information you find out now, the easier it will be to determine if there was any form of malpractice that occurred in nearly all cases.

Make Sure You Fully Understand Medical Malpractice

Another reason to involve an attorney is to ensure that you fully understand what goes into medical malpractice. People make mistakes on occasion, and medical professionals are still people. Sometimes a mistake may happen but there was no ill intention behind an action or inaction that led to an injury. However, it often takes a full investigation to ensure that you know if there was any neglect or malintent that led to what is going on now with your child’s health. To understand malpractice fully, and to see if the information surrounding your child’s health is off enough to warrant an investigation, please do not hesitate to reach out to us here at Grewer Law today.
