Mistakes to Avoid After Medical Malpractice
Did you or a loved one suffer a serious injury by a doctor or hospital? Could this injury have been prevented with proper care? You may be able to recover compensation for your injuries but there are some important steps you must take. Watch this video to learn about the mistakes to avoid after medical malpractice to protect your rights.
In New York, when people go through the unfortunate situation of suffering through medical malpractice, we sometimes see clients who waited too long before they tried to figure out if something was done wrong. There are strict timelines with respect to these medical malpractice claims. It cannot hurt– as long as you do feel that something wrong happened and you want to seek out your rights to compensation – to immediately seek a lawyer. Nothing good will come from waiting.
Even if you don’t miss a deadline for your right to recovery (whether you have to file a certain notice or whether you have to file a lawsuit) even if you’re able to find someone in time that protects those rights, it’s important to seek out an attorney immediately. Early on, you may be able to find out the facts more readily. You may be able to investigate it and do things that you wouldn’t be able to do after the passage of time. This is something that you should immediately seek out counsel for, to make sure that your rights are being protected, you don’t miss these deadlines, and that you’re giving yourself the best benefit in terms of figuring out what happened – if something was done wrong – and getting recovery if you’re entitled to it.
