What is the first step a medical malpractice attorney would take to pursue the claim?
The first step in pursuing a medical malpractice case is suspecting that one may have been the victim of medical malpractice.
While not every bad result is due to medical malpractice, one who develops a “gut feeling” that something was wrong should consult a qualified attorney to review the matter, who often will consult with medical professionals.
This process often involves obtaining and reviewing medical records and other pertinent information.
If it is determined that one has a good case, the next step is usually to give written notice of the claim to the individuals or entities that are believed to have committed the medical malpractice.
