How Do You Know If You Have a Claim?

Most medical malpractice cases involve obvious errors on the part of the hospital or doctor. If you are saying to yourself, “That shouldn't have happened,” then you should at least speak with an attorney to discuss whether you have a potential claim.

You may have a medical malpractice if you or your loved one suffered injuries or complications as a result of any of the following:

  • Misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, or failure to diagnose
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Bed sores and/or hospital infections
  • Birth injuries (to either the infant or the mother)
  • Incorrect medication dosages and other prescription errors
  • Surgical mistakes, such as incorrect surgery site or leaving foreign objects in the body

This list is not comprehensive. If you feel that something isn’t right, reach out to one of our Daytona Beach medical malpractice lawyers as soon as possible. In our practice, we have learned that patients and their families are very perceptive at knowing when a medical error has occurred.

What to Do If You Think You Have a Claim

To see if you have a claim, first, contact our firm and speak with one of our legal assistants, who will take down the initial information and immediately discuss it with one of our attorneys. The attorney will review the claim and personally call you that day to discuss your concerns. At that time, they will likely schedule a meeting with you to discuss the case in more detail. The attorney will request that you sign medical authorizations so that the medical records can be obtained, which usually takes between two to three weeks. Once the records have been received, the attorney will review the records to determine if a potential claim exists.

How Much Do Medical Malpractice Suits Cost?

There is no cost for the investigation and no upfront fee for you. We do not charge our clients for any fees or costs unless a recovery is made on their claims. At our initial meeting, the attorney will go over the Attorney Fee Contract with you. Typically, the contract will provide that the attorney will receive a set percentage of any recovery on your negligence claim. In dealing with any law firm concerning representation, you should always remember that there is no legal requirement that a lawyer charge a client a set fee or a percentage of money recovered in a case. You have the right to talk with the lawyer about the proposed fee and to bargain about the rate or percentage, as in any other contract.
