What to Do if You Suspect Medical Malpractice

If you suspect that you were the victim of medical negligence, you need to move quickly. Most medical malpractice suits must be brought within 2 years of the incident. This may sound like a long time, but before a lawsuit may be brought, you need to find a Fort Lauderdale medical malpractice lawyer who has the skills and expertise to investigate your claim and handle your case, and who, in addition, is willing and able to represent you. This may take longer than you think.

Once you have a lawyer, that lawyer needs to conduct an investigation to determine what happened. You need to find out if indeed there was any medical negligence and if that negligence was a cause of the injuries or death. This usually requires the assistance of expert medical doctors. Once again, this may take longer than you think.

If you, your lawyer and the expert medical doctors all agree that there was medical malpractice, you must then file a “pre-suit” notice and go through the pre-suit process. This “pre-suit” is required before you can actually file a lawsuit.

So it is absolutely critical to quickly find a lawyer who can handle your case. At the same time, it is crucial that you hire a lawyer with the skills and expertise to properly handle your case.
