Avoid Having a Medical Malpractice Case

As a patient, things go wrong for a number of reasons, but you may be able to avoid certain errors by being educated and advocating for yourself. In situations involving surgery, you want to make sure you know how to prepare for the surgery, you want to know what the risks are and how to properly recover from the surgery.

When a doctor prescribes medication for you or a loved one, you want to make sure that you remind your doctor of any other medication you are taking and ask about possible interactions and side effects. You also want to confirm the dosage instructions your medical provider gives you.

If you feel like your doctor isn’t properly treating your condition, if results from tests seem to be delayed, or you have question about your treatment protocol, you should speak up. By advocating for yourself, asking questions and seeking a second opinion you may be able to avoid a potentially serious medical malpractice situation.
