When Should I Call A Medical Malpractice Lawyer?

Medical malpractice comes in various forms: a wrong prescription, incorrect medical results, an ill-advised procedure, and more. There are many types, and it’s okay to feel lost.

If you feel there’s something wrong after getting a medical checkup or procedure done and you suspect it’s malpractice, you need the right legal guidance. Our professional team at The Valente Law Group can provide legal advice.


How To Spot Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice can happen when you least expect it. However, it’s important to know the most common situations to be prepared if it happens. 

One of the most common situations that medical malpractice can be identified for is after a medical procedure is done. Often, patients can really tell there’s something wrong, or the doctor themselves tells them a mistake was made.

During a medical procedure, there can be errors such as administering drugs that interact negatively with one another during surgery, giving a drug to an allergic patient, failing to intubate or to use the machines correctly, and more. 

Healthcare professionals can also fail to read an X-RAY correctly, the hospital failing to check if an employee has the right degree or certification, making inaccurate diagnoses, refusing to give treatment to a patient, and more. 

When Should You Call a Lawyer?

If you think you’ve suffered an injury or lost a loved one due to the mistake of a medical professional, you should call a reputable medical malpractice lawyer or firm. They can guide you, ask you questions, investigate, and determine whether you have a medical malpractice case.
