How Do You Know If You Experienced Medical Or Dental Malpractice?
Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to know if malpractice occurred. Not all cases are obvious. Often, it takes a thorough review by an expert in the field to pinpoint where your provider went wrong.
Any of these red flags may indicate that you experienced malpractice:
- You received a wrong diagnosis
- You didn’t get diagnosed in a timely manner
- You were prescribed the wrong medication or wrong dosage
- You got a second opinion that substantially differed from your original provider
- You weren’t informed of the risks of your procedure
- Your provider isn’t listening to you
- Your treatment wasn’t effective
- You experienced unexpected complications or injuries as a result of treatment
The first step is to seek guidance from a lawyer. We can review your situation and let you know whether it’s worth taking a closer look.
