RedStone Law assists victims of medical malpractice in recovering from the doctors and healthcare providers who caused their injuries. Medical malpractice, or medical negligence, may be committed by any healthcare provider. This includes doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and technicians who provide patient care. Medical negligence can occur in any setting where healthcare providers interact with patients, including hospitals, doctors’ offices, clinics, nursing homes, ambulatory surgery centers, mental health clinics, and diagnostic clinics.
A competent, experienced medical malpractice attorney will undergo a significant amount of investigatory work before filing a medical malpractice claim. A careful review of the medical records, consulting with medical specialists, and evaluating potential damages are necessary before accepting a medical malpractice case. This process can take several months, mainly because it often takes six to eight weeks to obtain the medical records from healthcare providers.
If you have suffered from medical malpractice, it is essential that you contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney in a timely manner. Tennessee and Kentucky law requires appropriate legal action within one year of the event causing injury or death, although there are some rare exceptions. A delay in contacting a lawyer could result in a failure to timely file your otherwise valid legal claim.
