Are You A Victim Of Medical Malpractice?
Here’s What You Need To Do Next.
If you believe that you are a victim of medical malpractice, here’s what you should do next:
Seek medical attention: Your health and wellbeing should be your top priority. If you are experiencing any negative symptoms or complications as a result of the medical treatment you received, seek immediate medical attention from a different healthcare provider or hospital.
Document everything: Documenting everything related to your medical treatment is crucial. Make sure to keep a detailed record of all medical records, bills, prescriptions, and any other relevant information related to your treatment. Also, write down your recollection of the events leading up to the malpractice incident, and note any conversations or interactions with the healthcare provider or hospital staff. Some doctors and healthcare providers may deny that they’re liable in case of an injury.
Contact the healthcare provider or hospital: It’s important to communicate with the healthcare provider or hospital to express your concerns and seek a resolution. You can try to speak with the provider or hospital directly, or file a complaint with their patient advocate or customer service department.
Consult with a medical malpractice attorney:Medical malpractice attorneys like Merson Law can help you understand your legal rights and options. They can review your medical records and help determine if you have a case. It’s important to seek legal advice as soon as possible, as there are typically time limits for filing a medical malpractice claim.
Medical malpractice can happen in any healthcare setting where medical treatment is provided, including:
Brooklyn Hospitals: Hospitals are complex institutions with a wide range of medical services and treatments. Malpractice can occur during surgery, emergency room visits, medication management, and other aspects of hospital care.
Brooklyn clinics and Brooklyn medical offices: Medical malpractice can occur in outpatient clinics and medical offices where patients receive a variety of medical services, including consultations, diagnostic testing, and treatments.
Brooklyn Nursing homes and long-term care facilities: Patients in nursing homes and long-term care facilities may be especially vulnerable to medical malpractice, as they often have complex medical needs and require ongoing medical care.

Brooklyn Ambulances and Brooklyn emergency medical services (EMS): Malpractice can occur during emergency medical transport or other aspects of EMS care.
