Should I Contact a Lawyer If I Think My Doctor Made a Mistake?

X-Rays Spinal CordSome mistakes committed by a doctor are innocent and do not amount to medical malpractice. However, there are other mistakes that should never been made. Some of these preventable mistakes may be grounds for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit. If a patient or family member of a patient has any question as to a doctor who has made a mistake, or as to whether or not the action or inaction constitutes medical malpractice, I strongly urge them to contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney so that the circumstances of the care and treatment can be carefully investigated.

The investigation process often requires the attorney to obtaining the appropriate medical records and appropriate imaging studies, and employing one or more experts to review the injured patient's case. It is after that thorough investigation that they would then be able to determine if, in fact, the mistake in question is due to medical malpractice, or that the mistake that does not amount to malpractice and is something that can reasonably occur as a result of the care and treatment given.

At times, it is initially difficult to determine if a mistake is a result of medical malpractice or not. If you have any question as to regarding the mistake of a doctor and the possibility of medical malpractice, do not hesitate to contact an experienced California medical malpractice attorney. The knowledgeable legal professionals at the law firm of Corsiglia McMahon & Allard, L.L.P., are prepared to conduct a thorough investigation to determine, based on facts, that there is a case based on the mistake.

Client Reviews
My experience with Attorney Brad Corsiglia during my recent medical malpractice case was nothing short of amazing given the very stressful circumstances. I was fortunate to find Brad highly recommended from a mutual contact and from the very beginning of the process, Brad was truly engaged and knowledgeable in understanding my case and providing input on what avenues were available to me.
