You can seek compensation after suffering medical negligence

Medical malpractice cases form in the most dire of circumstances; a patient suffered an injury because a doctor performed the wrong surgery, a baby suffered brain damage because an OB-GYN didn't recognize signs of trouble, or a patient suffers a life-altering infection because of improper sanitation in the hospital. All of these situations could be like one that causes you to suffer an injury. When you do, it's important to know that you do have the right to seek out compensation.

For your medical malpractice case, you need to make sure you have many documents prepared. These include things like your diagnosis, X-rays, MRI scans, and billing paperwork.

You will also want to collect all forms, letters, and documents that you've received either before, during, or following the incident. You'll need not only medical records but also mental health records if you've had to see a therapist about your injury or as part of your treatment. Gather information on your prescription medications, and make sure you get your insurance information collected.

If you want to file a claim to collect lost wages, you'll need to prove the amount you've lost. Collect evidence by showing how much time you've missed from work, average pay over time, and the coverage you have received so far. Collect your tax returns or pay stubs for the best evidence of your income. Your employer should be able to provide these items to you if you don't have them in your possession.
