Was it Really Medical Malpractice That Caused my Injury?

Determining whether a bad medical outcome was a negligent mistake amounting to medical malpractice or a potential risk that could not be avoided is not easy.  However, it is important to investigate and determine the answer.

Typically, determining whether a bad outcome was medical malpractice requires the skilled help of a Pennsylvania medical malpractice lawyer. However, asking yourself the following three questions can be helpful even before you contact an attorney:

  • Were you informed of the possible outcome prior to treatment?
  • Did you notice anything out of the ordinary before, during or after the treatment?
  • Has another doctor expressed confusion or concern over your outcome and mentioned that something may have gone wrong?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then it is worth considering whether medical negligence was responsible for your injury.
