Ask These Questions When You Suspect Malpractice (Part 1)

March 7, 2014

Knowing when malpractice has occurred and been the cause of injuries is not always easy to decipher, especially when a person may be suffering from various health impairments. However, when malpractice is suspected, there are some specific questions that a person can ask him- or herself to get a better idea of whether they may have been victimized by malpractice and when it’s probably a good time to consult with an attorney to learn more about legal options for compensation. 

Were you diagnosed without any medical testing? If so, this could be a sign of malpractice, and you should call Ryan & Brown for more info about your rights.

Below and in an upcoming second part of this blog, we will outline some specific questions that people should think about when it comes to concerns about malpractice. If you suspect malpractice and are ready to receive some professional advice specific to your case, the military medical malpractice lawyers at Ryan & Brown encourage you to meet with us for a free initial consult.

Here’s what to ask yourself when you think you’ve been the victim of malpractice:

  • Was I diagnosed without any diagnostic testing?

    If yes, there may be a problem. Receiving a diagnosis without any medical testing is generally not a good sign because it’s highly unlikely that a proper diagnosis can be given (particularly for more serious conditions) without performing certain tests, like MRIs, blood tests, CT scans, biopsies, etc.

    If you have diagnosed without any medical testing to back up the diagnosis, you may want to get a second medical opinion about your health, as well as a legal opinion about options for moving forward.

  • Did the doctor even ask me about my symptoms or medical history?

    If your answer is no, again there may be a problem. Part of a proper diagnosis typically involves a discussion of all of your symptoms (including how long you have been experiencing them).

    When doctors don’t talk to you about your symptoms or your medical history before offering you a diagnosis, take this as a big red flag that you may have been the victim of malpractice.

Look for the second part of this blog for some more important questions to ask yourself when you think you may have been the victim of malpractice in a military hospital (or in any medical facility).
