What Should I Do If I’ve Been a Victim of Nurse Malpractice?

If you suspect you have been a victim of nurse malpractice, there are certain actions you can take to help you have the best case possible.

Ask for Your Medical Records

It is always in your best interest to keep a diligently organized file of your medical records. This can tremendously help you because the success of your case will rely on the evidence you can produce.

Your medical records should include the following information:

  • The symptoms you have experienced.
  • Your medical history.
  • The tests you have endured.
  • The medications prescribed to you.

This information is often useful in proving that a nurse committed medical malpractice.

Maintain a Record of Your Health

As you continue receiving care, keep a journal with notes about your health. Be sure to explain the following:

  • The symptoms you experience due to medical negligence.
  • How the medical mistake has affected your life/lifestyle.
  • Other life-related elements to consider as a result of your injury.

It’s best to keep a daily journal to maintain a consistent record of the precise harm you sustained due to the nurse’s error.

Avoid Posting on Social Media

While it can be tempting to seek solace from your friends and family on social media after enduring a medical malpractice injury, it’s in your best interest to avoid posting about what you endured on social media platforms at all.

What you post on social media can be used against you, so it’s best to avoid posting about your injury altogether until the conclusion of your case.

Seek Medical Malpractice Representation

One of the best things you can do for the success of your case is to speak with a skilled nurse malpractice attorney about what happened. Having experienced representation on your behalf can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.
