Uncovering The Truth

What Should I Do if I Suspect Medical Negligence?

Obtain your medical records. Whenever you see a doctor or go to the hospital, always ask for your medical records immediately and store them in a safe place. One of CPFN’s families suspected a problem and tried to get their medical records after the fact; it took months! When the mother finally got the records, she was told by the hospital staff that the records had been kept under lock and key. If medical negligence has been at play, doctors and staff may attempt to cover up their mistake by hiding certain records or even re-writing them.

Ask for help to understand the records. The next step is to find someone who understands them; it is nearly impossible for a non-medical professional to comprehend medical jargon. Yet, within those records are the answer to the question: Was my child injured during the birthing process? It is critical that you get the help and guidance of both a medical and legal professional to uncover the truth.

Don’t Wait to Get Help

Each state imposes a deadline, known as a Statute of Limitations, for filing a lawsuit. If you miss the deadline, you can expect to lose the best opportunity to find out the truth about your child’s CP and to recover the compensation your family deserves.
