What Should I Do If I Was Injured By My Doctor?

The first thing you should do if you believe a doctor has committed malpractice is take whatever steps are necessary to ensure that you are no longer in danger. Those steps may include seeking a second opinion or securing a transfer from the hospital in which you have been admitted. Once you are out of danger, contact our firm immediately.

The next step would be to obtain copies of any medical records that would support your case. In most cases, it is important to obtain these records in a way that minimizes suspicion by the healthcare provider. Once we have all relevant medical records, we will do a preliminary evaluation to see if malpractice has, in fact, occurred.

Please note that the attorneys at Simeone & Miller, LLP generally do not charge a fee for our work in determining whether or not you have a legitimate case.

What If My Injury Was a Known Risk of Procedure?

A "known risk of a procedure" is an injury that can occur regardless of whether or not the doctor is negligent in performing the procedure. Many times, this is a valid defense for the physician; however, even if you believe that your injury occurred because it was a known risk, you should still consult with a medical malpractice attorney.

We can help you determine if your injury could have been prevented or avoided with a timely diagnosis.

It's also important to remember that medicine is not an exact science. Sometimes, even minor complications can contribute to a detrimental outcome. The question is: were you appropriately diagnosed by your physician(s) and, if not, would the outcome be different if you were? Our team can help you answer these questions, and more.

Can I Afford to File a Medical Malpractice Claim?

When you work with Simeone & Miller, we will advance the costs and expenses in your case. These include expert witness fees, court filing fees, deposition costs, and any other expenses directly related to the litigation of your case. This allows you to pursue a case without having to spend thousands of dollars in costs and expenses.

Our contingency fee policy ensures that you pay nothing unless we win your case.

How Much Will I Have to Participate in the Case?

While a medical malpractice claim will typically involve a large investment of time by the attorneys handling the case, they require relatively little investment on the part of the injured patient. You should expect to meet with us initially so that we can obtain the information necessary to evaluate your case and begin to pursue your claim.

Once we file suit, your role will be limited to a few court appearances, such as a deposition, a mediation conference and, of course, trial, if we are not able to settle your case. The exact amount of time you will need to devote depends on the case, but overall is far less than the time spent by your attorneys and is generally very manageable.
