If you or someone you know has suffered a personal injury due to any form of medical or professional malpractice, you should immediately seek the services of a professional malpractice attorney. A Milwaukee medical and professional malpractice lawyer can help you recover losses incurred due to minor and major medical malpractice events such as medication errors, surgical errors, hospital negligence, failures to diagnose and other sorts of common medical malpractice.
According to a 2000 report by the Institute of Medicine, anywhere between 44,000 and 98,000 people die every year due to preventable medical errors. Injuries incurred due to medical malpractice don’t just damage the health and finances of victims either — negligent medical care severely damages the trust that patients can put in their medical care providers for future care.
As a Milwaukee medical malpractice lawyer with extensive professional malpractice claims experience, Karl Gebhard of Gebhard Law Office has handled medical malpractice claims for injured patients throughout the Milwaukee area. He recognizes that while it is difficult to put price tags on nebulous concepts like quality of life and quality of care, he believes that doctors, nurses and other professional health care providers must be held accountable for the quality of the care that they provide, especially if their negligent care results in serious harm or wrongful death.
Gathering Evidence for Professional and Medical Malpractice Claims
If you are considering or planning a professional or medical malpractice lawsuit, it is vital that you obtain and save copies of important medical documentation that will support your claim. This includes:
- Medical records
- Discharge instructions from hospitals and other health care facilities
- Health insurance benefit statements
- Medical bills
- Images and imaging studies (such as X-rays, CT scans and MRIs)
- Pictures of injuries and scars
- Notes, diagrams and correspondence from doctors
- Any journals of your injuries and how they’re affecting your day-to-day life
