When Should I Contact an Attorney if I Suspect Malpractice?

You should contact an attorney as soon as you suspect that you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice. The earlier that you contact an attorney, the earlier he can begin the process of researching the appropriate medical standards and obtaining relevant medical records.

It may not be possible to determine if a viable case exists until after you have completed your medical treatment, but by contacting an attorney early in the process, you establish a relationship with a lawyer who can help you navigate the process and offer advice and guidance. There is no down side to contact an attorney too early.
