Ohio Medical Malpractice Warning Signs - What to Be on the Lookout For March 31, 2012.
Be on the lookout for these red flags at your hospital or doctor’s office, and protect yourself against medical malpractice in Ohio, wherever it may be lurking.
Consider switching doctors if you notice any the following:
- failure to answer questions – as a patient, you have the right to ask about any concerns you have about your diagnosis, condition, treatment, medication, and any options you have;
- condition worsens or fails to improve with treatment – medicine is not a precise science and sometimes treatments are ineffective, but if your treatment isn’t making any difference or making things worse, it might be time to seek out a second opinion; and
- requests are not honored – if you request a certain treatment and don’t receive it, or if your doctor has dismissed your opinions in any way, it’s time to get a new doctor.
If you suspect that you have been the victim of medical malpractice, reach out to an attorney from our Cleveland firm for a no-cost, no-obligation consultation and to receive an evaluation of your case.
To make the most out of your free consultation, bring copies of your medical records and write down any questions you have in advance so you can ensure that they are all answered.
