How You Can Better Protect Your Malpractice Claim

If you suffered a serious mistake at the hands of a medical professional, you may be considering a medical malpractice case. Taking the necessary steps and acting in a timely manner are critical for the success of your claim.

George S. Bellantoni, Attorney at Law, knows how serious the effects of a doctor’s negligence can be on you and your loved ones. His firm is dedicated to taking the necessary actions to reach the best outcome for your claim.

Having developed extensive experience practicing in court, Mr. Bellantoni has a reputation as a skilled litigator. This often allows him to reach favorable settlements outside of court, thereby resolving cases more efficiently. If a trial is in your best interests, however, he will invest the time needed to better position your case in court.

Gather All Medical Documents

To better protect your case, it is important to gather all documentation of your medical care as quickly as possible. Getting a copy of your medical records immediately following the alleged incident of medical malpractice will help to ensure that they are not altered in a way that can negatively affect your claim.

Speak With An Attorney

If you believe you experienced medical malpractice, it is important to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. Taking legal action sooner rather than later will often help place your claim in a stronger position. Additionally, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims in New York is two and a half years. Failing to act within that time period could leave you unable to recoup the financial compensation you deserve.

He will thoughtfully analyze your case and consult with medical specialists to determine whether filing a malpractice claim is appropriate for your situation.
