What to Tell a Patient if the Problem is the Doctor’s Fault

shutterstock_182066816If you ever hear from a doctor that a continuing problem that you have as a result of some kind of treatment you’ve received from a doctor is “your fault”, you might have a problem. It’s very important that if you have a continuing problem as a result of something a doctor did or didn’t do and you’re not sure why you have that continuing problem but the doctor is telling you it’s your fault that you have that continuing problem, that you come in and speak with me. The first thing I’ll do is get all your medical records and we’ll be able to go through the medical records to determine exactly what happened and if necessary, the next step again would be to get an expert to review those records and if we determine that after speaking with the expert that this, in fact, was not your fault but the doctor’s fault, then we can proceed to bring an action against the doctor.
