When you go for major surgery, your emotions are probably running extremely high. You’re anxious, your thoughts are all a jumble, and you can’t stop thinking the worst. Nine times out of ten, the surgery will go smoothly and you will have no problems whatsoever. But what happens when something does go wrong? What do you do? And how can you prove it was medical malpractice?
That’s when you turn to Jersey City medical malpractice lawyer Anthony Carbone. Hospitals and doctors will be ready for your lawsuit and they don’t like to lose. They will find a way to show what happened to you wasn’t due to doctor error. And what’s worse is you might not have the documentation needed to battle them. And in order to show that what happened to you was because of negligence, you need your records. So how can you go about getting them? You should do the following:
- Call your medical provider to find out where you can request a copy of your records
- Make sure the request is in writing with the proper contact information
- Fill out a release form that will allow the provide to send you the records
- Make sure you specify whether you want the originals, copies or both
