When a person suspects a doctor or hospital error caused them harm, they should contact an attorney to review the medical records. In this video, attorney Kathy McArthur explains how her law firm begins an investigation into possible medical malpractice.
Where there are huge volumes of medical records, and it cost several thousand dollars just to get the records to be reviewed, sometimes we ask clients to help pay for that. Most of the time, there are not so many records that we can’t just get them. And I do have the very fortunate access to my husband, who is a Harvard and Johns Hopkins trained physician in general surgery and orthopedic surgery. He’s got the top training in the world and as a doctor’s doctor, he’s an expert in diagnosis and he’s an expert in what he does in the medical field. Which makes him a great expert for me, not to be a testifying expert or to sign an affidavit, but to review these medical records and tell us what happened. Or if it’s something like OB GYN or a problem with a baby, that is something out of this field, sometimes we have to go to somebody else. But typically, where other firms have to charge a couple of thousand dollars to get an opinion from an expert, we don’t have to do that because I have my husband, who is the best expert you’d want to go ever ask: Did malpractice occur? So, typically it doesn’t cost anything, we don’t charge any legal fees at all for the review. And to tell someone whether they have a case at the McArthur law firm, our job is to fight for you to make sure you get justice and reasonable compensation for your injuries.
