        Question:

        What Mistakes Can I Avoid After a Medical Malpractice Case?

        Answer:

        A client recently asked, in the event that they suffered an injury from medical malpractice in Orlando, Florida, what they should avoid and what they should do or not do. It got us thinking of mistakes people tend to make in medical malpractice cases. Usually, especially with smaller doctors’ offices, one of the main mistakes that we see them make is they inform the physician and try to make a claim on their own. That’s a big mistake. We’ve seen additional records added to files. We’ve seen records removed from files. We’ve seen them prepare themselves if there’s a lawsuit coming. That’s one of the worst things you can do, is to give them a heads up as to what is coming, because of the risk of the evidence not being the same or not being there when you do decide to make a claim. That’s really the most important thing.

        The next thing is waiting too long. A lot of people say, “I feel worse now after my treatment, after my surgery, after my visit. I feel a lot worse but let me see what happens.” That’s a big mistake. You want to have that case evaluated as quickly as possible. Florida has a very strict time limit. It’s usually a two-year statute of limitations for you to bring a claim. There are some exceptions, however, and that is a very complicated area as well. The sooner you act, the sooner you consult with an attorney, the sooner your case is evaluated, the better, just because of the strict time limits that are available. If you don’t follow those time limits, you could lose your rights forever.

        It’s important that, if you feel that maybe there was a mistake made, you immediately get a consultation with a qualified attorney that specializes in medical malpractice. As attorneys, we must be able to protect your rights and we need the time to do so. For this or any other question, feel free to give us a call for a free consultation.

        “In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”– David and Jennifer Alvarez
