How do I know if I have been the victim of medical malpractice?

You may be suspicious based on how the doctors, nurses or hospital administrators are acting, or another doctor may have told you something went wrong, but the truth is, many people don't know - the hospital, HMO or doctor's group is not up front with them about what happened.

And it is difficult to say whether you have a medical malpractice case without having your situation investigated - whether it involves a birth injury to a baby, hospital malpractice, HMO negligence or wrongful death.  And if you believe you have suffered due to the negligence of your physician, surgeon, or any other healthcare professional, you should take steps to have the matter investigated as soon as possible. The only way to get answers for you and your family is to get as much information as you can - and to get more information about your case or talk specifically about your situation, just call us at (202) 393-3320.
