FAQs

IS IT POSSIBLE TO FILE A MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CLAIM IF A CONSENT FORM OR WAIVER HAS BEEN SIGNED?

Yes, it is still possible to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against a negligent health care professional even if you have signed a medical release form. It should be noted that patients are required to sign a release form or waiver before undergoing any medical procedure. However, signing this form does not give medical professionals the license to perform their duties below an acceptable standard.

FAQs

WHAT ARE THE FIRST STEPS THAT VICTIMS OF MEDICAL MALPRACTICE SHOULD TAKE?

If you suspect that you have become the victim of medical malpractice and are still under the care of that doctor, the first thing you should do is consider seeing another, more reputable medical professional. Next, contact a Lancaster medical malpractice attorney, serving the Victorville and Santa Clarita areas to discuss your case. California law places a limit on the amount of time that victims have to file medical malpractice claims, so it is in your best interest to act quickly the moment you suspect malpractice.

FAQs

FAQs

WHAT IS MEDICAL MALPRACTICE?
