When you are looking for a new doctor for you or a loved one it is important to choose someone you trust and that is experienced. In addition to collecting recommendations from friends and family, it is also a good idea to see if the doctor you are considering to treat you has been sued for medical malpractice.
To find out if your doctor has been involved in any malpractice lawsuits you can:
- call the county clerk’s office in the location where the physician practices;
- call the state licensing medical board;
- call the state insurance department; and
- visit websites like www.docboard.org and search for your doctor.
It is not uncommon for a doctor who has been in practice a long time to have been sued before, but if you see more than one case it may be a sign that you should move on and look for a different healthcare provider.
If after being treated by a doctor, you believe you were the victim of medical malpractice you should seek legal counsel to help hold the appropriate party responsible for your injuries. You could have limited time to file a claim so do not wait to find out what you options are.
