A West Palm Beach malpractice attorney can provide tools, investigative resources, and experience to help patients and their families determine whether malpractice has occurred.
But do you really need a lawyer to make this assessment? Can you “self-diagnose” Florida malpractice and handle your situation on your own?
Identifying possible malpractice: opportunities and traps
Prior to the web, patients had few resources to help them question their diagnoses. Today, however, you can hop online and visit patient forums focused on conditions that range from tendonitis to ocular cancer. You can share stories and concerns with other patients and medical professionals. This can be a wonderful thing. You can find insights that you’d never have discovered on your own. For instance, you might discover an article that leads you to question certain lab test results. Or you might find negative reviews of your doctor or medical laboratory online. If you do suspect that “something strange is going on” with your diagnosis of your treatment, by all means, seek help and take action.
On the other hand, researching on the Internet can be misleading. You could self-diagnose incorrectly and thus either delay getting the right treatment or engage in a treatment that’s entirely unnecessary, perhaps even harmful. At the end of the day, always consult with a qualified physician. Your doctor should understand and listen to you and provide the skills and tools to help you make progress.
And just as you should never self-diagnose your medical conditions, so, too, you should you never self-diagnose malpractice. Fortunately, you don’t have to do this; a skilled Florida malpractice attorney can be a strong ally. The team at the Law Offices of Craig Goldernfarb, PA, can help you determine whether you have a case.
