What are the first steps to evaluate a medical malpractice case in Groton, Connecticut?


The first step in evaluating a medical malpractice case in Groton, Connecticut is the decision about what you believe the doctor or medical facility did that was negligent. Try to be as specific as possible to narrow down the inquiry. Always remember that a bad result is not, in and of itself, medical malpractice. You can always expand the analysis later. Once you decide upon the specific act of negligence that you will investigate, the next step is to gather all of the medical records that apply. After you have the medical records, you can then have your records evaluated by a doctor or qualified medical expert to evaluate the standard of care at issue, and determine what the doctor lived up to the standard of care.
