It took my attorney 8 months to get my medical records from the doctor I am in the process of suing for malpractice. If he or his office altered them or left info out, is there a way to know? Would the medical expert who reviews them know? Do doctors actually alter records? Isn't that illegal? Thank You.
Negligence is a key concept of injury liability, and occurs when someone fails to take a reasonable amount of care to avoid injuring others.
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional's negligence causes injury to a patient. Incorrect actions and inaction can both be forms of negligence.
