Moore Law host and local TV journalist Deb Haas and attorney co-host Don Moore welcomed Covington, Kentucky-based medical malpractice lawyer Jennifer L. Lawrence to take viewer questions regarding “Health Care Negligence.” Jennifer pointed out a few of the things that people can have ready when they are considering filing a medical malpractice lawsuit. “They need to have their medical records, they need to have their medical bills or their EOBs [explanations of benefits]—those statements the insurance company send out,” Jennifer said. “Any information—if they kept a diary of the events that occurred, that’s always helpful. So as much as information that they have when they come initially, it helps process the case and get the case analyzed by physicians to see if they do have a case.”
“Details, details, details,” Don said, concurring with Jennifer. “Just exactly what Jennifer said and the diary, any details—who, what, where, when, the date, the time, who said what—the more you write down, the easier it’s going to be for a lawyer to evaluate it.”
There was a wide variety of areas addressed by the questions from Moore Law viewers, including Kim in Indiana asking about the statute of limitations for a misdiagnosis, Jacqueline in Grant County discussing complications that both she and her grandson had after being treated for broken bones, Sean in Amelia talking about five follow-ups to an initial hernia surgery and Cynthia in Cincinnati asking whether she should get a second opinion for a costly procedure.
