Medical Records Evaluation

Medical Records Evaluation

Whenever clients come for an evaluation of medical malpractice, one of the most important things that they may not be aware of is that their care provider can be altering their written chart as well as their computer chart while they are still in the hospital. So one of the things that needs to happen, is that your records are evaluated both internally as well as forensic document and computer experts. Through those evaluations, oftentimes we find that your care providers were not only negligent, but they were altering your records to try to hide it....

Almost any type of care you receive generates tremendous amounts of paperwork, often written in dense medical jargon and accompanied by codes for billing, referrals and prescriptions. The more complicated the treatment, the more paperwork it generates; deciphering the paper trail can seem utterly impossible, especially with the physical and emotional toll of hospitalization or other care.

When you or your loved one require medical care, just understanding the options and preparing for treatment can be daunting. Realizing when mistakes are made can be difficult, especially because medical mistakes have a high psychological and emotional toll on victims and their families. The experienced Kentucky and Ohio medical malpractice lawyers at Crandall & Pera Law have built a team uniquely suited to review and evaluate medical records for fraud.

When it comes to your health, your medical records are just as important as the medications you take and the treatment you receive. The documents that make up your record provide a log of the steps taken by your healthcare providers and an overall snapshot of important details about you. When those records are compromised, your life is on the line.

If you believe that your or your loved one was injured because a healthcare professional lied, you may be entitled to compensation for injuries, lost wages and other damages.
