What documents do you need for a medical malpractice case?

Having the right information and documentation on hand is very important for a medical malpractice case, and it's wise to take some time to gather these documents as your court date draws closer. Some important documents to consider include:

1. Medical records. These are considered much more solid proof than any claims made by either side. If you believe you were given the wrong medication, for example, it may be more convincing to show where this happened in the records than simply to state your version of events.

2. Documents regarding prescription medication. Not only do you need to be able to show what medications you were given, but you want to use these documents to show how much was administered, when it was given out, and the like. This is especially important for cases revolving around improper medications or improper dosages.

3. Insurance information. Your insurance company may have covered some of the care, and these records can be helpful in showing how you were covered, what amounts were paid, what you paid out of pocket, when payments were made, and the like.

4. Financial evidence. Make sure you get paperwork backing up any claims of financial loss. For instance, if you're suing for extra money you had to pay, get the invoices and bills from the hospital. If you're suing over lost wages, gather documents—like bank statements or earning statements from your employer—to show what you were paid and what you lost.

Having all of the right information on your side can make your case much stronger, making you more likely to get the outcome you seek in Baltimore.
