New Mexico Medical Malpractice Attorneys Curtis & Co.

Social media and medical malpractice

People who require medical treatment typically expect that the medical professionals who care for them will fulfill their professional obligations to the best of their ability. Sadly, some medical professionals are negligent or are unable to carry out their job duties properly, whether they lack training, are short on time, or simply do not care. Victims of medical malpractice may face a wide range of hardships and can be very stressed out and even angry. Sometimes, people turn to social media to vent their feelings, but we know how important it is for medical malpractice victims to watch what they share online if they plan on taking their case to the courtroom.

Regrettably, the information that you post on social media, whether it takes the form of a short post or a lengthy video, can be used against you in court. Some people who have suffered at the hands of a negligent medical professional have shared details about their condition or their experiences, only to have this information be used as evidence against them. Moving on from medical malpractice can be incredibly challenging from a physical, emotional, and financial perspective, so victims should never act in a way that could interfere with their ability to obtain the compensation they need.

Whether someone suffers from a medical condition that worsens due to negligence or an injury that never should have occurred, medical malpractice must be addressed right away. Our page on malpractice suits has more information related to medical professional negligence.
