Your Right to Receive Medical Records

Houston v. GEO, et al.,¬†Florida Fourth District Court of Appeal – Just this week, the Fourth DCA agreed with a prison inmate who argued that his pro se medical malpractice complaint was wrongly dismissed without an evidentiary hearing for the inmate’s failure to provide a corroborating expert opinion, even though the inmate alleged that he was denied timely copies of his medical records. In Florida, medical malpractice cases generally are required to follow a strict pre-suit procedure. Part of that procedure includes obtaining copies of all relevant medical records and having those records reviewed by an expert. If you do not timely receive copies of medical records which are necessary to a proper investigation of your case, that can substantially effect how your case proceeds. An experienced medical malpractice attorney can evaluate the facts of your case and help you determine whether or not you should proceed with litigation.
