How can I find out if the doctor that caused my injury has been sued for medical malpractice in West Virginia or elsewhere?
One resource that is available for residents of West Virginia is the West Virginia Board of Medicine Licensee Search. This allows you to search for a doctor under their name, company name, license number, license type, specialty and work location.
You should also know that any case involving medical malpractice, whether the doctor is found liable or not, is reported to the state's medical board. However, it can also be a challenge to retrieve this information as it is held by a department that is usually burdened by a lot of work.
You can also try contacting the hospital the doctor works for and ask to speak to the records department of the medical board that oversees them. If you tell them why you are looking for this information, they may try to steer you in another direction. Don't share your reasons for inquiring until you reach the appropriate person.
You may find it nearly impossible to get the information you need, which may lead you to consult with a Bridgeport medical malpractice law firm. It won't take an attorney very long to find the information you are looking for, as they specialize in this area of law.
When you have been injured as a result of medical malpractice in West Virginia, an attorney can explain what options are available to you and how you can protect your rights.
