Yes.  Reviewing your medical records will be essential for any attorney to fully understand whether you may or may not have a meritorious medical malpractice case. It is always helpful to have obtained your medical records in advance of speaking with an attorney by contacting your medical provider directly or speaking with the health care facility’s medical records department. If you have not obtained your records prior to speaking with or meeting with a medical malpractice attorney, an attorney can always obtain these records or assist you in doing so.
