Medical Malpractice

Legally, medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional fails to act with a “reasonable standard of care,” and causes injury to a patient. A recent study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association revealed that medical mistake is now the third-leading cause of death in the United States. If you have been injured by the negligence of a medical professional, you may have a claim for damages. 

Injury, disability, or death caused by the error of doctors, therapists, pharmacists, dentists, and other medical professionals, can be grounds for a Michigan medical malpractice case. However, over the last several decades, many state legislatures have passed laws limiting the amount a claimant can recover for injuries sustained as a result of medical error. However, you may still be entitled to significant damages if you have been severely injured. 

In Michigan, a patient has the right to file a lawsuit against any medical professional who may have committed malpractice. However, the filing requirements for a malpractice lawsuit are lengthy and complicated. This is why it is crucial to contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney as soon as feasibly possible. 

Failure to file a malpractice claim within the legal time-frame (statute of limitations) means that the victim loses all rights to file a lawsuit against the medical professional or hospital which negligently caused injury or death.

If you or a family member becomes the victim of medical malpractice, you need to protect your legal rights and contact an experienced lawyer immediately.
