Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is when a medical professional makes a mistake that causes his or her patient serious injury or death. Legally, medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional fails to act with a “reasonable standard of care”.

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.

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.

Generally, a Michigan malpractice claim must be filed within 2 years of the date of the negligent conduct, or within 6 months from the date of discovery that negligence occurred. In Florida, plaintiffs generally have two years to bring suit after discovering the injury. In California, a claim must be brought within a year of discovering the negligent act, but no more than three years from the date of injury. 

Failure to file a malpractice claim within the legal timeframe (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.
