METRO DETROIT Medical Malpractice LAWYER
When a healthcare professional’s conduct falls below the appropriate standard of care and causes injury to a patient, the consequences can be catastrophic. Contact the Metro Detroit Injury Lawyers today if you believe you or your loved one have been injured as a result of a doctor or hospital’s negligence.
Medical malpractice actions are complicated and the time to file a lawsuit against a negligent healthcare provider is shorter than in other personal injury cases. In fact, Michigan requires that a medical malpractice plaintiff give the negligent healthcare provider timely notice prior to filing a lawsuit.
Medical malpractice claims also require that a qualified expert support the allegations of negligence before the case is even filed. Delaying contacting a competent medical malpractice attorney could result in a meritorious claim being barred or denied by the statute of limitations.
Some common types of medical malpractice claims include:
- Birth Injury
- Wrong-Site Surgery
- Cancer Misdiagnosis
- Failure to Obtain Informed Consent
- Radiology Errors
- Heart Attack Misdiagnosis
- Nursing Home Negligence
- Anesthesiology Mistakes
- Medication Errors
- Surgical Mistakes
- Sexual Misconduct
- Nursing Errors
- Patient Abuse
- Anticoagulation Errors
- Emergency Room Errors
- Dental Malpractice
A doctor or hospital’s negligence can have devastating effects on a patient and can result in permanent impairments. The patient may incur outrageously high medical bills, require future care, and be unable to get back to work. When you hold doctors and hospitals accountable for their mistakes, you’re not just seeking compensation for your own injuries, but also helping to make sure they are not repeated.
If you or your loved one has been injured in Michigan as a result of the negligence of a nurse, doctor, dentist, surgeon, radiologist, technician, nursing home, hospital or other health care provider, contact the Metro Detroit Injury Lawyers today for a free evaluation of your case.
