Marquette Medical Malpractice Lawyer

When we see a doctor, nurse, or any other type of medical professional, we expect them to follow procedure and treat us to the best of their ability.

Why Hire a Medical Malpractice Lawyer?

After sustaining harm due to a medical professional’s negligence, you cannot hire just any lawyer. In many cases, a medical professional’s career may be on the line when accusations of malpractice are brought against them, and they will do everything in their power to disprove your claim. Our firm is equipped to effectively fight for the compensation you deserve, no matter the hurdles thrown our way.

Examples of Medical Malpractice

Unfortunately, there are a wide variety of negligent actions that a medical professional can commit, though some of the most common examples of medical malpractice that our firm sees are as follows:

  • Surgical errors
  • Failing to diagnose cancer or other illnesses
  • Birth injuries
  • Prescribing the wrong medication, or the wrong dose of a medication
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Hospital staff errors
  • Wrongful death due to medical negligence

Proving a Medical Malpractice Claim

To win a medical malpractice claim, you and your Marquette medical malpractice lawyer must prove several things. They are as follows:

  • You were the medical professional’s patient, and the medical professional, therefore, owed you a duty of care.
  • The medical professional breached that duty of care by acting in a way that a competent and reasonable physician would not.
  • You were harmed as a direct result of the breach of care.
  • You sustained damages.

Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice Claims in Michigan

While the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims in Michigan is three years, this is not the case when it comes to medical malpractice claims. In Michigan, you must file your medical malpractice claim within two years of the date the incident occurred or within six months of the date you either discovered (or should have discovered) the act of negligence. If you fail to do so, you will most likely lose your right to sue.
