How do you know if you have a case for medical malpractice?

If you or a loved one have been injured or died in what you consider to be a malpractice case, it is important to examine the case and look for the following elements:

The Standard of Care Has Been Violated

This means that you did not receive the acceptable medical treatment that you would have gotten if you were being treated by other reasonably prudent healthcare providers. If this is the case, negligence can be established, and you may consider a Michigan medical malpractice lawsuit.

Negligence Is Responsible for an Injury

It is up to you and your medical malpractice attorney from All Law, PLLC to prove that the injury you sustained would never have happened if negligence had not been present.

The Injury Produced Damages

Michigan medical malpractice cases may be lengthy and complicated, calling for the testimony of various experts and long depositions. Your medical malpractice attorneys will recommend how to proceed, depending on the amount of damages you are looking to recover for your medical care.

How long do you have to sue for medical malpractice in Michigan?

Under Michigan medical malpractice law, the statute of limitations is two years from the moment the injury or failure to act from your healthcare provider for medical malpractice cases. If the harm was discovered at a later date, the lawsuit must be filed within six months of this discovery or when it reasonably should have been discovered. Talk to your Michigan medical malpractice lawyer if you believe that your provider fraudulently concealed the malpractice to see if these dates can be extended.

What are some defenses to a medical malpractice case?

When a medical professional is sued for malpractice, there are several defenses they can use. They may argue that the standard of care was not breached or that the patient was the one that created the negligent act. The defense called “respectable minority” refers to a group of medical professionals that would support the way your provider acted, or they may also argue that you discovered your injury some time ago and did not act at that time.
