Michigan Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Michigan Malpractice Lawyer

The plaintiff in a medical malpractice case is the party who suffered damages as a result of the intentional, careless, or negligent acts of a doctor, hospital, or other medical professional. The latter is the defendant in a medical malpractice case.  The area of medical malpractice law is extremely complex and costly. Mistakes made during surgery, anesthesia or any other medical procedure may warrant medical malpractice lawsuits. A health care professional's failure to properly diagnose and treat a patient's illness may also be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Emergency rooms, obstetrics and gynecology practices and surgeons are most often the defendants in medical malpractice lawsuits. Medical malpractice lawsuits are subject to different laws and regulations than typical personal injury claims such as auto accidents. There are very strict statutes of limitation that regulate the time in which medical malpractice lawsuits can be filed. A qualified and skilled medical malpractice attorney has detailed knowledge of the laws and knows how to protect your rights while help you discover your options in medical malpractice lawsuits. An experienced Michigan malpractice lawyer can help build a strong case that will increase the likelihood that you will be justly compensated for your injuries.
