Filing a Michigan Medical Malpractice Lawsuit For Hospital Error
When a doctor or nurse makes a mistake in their medical care of a patient, the hospital may held liable for injuries caused by the error. If a patient dies due to hospital error, the family members of the deceased victim may have means for a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit.
A poor outcome or unsatisfactory result during a hospitalization or procedure does not necessarily mean that there was medical malpractice or hospital error by the medical provider. Many procedures have inherent risks and many illnesses have poor outcomes even with the best medical attention. However, one should be aware that errors do take place and if you suspect that your injury or death of your loved one was caused by a medical providers negligent act, that very well may be true. In fact, one of the number one reasons why a medical malpractice victim receives nothing is because the patient or their family members did not know that they were a victim. When was the last time you heard of a doctor, surgeon or hospital calling to apology for their malpractice that caused injury or death of a loved one?
