Evaluating Your Westland Medical Malpractice Claim
A poor outcome or unsatisfactory result during a hospitalization or procedure does not necessarily mean that there was medical malpractice or negligence by the medical provider. Many procedures have inherent risks and many illnesses have poor outcomes even with the best medical attention. We perform a detailed analysis of your treatment to determine whether you have been the victim of medical malpractice. Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys will discuss your case with you, review your records, and advise you whether you have a legitimate claim for medical negligence.
Time Deadlines for Filing a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit
You should be aware that there are strict time limitations for filing medical malpractice suits in Michigan. In general, you must file your medical malpractice claim within two years of the injury or negligent medical treatment. There are some exceptions for cases involving minors, wrongful death cases, and other situations, but you need to discuss these with a lawyer as soon as possible. If you wait too long to contact a lawyer, your claim may be destroyed.
