Helping You Recover From A Health Care Professional’s Negligence

People put their trust and faith in physicians, nurses, obstetricians and many other medical professionals, probably more than anyone else, believing that they will make the proper diagnosis in a timely manner and request the appropriate treatment, medication or surgical procedure.

What Causes Medical Malpractice?

Going to the doctor or the hospital can be a daunting experience in itself without the threat of medical malpractice causing patients to suffer even more after they sought care or treatment than they did beforehand. Common types of medical malpractice include:

It is an unfortunate reality that many medical facilities, including urgent care facilities and hospitals, are understaffed and require staff members, doctors and nurses to work long hours with few breaks. This can cause medical professionals to rush through examinations and surgical procedures, as well as skip protocol and make mistakes due to being fatigued.

Righting The Wrong Through Effective Legal Representation

A medical malpractice claim in Michigan may be filed for an individual who has suffered illness or injury as well as by the family members of a person who has died because of medical malpractice. Michigan's medical malpractice law states that the plaintiff has the burden of proving the defendant failed to provide the plaintiff the recognized standard of acceptable professional care and that this failure caused the plaintiff to suffer an injury.
