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. Everyone wants to believe that their health care provider will always make the right decision at the right moment, but that’s not always the case. Patients throughout Michigan suffer serious illness, injury, disfigurement and even death because of mistakes made by those they trusted with their health.

You feel forced to cope with the steep expenses of care, treatment, surgery, rehabilitation and many other costs all by yourself. You are not alone. With over 100 years of combined experience holding negligent parties liable, you can trust us to help right the wrongs you’ve suffered.

What Causes Medical Malpractice?

Going to the doctor or the hospital can be a daunting experience in itself. Medical errors complicate an already tenuous situation, further damaging a patient’s health.

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 because they are 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 requires victims to prove that the at-fault party failed to meet a recognized standard of acceptable professional care and that this failure led to injuries.
