Recently, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) commissioned a study with startling statistical revelations. The study found that 46% of all medical malpractice cases, nearly half, occurred in an outpatient setting where errors were made in the diagnosis of patients. Whereas, only a third (34%) of the claims resulted from surgical errors for inpatient incidents.   Regardless of the nature of a medical mistake, the ramifications can be devastating both physically and economically.  

If you received advice or treatment from a medical professional and ended up with a bad result, you may feel betrayed and neglected and it can be difficult to know where to turn for advice. If you believe that a medical professional made a mistake that caused harm to you or a loved one, you need the assistance of experienced attorneys to help you through the complicated process of handling a case for medical malpractice.

Medical malpractice is the legal term for negligence by a medical professional. To prevail on a case of medical malpractice, it is not enough to have a bad result or known complication from medical treatment; you are required to show that the doctor, nurse, therapist or other medical professional violated the professional “standard of care.” The Michigan Medical Malpractice laws are extremely complicated.  There are pre-suit notice requirements, expert requirements, caps on damages and other criteria inherent to the successful resolution of a case.
