Have you or a loved one sustained serious injuries after being treated by a doctor or other type of healthcare provider? In the State of Michigan, the law allows you to file a malpractice lawsuit against the physician or hospital responsible for your injuries. However, you only have a limited amount of time to file said lawsuit before your case may be denied.
At the Law Offices of Todd J. Stearn, our Oakland County medical malpractice lawyers have successfully helped dozens of clients resolve their medical malpractice cases. Regardless of whether you or a loved one sustained injuries caused by medical malpractice, we can help ensure you obtain the best possible results for your case.
We have helped clients pursue various types of medical malpractice cases, including:
Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
PROTECTING YOUR RIGHTS AS A PATIENT
As a patient, you have a multitude of medical rights that must be upheld by your provider, but one of the most important rights is the right to receive adequate and appropriate care. When a doctor or other healthcare provider fails to diagnose or treat you properly, you are not receiving adequate and appropriate care. If you sustained injuries from said negligence, you have the right to file a malpractice claim.
However, the filing requirements for a medical malpractice suit are incredibly rigorous and challenging to navigate without proper assistance. For example, you must have an affidavit of merit, which is when a medical professional proves you were the victim of medical malpractice. If you fail to meet any of the necessary requirements for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit, you could lose the right to file a lawsuit against said medical professional or hospital—no matter how severe your case may be.
GET TOP-QUALITY LEGAL REPRESENTATION
Studies have shown nearly 440,000 people die every year as a result of preventable medical errors. If you believe you sustained injuries due to medical malpractice, help ensure others do not suffer similar or more severe injuries by holding the healthcare professional responsible for their negligent actions.
