ARE YOU A VICTIM OF MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE?
If the negligence of your healthcare provider has resulted in an injury, you should file for medical malpractice as soon as you become aware of your injuries. A competent medical malpractice attorney will be able to review your case and devise the best strategy for you.
There are some key differences between filing a medical malpractice case and other liability cases.
Statute of Limitations
You have 4 years from when the malpractice occurred to file your case, unless you can prove that your medical provider fraudulently concealed medical negligence so you could not find out. In this case the statute of limitations is 2 years from when the injury was discovered or 7 years from when the malpractice occurred.
Backing your Claim and Notice of Intent
In order to file a medical malpractice case, you will need to serve a notice of intent to sue to the healthcare provider that includes an affidavit of merit from a doctor or other medical professional confirming you have a valid malpractice claim.
At this point you may either settle with the company or go to court, depending on the details of your claim and other factors. Our attorneys can guide you through
the settlement process as well as defend your claim in court.
