Let Us Help You Get Justice!

According to certain studies, medical negligence is the third-leading cause of death in the United States, following heart disease and cancer. This translates to about 440,000 patients who are injured or somehow harmed as a result of medical malpractice every year. While this number may seem shockingly high, it is important to remember that not all acts of medical malpractice are malicious. Mistakes, carelessness, and other accidents caused by doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals can all be considered medical malpractice.

What is Medical Malpractice?

In all fields and professions, there is a certain degree of acceptable error – and no patient should expect that positive health care outcomes are guaranteed. However, when doctors and medical professionals fail to meet the standard of care for their background and the situation at hand, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against them and/or the healthcare provider.

To prove medical malpractice, you will need to show the following:

  • Duty: Your doctor or provider had a “duty of care” established through a patient relationship with you.
  • Violation: Your doctor or provider deviated from the standard of care required of them.
  • Damages: You suffered significant physical, emotional, and financial losses as a result of that violation of duty.
  • Direct cause: Your doctor or provider’s violation was the direct cause of your damages.

Our skilled medical malpractice attorneys in Michigan are very familiar with the ins and outs of medical malpractice claims and know what to look for in order to prove that your physican was negligence. Let us evaluate your case for free by calling (888) 211-5798 to schedule a consultation.

Common Examples of Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice can take many forms, some of which are harder to identify than others. Here are some of the most common types of medical malpractice:

  • Delayed diagnosis/misdiagnosis - Whether your doctor failed to diagnose your illness or misdiagnosed your condition as something else, the consequences can be dire. Potentially fatal illnesses, like cancer, need to be discovered early for the best possible outcome. A misdiagnosis can cost the patient weeks or months of necessary treatment.
  • Surgical errors - Operating on the wrong site, leaving a surgical implement inside the body, or failing to perform the operation correctly are all common examples of surgical errors.
  • Birth injuries - A doctor's failure to provide adequate care during labor and delivery can result in serious, sometimes life-long harm to a newborn, including cerebral palsy, paralysis, and brain damage.
  • Emergency room errors - The intensity of the ER can lead to a number of medical mistakes, particularly in the area of misdiagnosis. Many patients are sent home after being diagnosed with a less serious ailment, when they should be hospitalized for a serious condition. Sometimes a patient may also have to wait too long for treatment, resulting in irreparable harm.
  • Anesthesia mistakes - Anesthesia is a vital element of most surgical procedures, however, a patient receiving the wrong dosage or not being monitored properly during surgery can suffer serious harm.
  • Medication/pharmaceutical errors - A medication error can occur when a doctor prescribes the wrong drug or the wrong dosage of the right drug. It can also happen when a nurse or pharmacist makes a mistake in the dosage or type of medication. Additionally, with the rise of the opioid addiction crisis in the United States, many opioid manufacturers, pharmacists, doctors, and others are being held under stricter legal scrutiny.

Regardless of if you are filing a medical malpractice claim with the help of a lawyer or on your own, you must adhere to the following elements:

  • Notice of Intent - Every medical malpractice lawsuit in Michigan begins with the filing of a Notice of Intent to File Suit (NOI). The NOI must be submitted in writing and served to all potential defendants at least 182 days before filing the actual lawsuit. When the NOI is filed, it tolls (delays) the statute of limitations by 182 days.
  • Affidavit of Merit - Michigan law mandates that any medical malpractice case includes an affidavit of merit by a qualified healthcare professional. This must be someone with the same board certifications and specialization as the defendant, ruling out general practitioners from providing expert testimony in cases involving oncologists or other specialists.
  • Filing of Lawsuit & Discovery - After the 182-day NOI period is completed, the medical malpractice lawsuit can be filed, which includes a discovery period. During discovery, both sides will conduct depositions, interviews, and request necessary documents related to the case, such as medical records.
  • Negotiation & Settlement - When the period of discovery is over, the option is settling the case outside of court is usually explored. Both parties generally benefit from a settlement, as it avoids costly legal fees and other expenses. Negotiations for a settlement can take a couple of days to several weeks as both parties go back and forth with different offers.
  • Trial - If a settlement cannot be reached outside of court, then the case will proceed to trial. This may take 2-3 years depending on the availability of the court in your county of residence. During the trial, both sides will present evidence that supports their claims to a jury that then makes the final verdict and determine how much compensation will be awarded to the plaintiff.

There are many complicated elements to a medical malpractice lawsuit in Michigan.

Medical Malpractice FAQs

  • Q:Are There Limits to Compensation for Medical Malpractice Cases?

    A:In the state of Michigan, there are no limits to standard compensatory damages in medical malpractice cases. However, there are “caps” on non-economic damages like pain and suffering, typically no more than $440,000 per case. There are exceptions for those who suffer permanent paralysis due to traumatic brain injury (TBI) or spinal cord injury, with the caps for pain and suffering set at $790,000 for these injuries. Unlike in some other states, there is also no option for punitive damages in Michigan.

  • Q:Can a hospital be held liable for medical negligence?

    A:In short, yes. While Michigan law holds that you can only sue a hospital for medical negligence when an employee was negligent, the definition of “employment” can vary depending on context. For example, if the surgeon who caused a medical error has an ongoing contractual relationship with the hospital, it could be argued that the hospital did not take appropriate precautions to protect your safety. After all, hospitals and other medical facilities are responsible for ensuring that their employees uphold the standard of care – and failure to do this can result in serious consequences for patients. Whether a hospital was negligent in its hiring of a new doctor (by failing to conduct a background check, for instance) or failed to properly train its employees, our firm can help you take legal action.

  • Q:What is the statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases in Michigan?

    A:The civil statute of limitations – or time allowed to file a lawsuit – varies from state to state, and it can also vary depending on the nature of the case in question. If your medical malpractice case is related to a birth injury, then the family must sue within 2 years of the injury date or before the child’s 10th birthday if it relates to a developmental disability. For other medical malpractice cases, you have 2 years to take legal action, or within 6 months of discovery if it was impossible to tell within the 2 years following the incident. This is common with cases involving long-term disorders and conditions such as cancer.
