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 constitutes medical malpractice in Michigan?

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.

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.
