Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Michigan

Helping You Seek Answers & the Fair Compensation You Are Owed

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.

If you or your loved one suffered injuries or had a condition worsen as a result of medical negligence, contact Grewal Law PLLC. With more than a century of collective experience, our medical malpractice lawyers in Michigan can help you clearly understand your legal options and fight to protect your rights. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your losses; if so, our team can help you work to recover the maximum compensation you are owed.

Call our office at (888) 211-5798 to schedule a complimentary case evaluation today. We serve clients throughout Michigan.

Common Examples of Medical Malpractice

There are many different examples of medical malpractice. Some of the most common include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Substandard treatment
  • Failure to treat
  • Delayed treatment
  • Failure to follow up
  • Surgical errors
  • Birth injuries
  • Wrongful death
  • Emergency room errors
  • Anesthesia mistakes
  • Nursing home injuries
  • Medication/pharmaceutical errors
  • Hospital and HMO malpractice

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. Our firm handles opioid litigation, amongst other types of medical malpractice cases.

What to Do If You Are the Victim of Medical Negligence

If you believe you or your loved one was the victim of medical malpractice, it is important that you follow certain steps to better your chances of recovering the compensation you are owed:

  • First, make sure you receive proper medical attention for any injuries you have sustained or if a preexisting condition has worsened. If your loved one suffered harm as a result of medical negligence, make sure he or she receives the care he/she needs.
  • Next, talk to a medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible. As time passes, evidence is lost and proving your claim can become more difficult. Additionally, you only have two years to bring a claim for medical malpractice in Michigan.
  • Lastly, make sure you keep all documentation, medical records, and other information related to your case—even if it doesn’t seem relevant at the moment. Don’t trust evidence to memory; write down everything that occurred leading up to and following the incident.

You should also avoid speaking to any representatives from the hospital or facility where the alleged malpractice took place, and do not speak to adjusters from the liable party’s insurance company. Often, these companies will do everything they can to devalue or deny your claim, so it is in your best interests to speak to a lawyer before talking to anyone else.

Can a Hospital Be Held Liable for Negligence?

In short, yes. If the employees of a hospital are negligent, the hospital can be held liable. Hospitals and other medical facilities are responsible for ensuring that their employees uphold the standard of care. 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.
