What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice refers to when a medical professional provides substandard care to a patient and harm results from that poor care. To win a case, you must prove that the:

  • Medical treatment was below the acceptable standard of care.
  • Patient was injured or died.
  • Medical error was the cause of the patient’s injury or death.
  • Harmed patient suffered physical and emotional damages.

There are many occasions where a medical mistake was made but the patient did not suffer serious harm. In other cases, the patient would have suffered the same result even if the medical mistake did not happen. Our experienced Lansing medical malpractice lawyers will review your records and determine if you have the right to pursue a case for money compensation.

Can I File a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?

You can file a medical malpractice lawsuit if you were harmed due to a medical mistake. However, a poor medical outcome or unsatisfactory result during a hospitalization or medical procedure does not necessarily mean that there was negligence by the doctor or hospital.

Many medical procedures have inherent risks, and many illnesses have poor outcomes even with the best medical attention. We will perform a detailed analysis of your treatment to determine whether you or someone you know has been the victim of malpractice or negligent care.

How much are Medical Malpractice Settlements?

There is no formula to determine a medical malpractice settlement. Every case is unique and the compensation for the injured patient is determined based on the specific facts of his or case.

The amount of a settlement considers many factors. These include the type of physical harm to the patient, the psychological damage and mental anguish, the amount of past and future medical bills, and the loss of wages or future earning capacity.

Our attorneys will work tirelessly to get you the maximum possible settlement for your case.
