Many of these injuries are very serious, often requiring extensive medical treatment and the need for additional surgeries. When a medical error causes death, it can give rise to a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit. In Michigan, a person injured due to a medical malpractice must generally file a lawsuit within two years of the date of the negligent act under the statute of limitations. If the negligent act is discovered after the two year period, you may have an additional six month to file your lawsuit under the “discovery rule”.
