Over 98,000 people are killed each year due to medical mistakes. If you or someone you love has been hurt or killed as a result of medical negligence a medical malpractice lawyer can help you and your family recoup the compensation that you deserve.
While some medical malpractice cases occur in hospitals and emergency rooms, other medical mistakes occur in doctors offices and involve a failure to diagnose a condition that if it had been properly diagnosed, would have allowed for a successful outcome. Medical Malpractice laws vary from state to state. All states have a “statute of limitations” which is the time period in which a lawsuit can be filed. If you wait too long, your medical malpractice lawsuit can be barred by the applicable statute of limitations.
