What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional, such as a doctor, nurse, or hospital, deviates from the accepted standard of care, leading to patient harm. These cases can take many forms, including:

We pursue full compensation for victims of medical malpractice, including those hurt by:

  • Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis: When a medical condition is misdiagnosed or not diagnosed in a timely manner, it can lead to unnecessary suffering and complications.
  • Surgical Errors: Mistakes during surgery, such as operating on the wrong body part or leaving surgical instruments inside the patient, are examples of surgical malpractice.
  • Medication Errors: Administering the wrong medication, incorrect dosage, or failing to consider drug interactions can have severe consequences.
  • Birth Injuries: Errors during childbirth can result in birth injuries to both the mother and the baby, including cerebral palsy and Erb's palsy.
  • Anesthesia Errors: Errors related to anesthesia can lead to severe complications, including brain damage or death.
  • Hospital Negligence: Inadequate care, unsanitary conditions, or staffing issues can harm patients. 

What is the Statute of Limitations for a Medical Malpractice Claim in Michigan?

The statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases in Michigan typically allows two years from the date of the alleged malpractice or from when the injury was or should have been discovered. However, there are exceptions to this rule, such as cases involving minors or cases where the healthcare provider fraudulently concealed the malpractice.

It's crucial to consult with an experienced Kalamazoo medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible if you believe you have a valid claim. Gathering evidence and building a strong case takes time, and waiting too long could jeopardize your ability to seek justice.

What Damages Can Be Recovered in a Medical Malpractice Case?

Victims of medical malpractice may be entitled to various types of damages to compensate them for their losses. These damages can be both economic and non-economic and may include:

  • Medical Expenses: Compensation for all past and future medical bills related to the malpractice, including hospital stays, surgeries, medication, rehabilitation, and therapy.
  • Lost Income: You may be entitled to compensation for lost wages and future earning potential if the malpractice caused you to miss work or resulted in a reduced earning capacity
  • Pain and Suffering: Non-economic damages intended to compensate for the physical and emotional pain and suffering caused by the malpractice.
  • Loss of Consortium: If the malpractice has negatively affected your relationship with your spouse, you may be able to recover damages for loss of companionship and support.
  • Punitive Damages: In extreme negligence or intentional harm cases, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the healthcare provider and deter future misconduct.
  • Wrongful Death: If the malpractice results in a patient's death, surviving family members may pursue a wrongful death claim, seeking compensation for the emotional toll of their loved one's death, funeral expenses, and the loss of financial support!

At Willis Law, our Kalamazoo medical malpractice lawyers understand the physical, emotional, and financial toll medical negligence can take on individuals and their families.
