Many Michigan residents may not be aware of the specifics involved in medical malpractice cases. Though some may have a general sense of what medical malpractice may entail, often the specific requirements of what makes a valid case may prove confusing. Thankfully, attorneys are available to help victims make sense of these specifics and choose whether or not to pursue such a case.
To determine the validity of medical malpractice claims in the United States, there are generally four legal requirements. First, the doctor must have a legal duty to administer care to the patient. In some cases, such as when a doctor just happens to be near someone experiencing a health issue, a doctor does not have such legal duty.
