Medical malpractice is a form of personal injury that occurs when a medical professional causes harm to a patient through negligence or a failure to meet the patient’s standard of care. Every year, thousands of people in Michigan and throughout the United States suffer life-changing injuries due to negligent and incompetently performed medical treatments.

While it is possible to manage aspects of your medical malpractice case alone, doing so can risk your case. Many people who experience personal injuries make the mistake of believing they can handle their cases alone. While it is technically possible to file and win a medical malpractice lawsuit without an attorney, doing so is incredibly difficult. The average person with no formal legal training would encounter several obstacles in the court’s procedural requirements. They could overlook crucial details of their cases that jeopardize their ability to recover compensation. Additionally, a plaintiff who chooses self-representation would need to meet these risks while managing the aftermath of their injury.

You can recover with the reassurance of knowing your case is in capable hands and more likely to succeed. A good lawyer will not only increase your chance of winning your case but also of maximizing your compensation as much as Michigan law allows. Our firm understands the complexities of such cases; you can trust your personal injury case to us.
The term “medical malpractice” is relatively broad and covers a wide range of different cases. The determining factor as to whether a personal injury qualifies as medical malpractice is the defendant’s status as a medical professional. Doctors, nurses, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and even mental health professionals can face medical malpractice claims if they harm the patients in their care.
