Southfield, Michigan (MI) Medical Malpractice

While most doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals provide quality medical care for their patients, unfortunately, sometimes negligent behavior can lead to mistakes — mistakes with devastating outcomes.

All healthcare providers are bound by a professional duty of care. If they violate this duty of care and their actions result in injuries or death, the injured parties can file a lawsuit seeking financial compensation.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury because of a doctor or other medical professional’s negligence, the experienced medical malpractice attorneys at Morgan & Morgan’s Southfield office can help you determine your best course of action.

The physical and emotional costs of medical malpractice are great, and the financial costs can be tremendous. No amount of money can take your pain away, but  compensation can ease your financial burden and help you obtain the care you need and deserve.

In most cases, Michigan law requires you to file a medical malpractice claim within two years of the injury, so if you believe you might be the victim of medical malpractice, there is no time to waste. Fill out this online form to request a free case evaluation.

What is Medical Malpractice?

Doctors and medical professionals are required to adhere to certain professional standards to ensure quality patient care. If a healthcare professional violates these standards and that violation causes an injury or illness, medical malpractice may have occurred.

For example: if a cardiologist fails to identify a dangerous heart condition during an examination and the patient later has a cardiac event that could have been prevented with proper treatment, the patient may be able to sue the doctor for damages.

How Morgan & Morgan Attorneys Can Help You

They can investigate your case. Morgan & Morgan’s experienced medical malpractice lawyers can gather evidence and review medical records to determine if, based upon the care you received, you may have been the victim of medical malpractice.

They can consult with medical experts. Our attorneys work closely with leading medical professionals in Michigan and all over the country. The outcome of medical malpractice cases often hinges on expert witness testimony. When a highly respected medical expert testifies on your behalf, that testimony can be extremely powerful. 

They can negotiate a settlement. The insurance company of the medical professional or hospital may offer you a financial settlement to avoid going to trial. If this happens, your attorney can present evidence to the insurance company and negotiate to make sure you get the full amount of compensation you deserve. 

They can take your case to trial. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, your Morgan & Morgan attorney will take your case to trial. As the nation’s largest law firm, we have the resources necessary to take your case to court. And when we go to court, we play to win.
