Call Us Right Away if You Suspect You Were Harmed by a Doctor
Medical malpractice is a significant problem that causes countless patients to suffer serious injuries and illnesses every year. Unfortunately, medical malpractice often goes unaddressed by victims and their families. That’s because they may not realize it happened or they may not think that they can win if they file claims.
If you suspect that you’re a victim of medical malpractice, it’s important to get help as soon as possible. This is important for two reasons. First, most medical malpractice lawsuits must be filed within two years of the date the injury or illness occurred. Second, evidence is crucial for building successful medical malpractice claims, and it can quickly disappear just weeks after patients have been harmed by their doctors.
In addition, waiting a long time to file a medical malpractice claim can give the hospital and their insurer plenty of time to mount their defense against the lawsuit—especially when they know that medical malpractice occurred. By acting quickly, you and your lawyer can have the upper hand when it’s time to negotiate a settlement.
