A medical malpractice lawsuit typically involves negligent, reckless or intentional conduct of a healthcare professional which causes harm, injury or death to the patient. The wrongdoer in a medical malpractice lawsuit may include doctors, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, technicians, nursing homes, clinics, hospitals or other healthcare providers that directly or indirectly treated you.
Like personal injury claims, medical malpractice claims are complicated. It is often necessary to obtain medical records from multiple healthcare providers as soon as possible. If you file your claim too late after the injury occurs, your claim may be barred by the statute of limitations. On the other hand, if you file and settle your claim too early, you may not be compensated for all the injuries you suffered from the malpractice.
The medical malpractice attorneys at Schleifman Law can help you seek compensation from all possible sources, including individual healthcare practitioners, employers and insurers.
