There is a time limit to file a medical malpractice claim

Surgeons are people, in many ways superhuman people, but people, nonetheless. As a patient, you need to be able to trust your doctor as you are placing your life literally in their hands. So, when a surgeon makes a mistake, it is devastating and unsettling. This article will go over how long you have to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the doctor and hospital that made a mistake during your procedure.

Is there a new way to compensate victims of medical malpractice?

No-fault insurance, for the readers out there not from a no-fault car insurance state, means that neither party to an accident tries to allocate fault. So, if you are in a car accident you file a claim with your insurer and the other drivers file with their insurers. No one investigates or goes to court, it is all resolved quickly by the insurance companies. Over the next few years Georgia, Florida, Montana and Tennessee will debate the merits of applying a no-fault insurance system to medical malpractice cases.

Does your child need help?

If you believe that your child suffered an injury during birth, then contacting an attorney is probably the furthest thing from your mind. Don't take this approach. The right attorney and investigator can question your health care provider to determine if there was negligence during the birth of your child, which could have resulted in his or her injuries. This article will review how a law firm can get the answers you deserve and the money you need to care for your child.

Doctor errors can sometimes lead to more than medical problems

A mother, and lawyer, from Ohio filed a lawsuit against several doctors for taking away her children. She alleges that the doctors misdiagnosed her child with shaken baby syndrome which resulted in the State removing both children from her care and terminating her parental rights. This case illustrates the power that doctors have over their patients, specifically the potential consequences their decisions can have on more than just medical matters.
