Medical Malpractice Law Firm in Kalamazoo
You trust the reputation and training of healthcare providers when you need advanced medical services. Unfortunately, negligence by these providers can result in dangerous negative outcomes, including permanent disability and chronic illness. Common types of medical malpractice include prescription drug errors, issues that arise during the labor and birth process, failure to diagnose or treat a health condition properly, and misdiagnosis.
Michigan residents have two years from the injury date or six months after the injury was diagnosed to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. However, these lawsuits require providing the defendant with official notice of intent at least 182 days before filing the suit.
Auto Accident Compensation
Car crashes that cause serious personal injury can be physically, emotionally, and financially devastating for the victim and his or her family members. Michigan residents injured in auto accidents in which another driver has clear fault can seek compensation with the help of a personal injury law firm.
Michigan is a no-fault state for auto accidents, which means that you file a claim for associated damages directly with your insurance company in most cases. However, you can sue the other driver if he or she caused the accident under certain circumstances, including if:
- The accident occurred outside of Michigan
- The at-fault driver does not have Michigan auto insurance
- You have experienced serious, permanent disfigurement, damage, or loss of bodily function
If your case qualifies by meeting one of these criteria, you have three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit.
Slip and Fall Accident Attorneys
Personal injury lawyers also help clients seek compensation for serious fall injuries that result from unsafe conditions. Common examples include slip-and-fall incidents that occur because of wet floors, poorly maintained stairs, icy parking lots, cluttered walkways, poor visibility, missing handrails, damaged floors, loose rugs, potholes, or landscaping hazards such as loose gravel.
If you experience debilitating injuries after this type of incident in public or on someone else’s property, a case evaluation with a personal injury attorney can help you determine whether you qualify for financial compensation. As with other types of personal injury cases, you have three years to file a lawsuit after this type of accident.
