The world of healthcare is fast-paced and stressful, and every medical scenario can’t play out perfectly. But what happens to you, the patient, when treatment is not delivered as it should be, and you end up paying the price? Medical malpractice can be both terrifying and confusing.
In a medical malpractice case, you suddenly have to confront a world of bureaucratic red tape as well as physical pain. That’s why we have a nurse attorney on staff to help walk you through every step of the journey to justice.
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider fails to provide the standard of care dictated by law or the medical community. Sometimes these instances are obvious, and other times you need the help of a nurse attorney to determine precisely what went wrong.
It’s important to file as soon as you can. The Michigan Statute of Limitations dictates that you must file within two years of the malpractice incident or within six months of becoming aware of the injury.
Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C is committed to fighting by your side and helping you cut through the red tape and confusion. Many legal offices bring extensive knowledge of court proceedings but fall short when it comes to medical expertise.
This leaves patients with the difficulty of trying to remember and reconstruct a medical timeline to determine the details of their case. It’s often an impossible task, as some patients could have been asleep or in pain when the malpractice incident occurred.
With over 100 cases of medical malpractice experience and extensive nursing background, Eileen Kroll knows the world of medical malpractice. As a nurse attorney, she can put her medical background to work for you. She will sift through medical records and help you reconstruct an accurate timeline of events to see justice done.
Due to the nature of the statute of limitations, it’s crucial that you do not delay. Contact us today for a free case evaluation so you can seek justice in Lansing, MI. Our toll-free line is open 24 hours a day at (866)-868-3779. We never charge a fee unless we win your case.
