Medical malpractice refers to an injury to a patient which is the direct result of a medical professional’s violation of a patient’s standard of care as outlined by the law.
To be considered medical malpractice in the eyes of the law, your case must meet a variety of criteria including a violation of a professionally-recognized standard of care, an injury that was directly caused by negligence on the part of the medical professional, and significant damages sustained by the injured party.
Some examples of medical malpractice include failure to diagnose, unnecessary surgery, inadequate aftercare, incorrect medication, and failure to take an appropriate patient medical history.
Like many laws, medical malpractice cases have a statute of limitations which restrict the timeframe in which you can make a claim.
In Michigan, the statute of limitations on medical malpractice cases is two years from the time that the healthcare professional’s negligent act occurred. Alternatively, your claim should be filed within six months of the discovery of medical malpractice if the two-year limit has passed.
If you or a loved one has sustained an injury as a direct result of medical malpractice, you are entitled to seek compensation.

Kroll, our resident nurse attorney, walks with you every step of the way through your case from establishing a timeline of events, to navigating the bureaucratic procedures necessary to file a medical malpractice suit.
