Best Medical Malpractice Attorney in Michigan

While we recognize the often tireless efforts of our nation’s medical professionals, we also recognize that things can go wrong and often, sadly, do. Whether due to fatigue after long hours, simple mistakes, or sheer negligence, medical malpractice is a very real issue throughout the U.S. In 2015 alone, Michigan averaged around 23.3 malpractice suits for every 100,000 people and those suits led to a total payout of $71.6 million.

But it is not just about the cost of actual suits filed. While actual lawsuits nationally amount to about $6.7 billion every year, it is estimated that the costs to society – due to things such as lost salary, disability payments, etc. – ranges from $17 billion to $29 billion.

If you have suffered injuries or harm as a result of medical negligence by doctors, nurses, or other health care professionals, then you may have grounds to file a medical malpractice claim. The law firm of Cochran, Kroll & Associates specialize in the area of medical malpractice and can represent you at any level, whether negotiating with insurance companies or helping to file a lawsuit on your behalf.

What is Medical Malpractice?

“Medical malpractice is the failure of a medical professional to follow the accepted standards of practice of his or her profession, resulting in harm to the patient. Usually, proof of failure to comply with accepted standards of medical practice requires the testimony of someone with expertise in the area of medical practice.”

Medical malpractice can take many different forms and can occur at any level in the chain of care, from drug manufacturing to a birth injury happening during labor and delivery. Some common examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Mistakes during surgery
  • Prescribing errors (wrong medications or wrong dosage)
  • Misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, or delayed diagnosis
  • Birth injuries (that can lead to conditions such as cerebral palsy)
  • Product liability (can include defective equipment or medication)
  • Infections due to failure in hygiene
  • Failure or delays in treating a diagnosed issue

The common thread in medical malpractice cases of any type is that the plaintiff – you – and their legal team have to be able to prove that the defendant failed in their duty of care towards you and that an equivalent professional would have acted more diligently.

When we represent victims of medical malpractice, we draw on our many years of experience to prove our case. We will identify medical errors made, use evidence from your medical records, and testimony from other health professionals to show that your medical care fell below acceptable standards.
