Medical malpractice is a serious and potentially life-altering event. Dealing with the aftermath of medical care gone wrong can be extremely stressful and painful for the patient. Healthcare professions are demanding and complex, and it can be baffling for the average citizen to understand the inner workings of the medical world.
As you struggle to get your life and health back together, you may also find yourself confused and overwhelmed while dealing with the extensive legal hassle. Perhaps you suspect medical malpractice but aren’t sure how to prove it or what to do in order to seek justice in Detroit. That’s exactly where Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C. can step in and help lift the burden from your shoulders.
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider violates the legal and medical standards for appropriate treatment.
If you have suffered due to medical malpractice, you have the right to seek compensation for the resulting physical and financial damages you have sustained.
According to the Michigan Statute of Limitations, you have two years after inappropriate treatment to file for a lawsuit and six months to file after you’ve become aware of the malpractice incident.
