Medical Malpractice Cases
In general, medical malpractice cases need to be filed within 2 years from the date that the negligent incident occurred due to a statute of limitations. In order to have a valid medical malpractice claim, you must be able to prove that a doctor or other medical professional failed to perform according to the standard of care set by the field. Through expert analysis and testimony from another medical professional, you can show that the actions that your doctor took, or failed to take, did not align with those of a competent doctor. If these actions were the direct or proximate cause for your injury, illness, or worsened medical condition, you have the right to hold your doctor accountable.

- Failure to treat

- Accidental amputation
- Cerebral palsy
