Proof of Medical Malpractice
It is important to know that you must be able to prove three criteria in order to file a medical malpractice claim. You must:
- Prove your doctor failed to provide the standard of care and she or he made a mistake a reasonable doctor would not have.
- Show that your injury is a result of your doctor's negligence or wrongdoing.
- Show the damages suffered from the mistake.
Additionally, all cases are subject to a statute of limitations. In Michigan, the time to file a medical malpractice lawsuit is usually two years from the date of the injury, though this time limit can vary depending on the specific circumstances of your case.
