4 Facts About Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is one branch of personal injury law. Unfortunately, these instances occur far too often. It’s believed that around 200,000 people die each year due to medical errors. However, getting the justice you deserve isn’t always easy. At Jordan Law Firm, we provide representation to people who’ve been hurt as a result of a person or facility’s negligence. Here are some facts to help you better understand malpractice.

  1. Malpractice occurs when a medical provider delivers care that’s considered to be below standard.
  2. You may have a personal injury claim related to this negligence if you suffer harm or injury as a result.
  3. Malpractice claims can be difficult to prove. A good personal injury attorney will thoroughly review your case and your medical records to make sure you have a valid case.
  4. Statutes of limitation vary from one state to another. If you’ve been injured by a medical professional, your first step should always be to call an attorney who practices in this area of the law. They can advise you about when to file a case.
