Your physicians and other health care professionals owe you a great responsibility when providing you with medical care. You need to be able to trust your doctors to provide competent medical treatment while following the standards and safety practices of the medical field. A medical malpractice claim arises when healthcare professionals breach those standards and you are harmed as a result.
If you or a loved one have suffered a personal injury as a result of substandard medical treatment, a medical malpractice attorney can help you recover the benefits to which you are entitled.
STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS
Generally, Minnesota requires medical malpractice claims not resulting in death to be brought within four years from the date of the triggering incident. If your malpractice claim resulted in the death of a loved one, the time in which to bring your claim may be even less. Therefore, if you suspect that you or a loved one suffered an injury from substandard medical care, it is imperative that you consult an attorney as soon as possible. Not only will this protect your right to bring a claim but it allows your attorney to preserve evidence and ensures your best possible chance of obtaining the benefits you deserve.
EXPERT WITNESS REQUIREMENT
Any professional malpractice claim brought against a dentist, physician, or other medical professional must be supported through a retained expert. Medical malpractice cases deal with complex subject matters. Therefore, to bring a claim alleging professional malpractice, you must have an expert medical professional to support your theory of damages. Who you choose to be your expert witness can have a major impact on your case. Tentinger Law Firm can guide you through this process and find a qualified expert doctor or healthcare professional that will go to battle on your behalf.
