We rely upon health care providers to resolve our physical ailments and provide counsel. However, some patients may incur severe physical injuries or even death due to a provider’s or facility’s actions. In some cases, you may be able to file a claim if a nurse, doctor, pharmacist or other professional harms your physical health. However, an unsatisfactory procedure may not be grounds for a medical malpractice suit. Lee & Lee, PS, can carefully evaluate your claim and explain whether it is worth pursuing.
If you believe that you are the victim of medical malpractice, call our Seattle office at 206-390-5264 to discuss your case with our skilled legal team. We have the resources necessary to thoroughly evaluate and pursue a complicated medical malpractice suit.
What Is Necessary To Pursue A Claim?
In order to file a medical malpractice claim, you must be able to demonstrate that your medical care provider deviated from established best medical practices and that their deviation caused your injury. It can be very difficult to prove fault in a medical malpractice case. You need the counsel of an experienced legal team to carefully evaluate the facts of your case and meticulously investigate the nature of the medical procedure that caused harm.
Additionally, you must file your claim before Washington’s statute of limitations expires. For most cases, you have three years from the date of your initial accident to pursue compensation. However, you should discuss this with your attorney, as deadlines may vary based on the nature of your case.
