Medical Malpractice

Has a medical mistake damaged your health?

When you need medical treatment, you trust your doctor or hospital to improve your health. When you or a loved one live in an assisted living or a nursing home, you expect excellent care. But medical personnel sometimes make serious and deadly mistakes. Tragically, those errors can result in more surgery, more treatments, disability and even death.

Now a medical mistake has happened to you. You're upset. The bills are piling up. You want to make sure this never happens to you or anyone else again.

We understand. 

When you're a victim of medical malpractice it comes as a shock to you. An error, a careless oversight or professional negligence has hurt you or damaged or destroyed the life of a loved one. Now, because of the injury, you need a way to cushion its impact upon you and your family. You quickly discover it is not a level playing field.

Medical malpractice is one of the most difficult and challenging areas that personal injury lawyers encounter. Doctors, medical staff and facilities hire the best insurance defense lawyers they can find. It comes as a personal affront to them that they have been accused of malpractice. To protect your rights, you have to be equipped with experienced, knowledgeable and skilled attorneys who can fight for you. At Conybeare Law Office you will find these attorneys.

  • What do you need to do? It is important that you obtain a consultation with us very early after the malpractice has occurred. In Michigan, generally you have only two years from the date of the malpractice to file an appropriate claim. Because these cases are complex and often very involved, we need to hear what happened and decide whether or not your case has merit. There are procedural requirements in Michigan that also make it important for us to be involved very early in the process. We have to start with the filing of a Notice of Intent which must describe in detail the factual, medical and legal basis for your claim. After a set period of time we then, with our lawsuit, furnish an Affidavit of Merit signed by an appropriately qualified expert witness. Because of these requirements, expect your case to be a time intensive investigative process. We have to establish a violation of the standard of care and that the violation was the cause of your or your loved one's damages.
  • We know other areas of personal injury law and this matters. Our attorneys have valuable knowledge and experience in all areas of personal injury, social security disability and worker's compensation law. This experience helps us advise you not only on the matter for which you have consulted us but what other legal steps may be taken to cushion the impact of the injury.

Our attorneys have worked with expert medical witnesses and have earned their respect. We have faced the insurance adjusters, judges and opposing lawyers that will be involved with your case. So not only are we located close by to handle your needs, we also know what you're up against and how to best help you. It’s expertise that’s definitely to your advantage.
