Have you been injured or hurt as a result of a physician’s breach of duty?
You may have been hurt or injured following a recent medical or surgical procedure. Perhaps your surgeon was negligent or careless, resulting in physical and/or emotional distress.

Medical malpractice cases are very serious, and require hours of investigation and research in order to prove or disprove allegations.
As patients, we have a right to the best medical treatment available
Whenever we have to undergo an operation, we are trusting that our surgeon will perform it according to all of the required medical protocols and procedures. We expect that they will conduct themselves as though they are being scrutinized by the highest medical authorities in the land. We put our lives in the hands of surgeons when we sign our agreement for treatment, and go under anesthesia. We trust that they will honor all of the medical practice duties that are expected of them.

What is a breach of duty?
A breach of duty is essentially a form of medical malpractice. According to Wikipedia, a breach of duty has occurred if a defendant’s “…conduct fell short of the standard expected under the circumstances.” Read more here.
In other words, it is a form of negligence. Physicians and surgeons take a Hippocratic Oath, pledging to practice medicine honestly, before they begin their careers. They are required to take the utmost care when treating and operating on patients in all circumstances. They have a duty to perform surgeries according to the highest standards of medical excellence…anything less could constitute a breach of duty.
Medical malpractice cases require swift legal action
Dozens of laws have been passed nationwide to prevent trivial, petty, or egregious medical malpractice cases from being filed, which is why there are strict limits as to how long an individual has to file such a claim. The legal team at Injury Lawyer in Detroit is highly knowledgeable about the statutes of limitation pertaining to all medical malpractice cases in the state of Michigan. We will make sure you meet all of the requirements and important deadlines in order to pursue your case in a timely, legal fashion.
