Beware of the Strict Guidelines in Medical Malpractice Cases

Alan Morton
Advocate for Justice/Trial Lawyer

http://www.MortonLawyers.com Whether you have been a victim of an anesthesia error, surgical error, misdiagnosis, or other medical mistake, you have the right to hold the negligent party and the hospital accountable for your damages. However, there are strict time limitations and laws in place that victims of medical malpractice need to be aware of.

After suffering as a result of a doctor error, nurse mistake, or error made by any other medical professional, it is critical to your case outcome that you take the proper steps in a timely manner. In Idaho, claims against physicians and hospitals require you to file a petition for a pre-litigation screening panel with the Idaho Board of Medicine. However, it’s not enough to simply file this petition.  This petition must be filed prior to the expiration of the statute of limitations and prior to filing a lawsuit. Unfortunately, failure to take the proper and timely steps can result in a dismissal of your medical malpractice lawsuit.

To make sure your interests are protected and that you don’t miss the window of opportunity to seek damages for the harm you incurred, you should contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney at the Morton Law Offices in Boise today at 208.344.5555 or toll free 888.716.8021 for a free initial consultation, or contact us online at http://www.mortonlawyers.com/contact.cfm.
