Medical Malpractice in Michigan

Doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals accept a crucial duty when they decide to work in the healthcare industry. At some point, nearly everyone will visit a medical professional, whether it be in an emergency room, operating room or an outpatient visit to a primary care provider. For the most part, healthcare providers help patients overcome their ailments; however, occasionally a medical professional's negligence causes real harm to a patient. It may be caused by an inexperienced doctor misdiagnosing a patient's disease, a busy emergency room physician's oversight, or an overworked pharmacist giving a patient the wrong medication.
