If you have been seriously injured as a result of medical malpractice, please contact one of our Hartford medical malpractice lawyers for help.
Healthcare is no longer the personal affair it was even only ten years ago. Today, with the pervasiveness of managed care companies and other insurers, your doctor, the one person who should know your healthcare needs the best, is often beholden to your HMO or PPO. While doctors have access to more medical devices, diagnostic tests and drugs than ever before, the insurance companies have been, and will continue to be, motivated not by your best interest but rather their own bottom line. Because of the increased pressure placed on doctors by insurers to operate highly efficient offices, personal time spent with your doctor has likely declined over the past several years. The result? More misdiagnoses and medical errors.
In fact, statistics on medical malpractice reveal that for every medical error reported, over 50 go unreported. Don’t pay for your healthcare provider’s negligence.
If you have been seriously injured by the actions of a doctor, insurance company, hospital, nurse or other medical professional, it is important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights.
Our Connecticut trial lawyers have successfully represented people injured as the result of medical malpractice. Please keep in mind that there are time limits within which you must commence suit. In most circumstances, under Connecticut law, you have 2 years from the date of the medical malpractice to file a malpractice lawsuit. You also must have a medical expert issue a written report concluding that malpractice has taken place prior to filing the lawsuit. The written report is appended to the lawsuit when it is filed with the court. Consequently, it is important to retain your attorney sooner rather than later when pursuing a medical malpractice claim.
