Were you injured due to a doctor’s negligence in Boise and have questions? Check out these 3 medical malpractice tips, then call our lawyers.
Time Limits For a Medical Malpractice Claim
Many clients wonder about the time limits that apply to cases against hospitals or medical professionals. There are specific time limits, and it’s important to be familiar with the specific time limits, as they can vary depending on the situation. For example, if the medical provider is an employee of the state, there are special notice provisions that the lawyer and the individual need to be familiar with as part of the process of filing that claim in a timely fashion. The general rule in Idaho is you have two years from the time when you’ve been harmed until the time when you must file your lawsuit before you lose the right to file the lawsuit, but that’s a very general rule, and there are multiple exceptions depending on the circumstances.
While there’s a two-year statute of limitations that applies to many cases in Idaho, there are a variety of cases that are limited by different specific rules. You need to consult a lawyer that specializes in medical malpractice cases, who understands how those statute of limitations rules apply to your specific case. The bottom line is, consult an experienced professional with experience in medical malpractice cases so they understand the answer to the time limitations that apply to your case. At Hepworth Holzer we understand those issues, and we can give you guidance on those questions.
Qualifying a Medical Malpractice Claim
If medical care did not make you better, would you have a medical malpractice case? There is no easy answer to that question, but consider a few general observations. Medical malpractice cases require you to prove that the doctor did something wrong or that the healthcare provider did something wrong that prevented you from making a recovery or that actually caused harm in the course of the care being provided. The simple fact that you didn’t get better as a result of the care provided really is not a very strong indication that you have a medical malpractice case.
Medical malpractice cases are complicated and they require significant injuries in order for them to be cases that lend themselves to the litigation process. There’s no simple answer to the question of whether your failure to recover is the fault of the doctor. The best answer is you need to consult a lawyer who is experienced with medical malpractice cases and they can give you the guidance you need in order to decide whether you have a case worth looking into further or not. If you have questions about medical malpractice cases, please contact the Hepworth Holzer law firm. We’re experienced with those cases and would love to help you.
Choosing a Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Are there any special considerations that one should have in mind when choosing a medical malpractice attorney in Idaho? The simple answer to that question is it is important to hire a lawyer who has a well-established history of handling medical malpractice cases. Medical malpractice cases have multiple special rules that apply to them in the state of Idaho. You need to have a lawyer in Idaho who is familiar with all those special rules, and that all underscores the importance of hiring someone who has handled multiple medical malpractice cases and focuses a substantial portion of their practice on handling medical malpractice cases. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer is critical to having a good experience with a lawyer handling a medical malpractice case.
