Medical malpractice is unfortunately an all too common occurrence in the United States, affecting millions of people each year. As a result of medical malpractices, 250,000 people unnecessarily lose their lives each year.

If you or your loved one have sought assistance from a medical care doctor or facility for an injury or illness but were further harmed as a result of the negligence of a doctor, nurse or any staff member who assisting, contact Newland & Newland, LLP for more information about your rights to relief.
Understanding Medical Malpractice
Medical Malpractice occurs when a medical professional, or someone acting under the direction of a medical professional, deviates from the standard of care which causes you or your loved one to suffer harm as a result of the negligent care. A personal injury lawsuit allows you to sue the doctor, hospital, or other care provider for your injuries.
The most important thing to do after an accident or incident that causes medical injuries is to seek specialized care to obtain corrective services. Bringing your health back to a functioning level is most important to a speedy recovery.
Once you recognize you are the victim of medical malpractice, it is important to speak with an experienced attorney at Newland & Newland, LLP to determine your rights. There is a two-year statute of limitations on medical malpractices claims. The two-year time period begins when the injured party knows or should have known about the incident of medical malpractice. Unless you meet one of several exceptions, your right to sue will be eliminated after the statute of limitations has passed.
