1. If I had a bad result from a surgery, can I bring a medical malpractice claim?
    Not every bad result is caused by malpractice. To have a medical malpractice case, you must show that the medical provider did not meet the accepted standard of care. A medical malpractice lawyer will work with experts to determine if your provider met the standard of care.
  2. If my prescriptions caused serious injury, can I bring a lawsuit?
    Yes. If you suffered harm or injury as a result of receiving the wrong medicine from a pharmacy, having the wrong medicine or amount prescribed, or being prescribed contraindicated medicines, you may have a case against the doctor, pharmacy, or drug manufacturer.
  3. If a family member died, who can file a wrongful death suit?
    In the case of the loss of a loved one, an estate will need to be opened to bring a lawsuit. NH laws allow a surviving spouse to access their deceased spouse's medical records, and then a medical malpractice lawyer can assess the case and help open an estate if needed.
  4. How long do I have to bring a medical malpractice lawsuit?
    In NH and MA you generally have 3 years from the date of the malpractice to file a case. However, in some cases the time limit can be as short as 2 years, or in other cases it can be longer than 3 years. If you're considering a claim, contact a medical malpractice lawyer to discuss your case.
