What do I do if I think I have a medical malpractice claim?
First thing I would tell you is to find an attorney who does medical malpractice. The reason I say that is, of all the areas of the law, this is probably the most difficult one to jump through all of the hoops. There are statute of limitation requirements that are generally shorter than the normal statute of limitations for any given client. Second of all, they’re very expert intensive. Experts have to be hired early on to identify breeches in the standard of care by either the hospital or the physician ultimately responsible. Lastly, there are notice requirements that are required by statute in Mississippi, that you must provide the healthcare prior to even bringing a suit. If you don’t follow these requirements or jump through these procedural hoops, your claim can be dismissed with no hope for bringing it again in the future.
