When you or a loved one seeks medical attention, you seek a medical provider you can trust. You safely assume that the medical provider will do everything in his power to help you, and care for you within the standard of care in the community. At times, however, a bad outcome is the result of a medical provider’s negligence. This is called medical malpractice.
Medical malpractice occurs when a hospital, doctor or other health care professional, through a negligent act or omission, causes an injury to a patient. The negligence might occur because of errors in diagnosis, treatment, or health management.
In order to succeed in proving that medical malpractice has occurred, we must prove that the medical provider departed from the standard of care in the community, and that this departure from the standard of care caused personal injuries.
In Connecticut, there is a two (2) year statute of limitations to bring a medical malpractice claim, so time is of the essence. Additionally, Connecticut requires that anyone filing a medical malpractice claim based upon negligence submit a “good faith certificate” with their complaint. This rule is established in General Statutes § 52-190a, and requires that the injured patient seek a similar health care provider to give an opinion that the medical provider departed from the standard of care. All of these rules and statutes create an uphill battle for the injured victim: a battle that Etemi Law is prepared to fight.
