What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, hospital or other healthcare professional causes injury to a patient through negligence or omission. The negligence or error can happen during diagnosis, treatment, aftercare or ongoing health management.

While most doctors and nurses do their very best to provide the highest quality of care, mistakes in the medical field do happen. The following are some of the most common and shocking incidents that are cause for a medical malpractice lawsuit.

When Do I Need An Injury Lawyer?
Insurance companies and large corporations are often working immediately after an incident with injuries to start building a case against the injured party. Hiring an attorney who is experienced in dealing with medical malpractice cases and knows how to stand up to those third-parties, makes you more powerful.
How Long Do I Have To File An Injury Lawsuit?
Because the statute of limitations (or the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit) varies based on the type of case, we encourage you to contact an attorney immediately. It’s always the right time to get answers as you may have less time than you think.
What Is My Medical Malpractice Claim Worth?
No two injury cases are the same. It is important to find an experienced attorney who puts in the work to understand all the details of your case before giving you a number or making false promises to you and your loved ones.
How Much Does A Medical Malpractice Lawyer Cost?
There’s a misconception that a medical malpractice attorney costs too much money and that you can’t afford one. Washington Law Center is different. We do not get paid upfront. Unless we get you compensated there are no attorney fees.
