Q: Do I need a medical malpractice lawyer?

1 Answer | Asked in Medical Malpractice for California on May 4, 2015

Answered on May 4, 2015

Follow Question


John M DeProspo's answer
In your state, a medical malpractice action for injury must be brought within one year from the date the claimant discovered the negligent act, but no more than three years from the date of injury. It appears your time to look into a possible case has expired. I do not think you would have had a viable medical malpractice case in any event. You might want to contact a medical malpractice lawyer in your area for a free consultation nevertheless.

Robert Jason De Groot's answer
If you cannot be truthful with your own attorney, they may not take the case. The problem is that these insurance company defense lawyers are going to look into your entire lives, and they can do that. You need to let your attorney know about anything that the other side might bring up, beforehand so that they have time to formulate theories.
