How Long will a Medical Malpractice Claim Take to Resolve?

There is no average length to resolve a claim for medical negligence. Due to the complicated nature of these cases, they are given extended discovery tracks. This means that the parties will be provided a prolonged period to send written questions and answers, take depositions, argue motions, and retain experts for trial. An agreeable settlement negotiation may decrease the duration of a client’s claim.

How Much Will A Medical Malpractice Claim Cost?

If you are a victim of misdiagnosis, your ability to reclaim your life shouldn’t depend on your capability to pay. We promise that there are no risks to filing a credible claim – no up front costs and no legal fees unless we win.

Some commonly misdiagnosed cancers include the following:

Pancreatic Cancer

May be misdiagnosed as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), gallstones or pancreatitis, diabetes.

Lung Cancer
