Medical Malpractice Expansion

Recent case law has expanded the definition of what would be considered medical malpractice. In addition to traditional malpractice by doctors or nurses, any injury at a medical facility may fall under the requirements of the Civil Practice and Remedies Code Ch. 74. This chapter, that was created under tort reform, requires that a special report be provided by the Plaintiff within 120 days of filing suit. It also provides for the possibility of an interlocutory appeal by the doctor or facility. The end result can be delays in reaching any resolution or trial of any malpractice case. The Meyerson Law Firm has tactics to reduce some of the risks and delays associated with malpractice claims.
