Why Hire a Lawyer?
Doctors are trusted to take care of their patient’s health, but a single mistake can have severe consequences for ourselves and loved ones. Doctors are some of the most trusted professionals we encounter in our lifetimes, and when they make mistakes the consequences can be catastrophic.

- If you think you have been the victim of medical malpractice in Michigan, don’t attempt to fight alone for what is owed to you.
Goodwin’s 5 Steps
The National Academy of Sciences reports that negligent doctors and hospitals are accidentally killing and harming more US citizens than AIDS, breast cancer, and auto accidents combined. The only way to improve health care is to get justice for those affected, and make the medical industry pay for their mistakes financially. If you suspect that you have suffered from medical malpractice take these five steps to protect your rights and ensure you receive the full compensation entitled to you by law:
Many malpractice cases have a “statute of limitations,” or a time frame when legal proceedings may be brought against a medical provider or institution. If you wait too long to begin your process of justice, it may be too late. In Michigan you must often begin proceedings no later than two years from the time of injury.
Obtain copies of documents
Get copies of all documents relating to your case no matter how inconsequential they may seem. Move quickly, as occasionally documents can be “lost” after proceedings have started.
Create a list of all doctor visits and prescriptions
Record each visit to a doctor or healthcare professional. Note everyone involved in your care and make a note of the medical environment for each day.
Record in detail exactly what happened
Write down exactly what happened, how you were affected and when the injuries happened. Don’t wait, because it is possible you will forget certain, small details that could mean the difference between winning and losing your case.
