Whether you were injured by a surgical error, medication or anesthesia error, improper treatment, childbirth error, or other type of medical malpractice, our firm will help you file a claim to pursue justice. Doctors and others in the healthcare industry owe a duty of care to patients. This means they must provide reasonably safe, accurate, and effective treatment. If your doctor breached this duty of care, he or she must be held accountable in court.
Infections, internal hemorrhaging, and other serious conditions could result from medical malpractice. Victims may require extensive treatment, revision surgeries, medication, and physical therapy to heal. Let us help you seek fair compensation in a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Laws Regarding Medical Malpractice Claims in Iowa
In the state of Iowa, the statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice claim is 2 years. This means you only have 2 years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit against those responsible. If you wait too long and fail to file a claim within the deadline, you may be unable to pursue a settlement. That is why you need to get in touch with our experienced Burlington medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible. We will help you gather evidence, file the necessary documents in a timely manner, and aggressively represent you in negotiation or litigation.
Evidence to build your case may include:
- Medical records
- Witness statements
- Pictures or videos
- Other documentation
