Medical Malpractice in Utah

Physicians take an oath to "first do no harm." Unfortunately, sometimes patients are injured or even killed in the course of medical treatment. If you, or someone you love, has been injured by a doctor or nurse, or at a hospital or medical practice, talk to a medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible. Under Utah negligence law, you may have grounds for a lawsuit.

Four Things to Know About Medical Malpractice Law in Utah

Do you think you might be a victim of medical malpractice? Here are four important things to know before hiring a lawyer:

  1. In most instances, Utah medical malpractice law requires that your lawsuit must be filed within two years of the date you learned of your injury or should have learned of your injury. At most, your med mal lawsuit must be filed within four years of the date the malpractice occurred.
  2. For your medical malpractice claim to be successful, it's not enough to simply prove that your doctor made a mistake. You must also show that your doctor didn't follow the standards of good medical care.
  3. Most medical malpractice lawyers charge their clients a contingency fee. When you hire a lawyer on contingency, the lawyer only gets paid if you successfully recover money from the healthcare provider.
