Medical Malpractice in Montana

Has a hospital's mistake caused you more suffering than the problem they were trying to treat? Has a doctor's visit left you hurting? If you've been injured as a result of a medical mistake or missed diagnosis, speak to a Montana medical malpractice attorney immediately. You may have grounds for a lawsuit which, if successful, would allow you to collect compensation for your injuries.

Things to Know Before Hiring an Attorney

Here are some important things to know before hiring medical malpractice attorneys:

  • Most Montana med mal attorneys charge what's known as a contingency fee. When you hire a lawyer on contingency, you only pay the lawyer if your case is successful and you recover money from the defendant.
  • Medical malpractice cases commonly focus on missed diagnoses, birth injuries, defective drugs, brain injuries and anesthesiologist errors.
  • If you win your medical malpractice claim, you'll recover money to pay for injury-related medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other costs connected to your injury.
  • If your lawsuit is successful, you can collect money from the party or parties responsible for your injuries, including the doctor, nurse, medical practice, hospital and others involved in your case.
  • You shouldn't hire just any personal injury lawyer to handle your lawsuit. A Montana med mal lawyer will have specific knowledge necessary to try your case in a court of law.
  • You have three years (known as the statute of limitations) to file your Montana medical malpractice lawsuit. But because med mal lawsuits take time to prepare, you shouldn't delay and should hire an attorney as soon as possible after your injury occurs.
