What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a provider acts in a manner that deviates from the accepted standard of care. We understand that doctors are humans, which is why not every error is an act of malpractice. To prove a case of medical malpractice, you must be able to prove:

  1. There was an established doctor/patient relationship.
  2. The doctor behaved in a negligent manner, breaching the accepted standard of care.
  3. Your sustained injuries as a result of this breach.
  4. Your injuries led to specific damages.

How Much Do Birmingham Medical Malpractice Lawyers Cost?

At Mezrano Law, we work on a contingency basis for medical malpractice. A contingency fee basis means we do not charge you anything unless we win a settlement in or out of court. This fee structure ensures we work hard for your case and that you don't have even more out-of-pocket expenses during a stressful time. Reach out today for a free consultation. At Mezrano Law, we offer contingency fee schedules for other practice areas such as:

What is the Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice?

You only have two years to bring a medical malpractice claim in Alabama. That two-year starts on the day you were injured. However, you have six months to file a claim if the injury wasn't discovered until after those two years. All claims are barred after four years.

How Much is My Medical Malpractice Claim Worth?
