What is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs in a variety of ways, including:

  • Surgical errors
  • Delayed treatment
  • A misdiagnosis
  • Early discharge
  • Prescription problems
  • Healthcare-acquired infections
  • And more

Any time a patient’s treatment deviates from the standard of care met by medical professionals with similar training or experience and causes injuries or illness.

How often do these mistakes happen?

We know that medical mistakes kill around 250,000 people in the US each year, making them the third leading cause of death in the country. However, this is only part of the overall picture, as millions of others survive medical errors. These victims and their families are left dealing with the consequences of malpractice, sometimes for the rest of their lives.

Is there a statute of limitations for me to file a medical malpractice case in Utah?

Yes, there is a two-year statute of limitations from the date the injury was or should have been discovered to file a lawsuit. You cannot file a medical malpractice lawsuit for more than four years from the occurrence of the malpractice.

Did I lose my right to file a lawsuit by signing a consent form?

No, you did not lose your right to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. Consent forms are vital in the medical field. Your doctor needs to fully explain the risks and complications associated with a procedure, medication, or course of treatment. When you sign the form, you are agreeing that you wish the continue, even knowing what could happen.

However, this does not absolve a medical professional from the standard of care, and medical malpractice can still occur if:

  • A known risk was not on the consent form, or the full probability of complications was not explained to the patient.
  • The care you received before, during, and after the procedure was negligent.
