What we do for those suffering because of medical negligence

You trust your medical provider to give the very best care. Sometimes, though, a mistake can lead to disastrous consequences. Not every bad medical experience amounts to medical malpractice. Yvonne Griffin knows how to investigate medical injuries to determine whether the facts support a lawsuit. If a lawsuit is advisable, she knows how best to develop a case to hold the responsible healthcare provider accountable for the injuries or deaths that result from his or her negligence.

Frequently asked questions about Virginia medical malpractice cases

Can I sue for medical malpractice?

A patient injured due to medical negligence can file suit.  When the injured patient is a minor, his or her parents may sue on his/her behalf. When someone dies as a result of medical negligence, the administrator of the deceased person’s estate may sue for wrongful death.

How long do I have to bring suit?

Generally speaking, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice in Virginia is two years from the date of the malpractice or from the last date you treated with the same doctor for the same or a related illness. An exception exists for foreign objects found in your body. Pinpointing the statute of limitations date in a medical malpractice case is very technical. You should always consult an attorney regarding the facts of your case.
 
For minors, generally speaking, the statute of limitations is two years or until the child’s tenth birthday, whichever is longer. In the event a child dies due to medical negligence, the statute of limitations is two years only – the date of the child’s tenth birthday does not matter in such a case. Again, pinpointing the statute of limitations is very technical. You should contact an attorney. Certain conditions or events may change the length of your statute of limitations, so contact an attorney about your particular case.
