Holding Hospitals Responsible for Malpractice in Montana
Specific protocols are supposed to be followed in the operating room in order to ensure that the correct surgery is performed and that it is performed well. All too often, these protocols are not followed and life-threatening mistakes are made. At Bulman Law Associates, our Montana attorneys know how to protect your rights and will fight for you in and out of the courtroom.
Even when the head surgeon delegates parts of the operation to other surgeons or health care professionals, the head surgeon can still be held responsible. We will guide you through the medical malpractice process and answer all of your questions along the way.
Montana Medical Legal Panel
Before any claim against a Montana healthcare provider can be filed in court, the complaint must be presented to the Montana medical legal panel in Helena, MT. A committee of three doctors and three lawyers will be appointed to review the medical evidence and opinions we may submit to show that a deviation from the proper medical standard of care caused an injury to our client. The panel issues its determination about whether a standard of care was violated and whether the violation caused an injury. Neither the patient nor the healthcare provider is bound by the decision. The patient then may file a lawsuit if the case is not settled. Our lawyers are very experienced with the medical legal panel.
