The Role Of Negligence In Medical Malpractice
Suits
Negligence plays a key role in medical
malpractice lawsuits. When doctors or nurses do
not adhere to the standards of care they are
sworn to uphold and that negligence results in
patients being injured or killed, they can be
held legally responsible for their negligent
actions. Negligence is defined as any action (or
lack of taking action) that results in damage
that could have been reasonably prevented.

Medical Malpractice Can Be Fatal
Some injuries caused by medical malpractice can
result in death. For example, if a patient
contracts a septic infection because of a surgery
in which non-sterile implements were used and is
not able to recover from the infection, the
surgeon can be sued for medical malpractice and a
wrongful death suit may be filed by the grieving
family members.

What Is The Statute Of Limitations For Medical
Malpractice Cases In Washington?
In most cases, there is a three-year statute of
limitations in place for medical malpractice
cases. All claims of injuries and damages must be
filed within three years from the date of the
injury. You must act quickly if you are injured
due to a medical mistake. Your attorney will want
to have you and your medical records examined by
an expert medical witness.
