Medical Malpractice Attorney in US Virgin Islands

Protecting Your Rights as a Patient

If a person is injured or falls ill, he or she typically goes to a doctor to seek medical help. Doctors and medical professionals have a duty to their patients to act with reasonable care and do everything they can to help the patient. Sadly, they sometimes fail to uphold this duty, which can lead to injury or illness at the hands of medical professionals. If you were hurt, injured, or your condition was worsened as a result of negligent medical care, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Representing All Types of Medical Malpractice Cases

Medical mistakes are not just limited to the operating room or emergency rooms. In fact, they can happen in a number of different environments. Anyone who is on a medical staff—from doctors to nurses to paramedics—can make mistakes or act negligently. Any individual who makes a medical mistake that leads to the injury of a patient should be held responsible.

A few examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Failure to treat
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Prescription errors
  • Birth injuries
  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia errors

U.S. Virgin Islands Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations:

A statute of limitations establishes how long you are able to file a lawsuit after your medical malpractice-related injury. According to Virgin Islands Code § 166d subsection a, victims of medical malpractice have up to 2 years following the date of their injury to file their malpractice lawsuit. One exception to this rule is if your injury is a result of a foreign object being left inside your body after a surgery, in which case you have 2 years from the date that this is discovered.

It is extremely important to keep the statute of limitations in mind when determining whether or not to file a lawsuit and whether or not to hire professional legal representation. Filing a lawsuit can be a lengthy process, and if you fail to file your lawsuit within the specified amount of time your case will most likely be thrown out. Don't risk your compensation by delaying.
