How long does it take to sue a hospital?
A lawsuit against a hospital or its staff for medical malpractice is almost always a large and complex case. The defense of medical providers against malpractice claims tends to be particularly aggressive compared to other civil cases. In part this is due to the fact that doctors find a good deal of natural favor with many jurors, allowing the defense to win frequently at trial. Additionally, the discovery process is commonly long and arduous, including numerous depositions and frequent motion hearings in court relating to disputes over what evidence must be handed over by each side. As a result, suing a hospital for malpractice is typically reserved for cases involving very serious injuries.
