Filing Medical Malpractice Claims Against The University Of Iowa Hospitals And Clinics
When you go to the hospital or visit the doctor, you never expect to leave with a new or worsened injury due to negligent mistakes made by your providers. Just like with other medical providers, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics patients who experienced new or worsened injuries due to medical malpractice can file a claim against them.
As the University of Iowa’s facilities are state run, the Iowa Tort Claims Act applies to medical malpractice cases. If the Tort Claims Act administrative process does not result in a settlement, our lawyers can help you file a medical malpractice lawsuit. While no amount of compensation can make up for the physical and mental trauma you suffered, it can help you pay for your medical expenses and get back on your feet.
