Medical Malpractice Procedures RCW 7.70

In Washington, and around the country, medical malpractice claims have been on the rise.  The new RCW 7.70 and related statutes attempt to minimize the cost of medical malpractice claims in Washington by requiring a pre-suit notice.  An injured party, or her attorney, must give the health care provider a 90 day notice prior to filing suit.  Presumably this will facilitate negotiations and potentially resolve the case before a costly litigation ensues.  If notice is not given, per statute, you may be precluded entirely from pursuing your claim.  Thus, legal counsel is imperative if your claim is worth a substantial sum of money or if you are nearing your three year statute of limitations.
