Can my medical malpractice claim be reopened after it has been settled?

This is a question that malpractice victims often ask if they have accepted a settlement offer that was below what they deserved or needed. Unfortunately, once a medical malpractice case has been closed or settled in court, it usually cannot be reopened for several reasons. When you agree to settle a malpractice case, you will be asked to sign a release that you agree to be prohibited from pursuing the same type of legal action in the future. Instead of going through the difficulty of trying to reopen a case, it is much wiser to enlist the help of a medical malpractice attorney who can help you recover maximum compensation the first time around.
