No, medical malpractice cases cannot be reopened once they’ve been settled. Once a settlement is reached, both parties sign a release in which they forfeit the right to take any legal action in the future in relation to the incident.

Medical Malpractice Cases Are Civil Cases

In fact, medical malpractice cases are civil cases, any type of civil case cannot be reopened. You get one shot—no matter the circumstances.

That’s why it’s crucial that you secure trustworthy counsel, especially in medical malpractice cases, and that you fully understand the extent of your loses.
