Injured Due to Medical Malpractice?

Do You Suspect Medical Malpractice?

Contact a Los Angeles medical malpractice attorney from our firm.

Medical malpractice isn't automatically indicated from the worsening of a medical condition or even the death of a seriously ill or injured patient. Medical errors are actually far more common than the average person suspects, but most mistakes are not serious or are caught before any serious damage is done to the patient.

Statistics vary, but it is estimated that 200,000 to 300,000 hospital deaths are caused by medical malpractice each year.

Many patients never know that their condition was worsened or their recovery time was extended because of mistakes. Most surviving family members do not suspect their loved one died as a result of mistakes or negligence. If you suspect you have been a victim of medical malpractice consult a lawyer immediately as the time you have to file a claim is limited. It can be as short as six months in some cases.

Information on Medical Malpractice Cases

Doctors and other medical professionals are expected to provide treatment which meets a certain standard of care. It takes medical experts to determine that this standard was not met. Proving medical malpractice to a jury made up of laymen can be made difficult by the defending attorney's attempts to confuse and persuade the jury that the injury the patient suffered wasn't really due to any error.

This type of case requires an experienced medical malpractice lawyer with a clear understanding of the accepted medical standard and the communication skills to help each member of the jury understand each medical mistake and how it caused injury or death.

Common medical malpractice can result in catastrophic injuries and includes:

  • Anesthesia errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Prescription and medication dosage errors
  • Misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose
  • Mistreatment and failure to treat
  • Birth injuries
  • Nursing home abuse

The legal team at our firm is prepared to help anyone who has been seriously injured through medical mistakes. Discuss your malpractice experience with an understanding personal injury lawyer at our firm who will demand the maximum compensation for all damages.
