Understanding Medical Malpractice and Your Legal Options

Medical malpractice, also known as medical negligence, occurs when a healthcare professional breaches the established standard of care when treating a patient, resulting in injury or death. Some examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a serious illness or condition
  • Surgical errors and complications
  • Birth injuries to the baby due to medical negligence
  • Medication errors and pharmacy mix-ups
  • Failure to order necessary medical tests

1 yearThe effects of medical malpractice can be catastrophic, resulting in conditions such as severe brain damage, paralysis, cerebral palsy, stroke, amputation of limbs, and even wrongful death.

If you suspect you or a loved one has been the victim of medical negligence, it is important to understand your legal options. An Agoura Hills medical malpractice lawyer can help you build a strong claim by:

  • Investigating what went wrong and determining if acceptable standards were breached
  • Consulting medical experts to attest malpractice occurred
  • Gather evidence such as medical records, doctor/nurse notes, lab reports
  • Calculate current and future medical costs and other damages
  • Negotiate an appropriate settlement from liable parties

The statute of limitations - the deadline to take legal action - is only 1 year from the date of discovery in California. Given the complexities surrounding medical malpractice cases, it is wise to speak to a lawyer sooner rather than later.

Damages Available in Medical Malpractice Cases

Being the victim of medical malpractice can not only result in devastating injuries but also significant financial loss now and into the future. If negligence is proven, those found liable need to pay appropriate damages.

Economic Damages

Economic damages in medical malpractice seek to reimburse tangible monetary losses. These include:

  • Medical expenses: All medical costs directly related to the malpractice such as hospital/doctor bills, therapy, rehabilitation, in-home nursing care, medical equipment and prescription medications. Both past and future expected costs are claimed.
  • Loss of income: Value of income lost to date - as well as loss expected in future - due to inability to work. Factors like occupation, salary, benefits, retirement plans, training for new career, and work-life expectancy are considered.
  • Loss of household services: Cost of hiring replacement services the injured can no longer provide like house cleaning, lawn care, childcare and transportation services.
Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages address quality-of-life losses that do not come with a precise price tag but profoundly impact victims and families. Types include:

  • Pain and suffering: Seeks to provide monetary relief for physical discomfort and emotional trauma caused by malpractice.
  • Loss of consortium: Compensates the spouse/family for loss of companionship and intimacy with injured.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life: Accounts for loss of ability to participate in hobbies, activities, sports and entertainment sources once enjoyed.

An experienced medical malpractice lawyer thoroughly calculates both economic and noneconomic damages to build the strongest claim possible while compassionately guiding clients through the process.
