Auburn, CA Medical Malpractice Lawyer - Hospital Negligence Attorneys

Patients put their trust in doctors and healthcare professionals to provide competent care. However, medical mistakes happen far too often. If you or a loved one suffered harm because of substandard care in or around Auburn, you may have grounds for a malpractice lawsuit. The dedicated lawyers of Moseley Collins Law help victims and their families pursue maximum compensation in these complex cases.

Understanding Medical Negligence

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider fails to meet the accepted standard of care. This failure directly causes significant injury or harm to a patient. Some examples include:

  • Misdiagnosing or delaying diagnosis of a serious illness or condition
  • Surgical errors such as operating on the wrong site
  • Birth-related injuries to mother or child
  • Medication errors and pharmacy mix-ups
  • Failure to properly monitor patients
  • Ordering improper treatment or lack of follow-up

Not all poor outcomes constitute malpractice. Medicine involves complex judgments and some risks. However, you need to investigate negligent, reckless, or intentional wrongdoing leading to:

  • Coma
  • Paralysis, quadriplegia, paraplegia
  • Severe brain damage
  • Amputation of limb(s)
  • Permanent disability
  • Birth defects
  • Wrongful death

Moseley Collins Law has over 40 years pursuing justice for victims of medical negligence. Our track record of millions recovered for past clients reflects deep expertise with these sensitive cases. We handle every aspect from start to finish while you focus on recovery and family.

Key Areas of Medical Malpractice

Key Areas of Medical Malpractice

There are many points where breakdowns in care can occur. Some leading categories of medical negligence claims that our lawyers handle include:

Emergency Room Errors

ER doctors and nurses work under pressure in chaotic environments, yet mistakes can devastate patients and families. Failure to properly diagnose and stabilize treatment in critical hours after admission leads to permanent damage or fatality for too many.

Surgical Mistakes

With modern technology, serious complications from invasive surgery are inexcusable. Operating on the wrong body part, leaving foreign objects inside patients after closure, infections from poor hygiene, anesthesia overdoses, and negligent aftercare are all grounds for malpractice claims with surgical errors.

Birth Injuries

The joy of childbirth vanishes when the negligent actions or omissions of an obstetrician, anesthesiologist, nurse, or pediatrician harm mother or baby. Birth injuries like Erb's or Klumpke's palsy, facial paralysis, cerebral palsy, and fetal distress syndrome cause permanent lifelong disabilities.

Misdiagnosis & Delayed Diagnosis

Spotting and accurately identifying illnesses from symptoms takes skill and diligent effort. Missing a cancer diagnosis or mixing up patient lab tests leads to declining health, stronger diseases, quicker death, and multimillion dollar verdicts.

Nursing Home Abuse

Elderly negligence claims continue growing as Roberts Care Center, Auburn Oaks Care Center, Summerfield Healthcare Center and other local facilities fail their patients. Bed sores, malnutrition, dehydration, infections, falls, and emotional abuse require accountability.

If you suspect any medical professional or institution caused harm through negligent actions, you likely have solid grounds for a malpractice claim. The Moseley Collins Law team will launch a thorough independent investigation of what happened using the best medical experts available.

Frequently Asked QuestionsWhat Key Details Do I Need to Provide for Initial Case Evaluation?

Please share precise sequences of events - what procedure led to the injuries, exactly how the hospital or doctor caused harm, and all physical/mental impacts on your health. We also need access to all medical records and billing information. Photos or videos of injuries help too. We only require basics to make an initial assessment.

How Long After a Medical Mistake Can I Still File a Malpractice Lawsuit?

Every state has different guidelines. Most follow the general statute of limitations defined as 1-3 years from the date when an injury occurred or was reasonably discovered. It also varies by if it involves adults versus minors. We recommend contacting us as soon as possible after any incident causing significant harm to evaluate legal options. Never assume too much time passed - call today for urgent answers from an Auburn medical litigation expert.

What Kinds of Damages Might I Recover in a Successful Award?

There are different classifications of damage rewards both economic and non-economic. The former includes past/future healthcare costs, rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, and loss of potential earnings. Non-economic covers harder to quantify but equally critical categories like pain/suffering, mental anguish, loss of companionship or consortium, and lowered quality of life. Veteran litigators maximize the total value.

Who Pays the Settlement Check - the Individual Doctor, Hospital, or All Parties?

In most cases the medical center and/or physicians carry hefty malpractice insurance policies. You can receive payment from multiple liable parties. Rarely does an individual practitioner pay out of pocket - awards come from the insured entities. We identify all negligent actors during investigations to hold every accountable party responsible for damages.

Can You Help Me if My Injury Happened Years Ago?

Don't assume too much time has passed. Medical malpractice cases often involve adults well after the negligent incident. Minors get some allowance for years. We have taken cases over a decade old if negligence caused significant injury. Contact us even for old cases and we can analyze options.

I've Already Gotten Some Settlement Offers - Should I Accept Them?

We strongly advise speaking to a malpractice law specialist before accepting any offers after medical negligence. Insurance companies make lowball attempts to close cases cheap and quick. A lawyer determines real case value and negotiates optimally timed aggressive settlements favoring your best interests. Don't leave money on the table - allow us to powerfully negotiate top dollar for you.

Suffering because of medical negligence causes enough hardship. Securing justice deserves representation equal to the challenge from a proven Auburn medical malpractice lawyer group that wins maximum compensation. Call Moseley Collins Law today at 800-426-5546 for help taking the next step toward healing and closure.
