Types of Medical Negligence We Handle

There is an immense burden placed on healthcare providers to avoid errors and adhere to important safety protocols. But when preventable mistakes occur due to negligence, it often has devastating consequences for patients and family members. Some examples of hospital and doctor negligence the lawyers at Moseley Collins Law in Calexico handle include:

  • Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis - Failure to correctly recognize and diagnose illnesses in a timely way allows conditions to progress unchecked. Catching and treating diseases early is key for positive outcomes.
  • Childbirth Injuries - Mistakes during labor or delivery can lead to oxygen deprivation, brain damage, cerebral palsy and other harm to both mothers and infants.
  • Surgical Errors – Operating on the wrong site of the body, leaving foreign objects inside patients after surgery, uncontrolled bleeding and preventable infections point to serious system failures.
  • Medication Errors – Hospitals have strict systems for prescribing, dispensing and administering drugs to patients. When these safeguards fail – such as wrong drug choice, incorrect dose or timing issues - it can be disastrous.

No amount of money can make up for the profound physical pain and emotional grief malpractice victims endure. But financial recovery is necessary so families can afford long-term care and replace lost income over time. Our dedicated lawyers ease this difficult process.

How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases

How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases

When clients come to us with suspicions of medical malpractice, we deploy meticulous investigation techniques to build a strong case on their behalf. Successfully proving negligence by healthcare providers hinges on gathering and understanding all relevant facts. Our step-by-step approach includes:

Initial Case Assessment

We start by fully listening to a client’s account of what happened, while identifying the involved providers, health conditions preceding incidents, dates of treatment, resulting injury or losses, and all other pertinent details. Clients sign releases allowing us to gather medical records. We order complete files from physicians, labs, clinics and hospitals so nothing gets missed.

Consulting Medical Experts

We retain highly qualified medical experts from disciplines appropriate to each case. For example, obstetric cases may engage both an OB/GYN and pediatric neurologist. These specialists impartially review all records, applying their up-to-date knowledge to identify breaches from accepted standards of care. Their written analysis strengthens claims when we confront providers and pursue litigation if necessary.

Proving Causation Link

In addition to proving substandard practices occurred, our lawyers must demonstrate resulting disabilities, expenses and losses directly tied to that negligence. Solid causation links are key as we calculate all current and future damages victims now face due to the errors.

Negotiating with Insurance Companies

Once investigative findings pinpoint liability with the care providers, we notify relevant insurance carriers of a pending claim. Leveraging our expertise, we vigorously negotiate so victims receive just compensation without dragging through prolonged, costly litigation. But we always stand ready to take a case to court when warranted.

By leaving no stone unturned as we gather facts, our lawyers build an ironclad case blaming negligent medical providers for our clients’ suffering. This sets the stage for securing millions won in verdicts and settlements on their behalf over our 40+ year history.

Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Malpractice Claims

Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Malpractice Claims

Below are answers to 5 of the most common questions we receive about medical negligence cases:

How Do I Know if What Happened is Really Malpractice?

You may suspect malpractice if mistakes led to significant injury, death or costs that reasonable medical care could have prevented. Our lawyers thoroughly assess what went wrong and whether accepted standards were breached.

What Damages Can I Recover in a Lawsuit?

You may claim current and future medical costs, lost income & benefits, pain/suffering damages and more. Experienced lawyers maximize compensation you deserve.

How Long Do I Have to File a Malpractice Claim?

These cases must abide by California’s statute of limitations - typically 1 year from injury or discovery. Our lawyers immediately start investigating so no deadlines are missed.

Does Medical Negligence Have to Be Intentional?

Not necessarily. Even well-meaning doctors who try to provide appropriate care can still fail to meet reasonable safety protocols. Breaching standards is the key factor.

How Much Money Upfront Do I Need to Hire a Lawyer?

Our standard agreement defers payment until you recover damages, when a portion pays our lawyer fees/costs. So, you file with no out-of-pocket expenses.
