- West Sacramento
Medical facilities in Davis and Central California serve thousands of patients daily. While most patients receive adequate care, some patients unfortunately suffer harm due to avoidable medical errors. Some common incidents of hospital negligence we handle include:
- Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis - Failing to promptly and properly diagnose a medical condition leads to disease progression, unnecessary pain and poorer prognosis.
- Childbirth Injuries - Errors during prenatal care or delivery can cause birth injuries with lifelong effects.
- Surgical Mistakes - From operating on the wrong body part to leaving foreign objects inside patients after surgery.
- Medication Errors - Administering the wrong drug, incorrect dosage or failing to manage adverse reactions can all constitute negligence.
- Anesthesia Errors - Improper administration of anesthesia during surgery can result in serious nerve damage, cardiac arrest or even death.
Any healthcare provider--including doctors, nurses, specialists, surgeons, anesthesiologists, midwives, therapists and the hospital itself--can be held liable for medical malpractice if their failures or errors cause preventable patient injury or death.Harms and Injuries Our Davis Medical Malpractice Lawyers Handle

Sadly, medical negligence can even cause wrongful death of patients who entrust their wellbeing to doctors and hospitals. We fight on behalf of grieving families whose loved one died prematurely because of substandard medical care.
If you or a loved suffered harm in a Davis hospital, clinic or other regional medical facility due to an avoidable medical mistake, we commit to helping you pursue maximum compensation through our proven legal process.Hospital Responsibility for Negligent Care by Affiliated Doctors
When hospital staff physicians, independent doctors with privileges, nurses, technicians and other providers commit errors harming patients, the hospital shares responsibility. Through legal doctrines like apparent agency and corporate negligence, hospitals have a duty to oversee everyone practicing medicine under their credentialing. Thus, we pursue compensation not only from the individual negligent doctor/nurse but the hospital itself for:
- Granting privileges to incompetent, unqualified or impaired physicians
- Failing to supervise physician performance
- Not enforcing adequate protocols, safety policies and quality care standards
By holding hospitals directly accountable for overlooking substandard care by affiliated doctors and staff, we deter future negligence protecting public safety.Statute of Limitations Deadlines for Filing Claims
Pursuing rightful compensation after medical negligence requires legal action within strict filing periods under California malpractice statute of limitations laws. While ordinary injury claims allow two years to sue, medical-related harms must be brought sooner given legal notice requirements adding an additional 75-90 days.
Thus, it is essential injury victims and grieving families contact our Davis medical malpractice lawyers promptly to avoid forfeiting your rights. We can evaluate the mistakes made and viability of the case for no charge to advise you regarding legal options and next steps you must take for the best chance of success seeking damages for negligence.How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases
At our distinguished medical malpractice firm, meticulous investigation by medical experts lays the foundation for successful litigation against negligent healthcare providers. Here is how we build strong malpractice cases through in-depth investigation:Comprehensive Medical Records Review
The very first step after meeting a prospective client is to gather the complete set of medical records pertaining to their alleged malpractice-related injury. This includes records from before and after the errors occurred to assess both standards of care and the resultant harm. We leave no document unreviewed in piecing together what went wrong.Panel of Expert Witnesses Across Specialties
We retain several independent specialists certified in their field to scrutinize the medical records. For example, if surgery led to a wound infection due to lack of sterile protocols, we would consult surgeons and infectious disease doctors. Or if mismanaged labor and delivery caused infant brain damage, we would engage OB/GYNs, neonatologists and pediatric neurologists.Identifying Precise Negligent Acts & Omissions
Our medical experts pinpoint where care deviated from standards accepted in the specific medical community and specialty. By calling out the exact failures, whether erroneous technique, lack of monitoring, delayed response, etc., we build an ironclad case for breach of duty.Proving Preventable Harm Suffered
Not only do our testifying experts demonstrate subpar care but also show how it directly resulted in avoidable adverse outcomes for the patient. Making clear that state-of-the-art care would have prevented the injury or death is instrumental in establishing liability. After very thorough record investigation and expert analysis, we are prepared to prove medical negligence caused our client’s suffering.Why Choose Us?
