Common Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle

Common Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle

Medical malpractice impacts thousands of Californians every year, causing life-altering suffering. We have experience with many types of medical negligence cases, enabling us to determine what went wrong in your situation and who should be held accountable. Some examples of medical errors resulting in injury or death that warrant investigation into a malpractice lawsuit include:

Medication Errors

Being given the wrong medication, incorrect dosage, or experiencing an adverse reaction can all constitute negligence. Medication errors are especially common after discharge, highlighting the need for proper instructions.

Surgical Mistakes

Botched operations, surgery on the wrong site, unnecessary procedures, retained foreign objects and improper wound closure can lead to permanent impairment or additional health issues.

Misdiagnosis/Delayed Diagnosis

Failure to promptly and properly diagnose conditions like cancer, infections, or bleeding in the brain costs precious time and leads to worse prognoses. Catching these conditions early is critical.

Birth Injuries

Poor doctor response to fetal distress, improper use of birth instruments, inadequate emergency c-section procedures, etc. can leave infants with cerebral palsy, paralysis, developmental delays and other impediments.

Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect

Bedsores, falls, malnutrition, dehydration, excessive restraint use, emotional abuse, and other forms of nursing home negligence cause undue pain and suffering.

If you or someone you love suffered harm under a healthcare provider’s care in Desert Hot Springs or anywhere in Riverside County, contact our lawyers for dedicated legal guidance during this difficult time.

How Our Medical Malpractice Lawyers Investigate Your Claim

Hospital negligence and medical errors often get covered up internally. We know the right questions to ask and records to demand to uncover what happened. An exhaustive independent investigation is key to proving malpractice and determining every liable party. We leave no stone unturned and devote substantial resources to demonstrating how clients like you were wronged when hospitals cut corners or doctors rushed procedures.

Here is an overview of our investigation process:

  • Order a full set of medical records including charts, nurses’ notes, images, etc. to construct a timeline
  • Hire independent medical experts across pertinent specialties to analyze the records
  • Identify any subpar medical care through deviations from accepted protocols
  • Assess all healthcare providers’ level of responsibility
  • Determine if more diligent diagnostics or treatment could have prevented harm
  • Calculate the true cost of the client’s injuries and losses

By gathering multiple external medical opinions, we establish clear incidents of malpractice. Then we have evidence to demand a settlement or pursue compensation in court if needed.
