When healthcare providers fail to meet reasonable standards of medical care, patients can be left with life-altering injuries. Our lawyers have seen just how devastating these errors can be to patients and families in Encinitas and neighboring cities.

Some of the most serious injuries caused by medical negligence we see in Encinitas-area cases include:

  • Surgical errors - surgeons perforating organs, operating on the wrong site, leaving foreign objects inside patients, causing severe infections, or other surgical mistakes resulting in grave harm.
  • Cancer misdiagnoses or delayed diagnosis - failing to properly screen, interpret tests, recognize symptoms, or order imaging resulting in cancers spreading unchecked.
  • Prescription errors - giving improper drug dosages, overlooking dangerous medication interactions, ignoring contraindications, or negligently managing prescriptions.
  • Emergency room mistakes - when ER doctors or nurses fail to properly triage, evaluate, diagnose, or treat acute health conditions.

Here are a few key reasons why clients choose us over other medical malpractice firms:

1. Millions Won for Clients Nationwide

While no outcome is ever guaranteed, our track record speaks for itself - we’ve won millions for injured clients across the country. Past medical malpractice verdicts and settlements do not guarantee future success but do demonstrate our experience advocating aggressively to hold medical professionals fully liable. When we take your hospital negligence case, you gain immediate credibility by having an accomplished law firm equipped with the resources and expertise to successfully go up against hospitals and doctors.

2. Lawyers Dedicated Solely to Medical Negligence Cases

We do not practice other areas of personal injury law - our sole focus and passion is representing clients who have suffered due to medical malpractice or negligence. This specialization allows us to vigorously investigate errors by healthcare facilities and medical providers that general practice lawyers may not have expertise in. Our extensive experience builds legal authority judges and hospital counsel recognize - and we won’t hesitate to take cases to trial when offers fail.

3. You Pay Legal Fees Only if We Win Compensation

We believe in sharing full risk - which means you pay nothing upfront to secure our legal representation or services - ever. Our promise is simple: if we do not successfully win compensation, then you owe us absolutely nothing at all. This pays only upon winning policy and lack of retainers or upfront costs ensures complete alignment - our only path to payment runs through tenaciously fighting to obtain maximum compensation through favorable verdict or settlement.

4. Immediate Medical Review and Case Investigation

Upon contacting us regarding medical negligence, we immediately conduct intake followed by retaining highly qualified medical experts across specialties to review your entire medical file start-to-finish. Thorough record review helps identify each exact negligent act or failure to meet reasonable standards of care - findings we then use retaining the best medical experts available for opinions and trial testimony. Early case investigation maximizes prospects for success provided we decide to take the case.

5. Relentless Record Gathering and Litigation

Simply having great lawyers or medical experts alone does not win trials - victory takes exhaustive preparation and evidence gathering. Our legal team leaves no stone unturned tracking down each pertinent medical report, note, imaging file, and record necessary to prove negligence - gathering exponentially more medical evidence than most firms ever could dedicate resources towards. Meticulous litigation skills then ensure only the strongest arguments are advanced persuasively before judges and juries.

Our level of client involvement and communication sets us apart even from other medical malpractice firms. Compassionate client advocacy includes clearly explaining risks, keeping you updated on progress, promptly returning calls, and counseling you through trial or settlement negotiations.
