How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases

How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases

The lawyers at Moseley Collins Law approach every medical malpractice case through an extensive investigative process aimed at proving negligence and the full extent of damages caused to our injured clients.

Comprehensive Record Review

The first step involves acquiring and thoroughly reviewing all relevant medical records, billing statements, and other pertinent documents. This includes not just records related to the incident itself, but a complete history of the patient’s health and treatment. We leave no stone unturned, obtaining files from:

  • All treating physicians, specialists and facilities
  • Primary care provider
  • Health insurance companies
  • Pharmacies
  • Rehabilitation centers and other care providers
Consulting Medical Experts

We retain a panel of medical experts across every specialty to provide opinions on whether acceptable standards of care were breached. Depending on the case specifics, we consult professionals like surgical specialists, obstetricians, radiologists, emergency medicine physicians, pharmacologists, rehab nurses, and other relevant experts. They help identify clear acts of negligence through intensive case review.

Proving Causation of Damages

In addition to proving substandard care, we must demonstrate a direct causal link between the medical negligence and the profound injuries sustained by our client. This also requires working with medical experts to illustrate how the patient’s harms logically resulted from the provider’s mistakes.

Assessing Financial Losses

Finally, our team thoroughly calculates both economic and non-economic damages warranted in the case. This includes all past and future medical costs, lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, and other losses caused by the life-altering injuries that the medical negligence inflicted.

We invest extensive time and resources into proving malpractice liability and damages owed to our injured clients. Our thorough approach has helped secure millions for clients in verdicts and settlements nationwide.

Damages Available in Medical Negligence Lawsuits

Money recovered after medical errors cannot erase what happened or bring back deceased loved ones. But financial compensation can improve quality of life by covering:

Economic Damages
  • Medical bills - past & future
  • Rehabilitation services
  • In-home nursing care
  • Special medical equipment
  • Loss of income and earning capacity
Non-Economic Damages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Emotional distress
Wrongful Death Damages
  • Loss of companionship damages
  • Loss of guidance, support and nurture

While no amount of money can negate human losses, financial recovery eases the economic toll. Our experienced lawyers have helped injured clients recover millions combined in verdicts and settlements nationwide.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)Who can be sued for medical malpractice?

Most lawsuits involve negligent doctors (in any specialty) who harm patients by breaching the standard of care. But other healthcare providers may also commit negligence by:

  • Nurses and nursing staff
  • Hospitals/health systems
  • Medical clinics and urgent care centers
  • Imaging and lab testing facilities
  • Ambulance/EMTs
  • Skilled nursing/rehab facilities
  • Pharmacies and druggists
How much does it cost to hire a medical malpractice lawyer?

Nothing, unless we are successful in recovering damages on your behalf. We advance all case costs needed, and our contingency fee only comes from funds recovered for you. So, you owe us nothing out-of-pocket.

What is the statute of limitations for filing malpractice lawsuits in CA?

California law generally gives patients one year to file medical negligence lawsuits from the date of injury (or from the point malpractice should have reasonably been discovered). For children harmed before age 6, they maintain the right to file until age 8. In certain rare cases, there are reasons to extend the filing deadline. Consult with our lawyers to ensure timely action.

Can I file a malpractice claim even if I signed consent forms?

Yes. Signing standard consent forms does not prevent claims. Consent merely gives approval for the expected risks of procedures. But if an unexpected mistake is made constituting negligence, consent forms will not shield the doctor or hospital from liability if you are severely harmed.

Can I recover damages if a loved one died from medical negligence?

Absolutely. The surviving family and next of kin have legal grounds for a wrongful death medical malpractice lawsuit when negligence leads to the loss of their loved one’s life. Damages center around loss of companionship and financial/guidance support the deceased would have otherwise provided.
