Common Examples of Medical Malpractice

Some examples of medical negligence in Gardena resulting in medical malpractice cases include:

  • Failure to accurately diagnose conditions like strokes, heart attacks, infections, or cancer
  • Surgical mistakes and equipment failures causing severe bleeding or organ damage
  • Anesthesia errors leading to oxygen deprivation, brain damage or death
  • Preventable birth-related injuries to mothers and babies
  • Improper administration or dosing of medication
  • Neglect of high-risk patients

These catastrophic outcomes can happen when rushed or fatigued hospital staff fail to carefully execute proper protocols. Hospitals also have systemic failures like understaffing, inadequate infection control measures, and insufficient safety monitoring procedures. Multiple departments might contribute to a single patient's injury as well. Identifying all liable parties involves comprehensive legal and medical analysis by accomplished litigators.

Why Choose Us for Your Gardena Hospital Negligence Case

Moseley Collins Law stands ready to advocate for patients and families harmed by medical negligence across southern California, including Gardena and surrounding communities. Over our 40+ year history, our lawyers have evaluated thousands of complex medical malpractice claims nationwide, negotiating and litigating to hold healthcare providers fully accountable.

We devote extensive resources to building the strongest possible cases. Here’s how we make a difference for our Gardena hospital negligence clients:

  • We Thoroughly Investigate Your Claim - Unlike some firms handing off casework to inexperienced staff, Moseley Collins Law’s partners directly lead each investigation into how patients sustained catastrophic damages from medical errors. We gather extensive documentation, order medical records, compile relevant research, identify liable parties, establish causation, quantify harms, and prepare airtight arguments regarding negligence.
  • We Work with Elite Medical Experts - The best medical malpractice cases rely on input from specialists. For every claim, we consult a minimum of four esteemed doctors to provide expert testimony. We work with professionals across specialties including anesthesiology, surgery, emergency medicine, pediatrics, nursing care, pharmacy, rehabilitation, life care planning, and more. Renowned experts deliver credibility while explaining complicated health issues to legal teams, insurance representatives, and juries.
  • We Handle Communication with Insurance Companies - When hospitals commit errors, complicated laws and insurance policies come into play. Facilities and healthcare providers have contacts with insurers to cover some liability claims. As your legal advocates, we handle all correspondence with relevant insurance providers. We submit documentation, negotiate possible settlement offers, and stand firm on getting you or your loved one maximum restitution.
  • We Take Claims to Trial When Necessary - While we always prepare every case as if it is going to trial, the majority of medical negligence claims settle out of court before reaching that phase. However, sometimes getting justice for catastrophically injured clients requires presenting arguments to a judge and jury. Moseley Collins Law has the litigation experience, legal skills, and trial record to secure victories for deserving clients in courtrooms across southern California.
  • We Utilize Several Payment Options - Part of obtaining justice includes getting paid the financial compensation owed by negligent hospitals, doctors, nurses, or other medical staff. We work on contingency, meaning no fees unless your case succeeds. We also advance the costs to develop claims.

Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Malpractice Claims

Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Malpractice ClaimsHow do I know if what happened to me or my loved one qualifies as medical malpractice?

You may have grounds for a malpractice claim if substandard medical care caused significant injuries or death that would have likely been prevented with appropriate treatment. Some examples are misdiagnosed conditions, surgical errors, medication mixups, child delivery mistakes, and more.

Is there a time limit to pursue a medical negligence claim in California?

Yes, state laws restrict the deadline to file medical malpractice lawsuits. In CA, you normally have 1 year from the data of discovery, with exceptions possible. Don’t delay seeking legal guidance.

Will filing a malpractice claim impact my ongoing care at the same hospital or with the same provider?

You have protections under CA laws where filing a claim should not impact receiving further care. However, some patients understandably prefer switching facilities or doctors after errors cause significant damages. This is another complexity that skilled medical malpractice lawyers can help address.

Who pays restitution in a medical negligence claim - the doctor, hospital, or both?

We thoroughly investigate to identify all negligent parties. Compensation can come from multiple liable healthcare providers, facilities, their insurers, and other sources. Our lawyers handle communications to secure you maximum damages.

Is medical negligence restitution taxable income?

Typically no, funds awarded from medical malpractice lawsuits do not count as taxable income under current IRS guidelines. Experienced legal teams ensure compensation structured to protect your continued eligibility for necessary public resources like Medicare.
