Introduction to Medical Malpractice in Lincoln, CA

Medical procedures, even routine ones, carry inherent risks. However, when a physician or nurse fails to provide an acceptable standard of care, and their negligent actions cause injury or death, the patient becomes the victim of medical malpractice. Hospital negligence leading to medical malpractice can occur in a wide variety of situations, including:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a serious illness or condition
  • Surgical errors and mistakes during medical procedures
  • Improper administration or dosing of medication
  • Failure to monitor patients appropriately post-op
  • Discharging patients prematurely
  • Birth injuries due to obstetrician negligence

Examples of Medical Negligence Lawsuits We Handle

At Moseley Collins Law, our team pursues just compensation for clients who have suffered severe harm due to healthcare provider negligence. We take on complex medical malpractice cases across a spectrum of specialties when substandard medical care leads to catastrophic injury or wrongful death.

Surgical Errors

Botched surgeries resulting from the negligent actions of surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and other OR staff can cause devastating harm. Surgical mistakes we see include organ perforation, incorrect surgery performed, retained foreign objects due to inadequate counts, anesthesia errors, preventable infections, and more. Patients may face permanent disability, addiction, or death.

Misdiagnosis/Delayed Diagnosis

One of the most common forms of medical malpractice involves missed or delayed diagnosis. Providers who fail to order appropriate diagnostic tests or correctly interpret results can allow diseases like cancer to progress unchecked. By the time many patients receive an accurate diagnosis, their prognosis is far worse.

Birth Injuries

When labor and delivery teams fail to adhere to the proper standard of care, oxygen deprivation and other birth trauma can result for the infant. This can cause severe permanent damage like cerebral palsy, seizure disorders, developmental delays and intellectual disability through their life.

Proving Liability in Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Proving Liability in Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Building a strong case in a medical negligence lawsuit requires proving:

  • A provider-patient relationship existed between the defendant healthcare provider(s) and person injured
  • The defendant medical professional breached accepted standards of care
  • This breach directly caused the patient’s injury or death
  • Damages resulted (which can be economic, non-economic, punitive)

Proving breach of an acceptable medical standard is complex. It requires obtaining all pertinent records then having medical experts in relevant fields review them to assess mistakes made.

If our lawyers believe your case has legal merit after a thorough review, we will retain a team of medical specialists spanning different disciplines to analyze your records. They can provide unbiased judgment of where the provider violated standards.

For example, we may have a surgical expert, anesthesiologist, cardiologist, or other relevant practitioners carefully evaluate your medical chronology for gaps showing negligence.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked QuestionsDo I have a case if my loved one passed away because of an undiagnosed condition?

It depends on the specifics, but quite possibly. Failure to diagnose serious illnesses in a timely way commonly leads to medical malpractice. We would need to review all pertinent medical records in detail, create a chronology, then have expert analysis. But wrongful death related to misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis can absolutely be grounds for a case.

What proof is required to demonstrate medical negligence occurred?

You need strong evidence showing the healthcare provider violated the legally accepted standard of care, which then directly caused the injury or death. Favorable judgements rely on expert testimony confirming malpractice through inaccurate diagnoses, surgical errors, medication mistakes - whatever the specifics may be.

Is there a time limit to file a medical negligence lawsuit after an injury?

Yes. In California, plaintiffs generally have one year from the date of discovery to file a claim or you may lose the ability pursue compensation. There are exceptions for children injured by medical negligence though. It is imperative to contact our medical malpractice lawyers as soon as possible after any incident.

Will filing a malpractice claim hurt my relationship with the provider?

Understandably that can be a concern after an injury involving ongoing care. Initiating a case shouldn’t impact your access to medical care, however. We also aim for discretion filing claims when appropriate out of respect for all parties involved. Your health remains the priority.

Who pays compensation in a successful medical negligence case?

Sources of financial compensation depend on the healthcare providers involved but may include the hospital, physicians, nursing staff, anesthesiologists, drug manufacturers, medical device makers, and their insurance companies. Our lawyers fully investigate all liable parties who contributed to the injury through negligence.
