Hospital negligence occurs when a medical professional, healthcare provider or facility breaches their duty of care by acting in a way that no reasonable professional would under the same circumstances. Some examples include:
- Misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose serious conditions
- Surgical mistakes and errors
- Anesthesia errors
- Birth injuries to mother or baby
- Medication errors and overdoses
- Preventable infections
- Delayed treatment
These kinds of errors can lead to catastrophic injury, permanent disability, worsened prognosis or even death.
If it can be established that your doctor, nurse, technician, hospital or other provider acted negligently, resulting in harm, then there may be grounds to pursue a malpractice claim and receive compensation. An experienced Los Banos medical malpractice lawyer can help investigate what went wrong and build a strong case on your behalf.Major Hospitals Serving Los Banos & Merced County

The value of a med mal case depends on the severity of injury/illness caused, the duration of additional treatment needed, the amount of pain/suffering inflicted, lost income and other damages. Experienced lawyers determine liability and form a damages demand during settlements or trials. Cases can be worth anywhere from thousands to millions.How much does hiring a lawyer cost?
