Understanding Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is an incredibly complex area of law that impacts patients and medical professionals alike. When individuals believe they have received inadequate medical care, suffered injuries, or lost a loved one due to negligence, they may have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit.

What Constitutes Medical Malpractice?

What Constitutes Medical Malpractice?

For a medical malpractice claim to be valid, the patient and legal team must prove a few key components:

  • Duty of Care - Medical providers have a legally required duty of care to adhere to reasonable professional and safety standards when treating patients. This ensures patients are not placed under undue risk of harm.
  • Breach of Duty - The patient must prove through expert testimony and clinical evidence that the provider breached their duty of care. Examples include surgical errors, medication mix ups, missed diagnoses due to inadequate testing, etc.
  • Injury Caused by Negligence - There must be direct causation between the breach of duty and resulting injury or harm such as added medical complications, disability, loss of wages, or death of the patient.
  • Measurable Damages - Quantifiable economic and non-economic damages stemming from physical, mental, and emotional distress both presently and into the future. This includes rehabilitation costs, loss of quality of life, and potential loss of income.
Common Types of Medical Malpractice

While technical standards of care vary greatly across healthcare, common high-risk situations that often lead to medical malpractice include:

  • Birth Injuries - Errors by doctors and nurses during labor and delivery can inflict devastating harm to both mothers and infants.
  • Surgical Mistakes - From operating on the wrong site to leaving foreign objects inside patients after surgery.
  • Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis - Failure to order proper tests or correctly interpret symptoms and diagnostic results.
  • Medication Errors - Administering the wrong type or dose of medications leading to injury.

Proving liability in a medical malpractice claim involves in-depth investigation, trained medical experts, and complex litigation. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer can help patients and families understand their rights and navigate the legal system for the best possible outcome following negligence.

How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases

How We Investigate Medical Malpractice Cases

Successfully proving medical malpractice and securing rightful compensation for patients requires meticulous investigation and preparation by a skilled team. Here is an inside look at how our firm thoroughly examines negligence cases and constructs claims.

Comprehensive Review of Medical Records

The very first step our lawyers take is requesting and poring through every single page of a client’s relevant medical records. This includes files from doctors, hospitals, clinics, testing facilities and pharmacies involved in the patient’s care. Piecing together timelines, documentation irregularities and consistency across providers reveals areas requiring deeper inspection.

Obtaining Independent Medical Opinions

Next, we coordinate expert case review by doctors intimately familiar with standards of care for the issues involved. For example, in cases of surgical error we retain board certified surgeons from that specialty to assess technique, protocol and instrumentation use. These medical experts help identify precisely how care quality breached duty through ignorance, poor execution, lack of safety measures or negligence. Their testimony stands as critical proof of substandard practices.

Assessing the Full Impact of Patient Suffering

In addition to building the liability argument, our staff works directly with clients to capture details on how the malpractice has disrupted their lives physically, emotionally and economically. Quantifying quality of life loss, specific disabilities impacting work capacity, mental anguish and more enables our legal team to seek fair damages.

Exploring Potential Long-Term Effects

We retain medical specialists to provide analysis and projections on anticipated future consequences of injuries sustained. For severely disabling conditions, a lifetime of medical treatment, homecare assistance and loss of income earning capacity must be accounted for when seeking recovery.

The end goal is constructing an ironclad set of arguments regarding standard of care breaches, health repercussions, and economic impacts stemming from the identified medical negligence. This rigorous investigative work ensures patients and grieving families receive optimal compensation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions1. Do I need to pay any fees upfront to start a medical malpractice claim?

No. We handle all medical negligence cases strictly on contingency requiring no upfront payments whatsoever. Unless we successfully resolve your case through settlement or trial verdict, you owe nothing for our legal services.

2. Will filing a malpractice claim hurt the doctor’s reputation?

Simply opening an investigation does not necessarily harm the physician’s standing. However, if we file a formal complaint documenting clear negligence that caused catastrophic injury, this record can help prevent future patient harm. Protecting others from inadequate care is crucial.

3. How long do I have to file a medical malpractice lawsuit in California?

In most cases you have just 1 year from the date of injury to take legal action. There are exceptions if substantial evidence was discovered later, but do not delay seeking counsel as timing is critical. We work quickly to evaluate cases within limitations periods.

4. Can I recover money damages if a loved one died due to medical negligence?

Absolutely. While no amount of money makes up for losing a loved one, seeking compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit is imperative. Funds can help pay for grief counseling, burial costs, lost future earnings and income that would have benefited the family.

5. Will my malpractice case go to trial?

While we thoroughly prepare every case in the event a trial is necessary, the vast majority settle beforehand. We work closely with defending parties to reach equitable settlements, but are fully ready to go to court if fair offers are not made. Our record of multi-million verdicts and settlements drive serious negotiations.
