Hospital Negligence Leads to Lifelong Injuries

Hospital Negligence Leads to Lifelong Injuries

Hospitals play a crucial role in public health, but also account for thousands of cases of preventable medical malpractice every year. From California’s Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD), some ways in-patient hospital stays result in negligence include:

  • Surgical errors: Botched procedures, unneeded surgeries, mistakes during surgery leading to complications
  • Misdiagnosis: Failure to accurately diagnose the illness or injury
  • Childbirth injuries: Errors during labor/delivery causing harm to mother or baby
  • Improper medication: Wrong drug, incorrect dose, adverse drug reactions, medication errors
  • Discharge too soon: Releasing a patient prematurely
  • Failure to monitor: Not adequately observing patients leads to emergencies

These seemingly small mistakes lead to major injury or even death in thousands per year. When hospitals fail to uphold reasonable safety processes and performance standards, patients suffer.

If you or someone close to you experienced harm under a Marin County hospital’s care, you may have cause to pursue financial compensation and justice by taking legal action. The hospital negligence lawyers at Moseley Collins Law can analyze the events surrounding your case to help determine fault and liability.

Injuries Resulting from Medical Negligence

No two medical malpractice cases are exactly alike. However, some of the most severe injuries we often see resulting from healthcare provider negligence include:

  • Brain damage
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Amputation of limbs
  • Severe burns
  • Surgical instruments left inside patients after surgery
  • Birth injuries resulting in cerebral palsy or permanent disability
  • Life-threatening infections
  • Paralysis
  • Internal bleeding
  • Wrongful death

The processes behind investigating, litigating, and settling these complex cases call for specific medical understanding paired with legal expertise. The lawyers at Moseley Collins Law possess both skill sets. Over our 40+ year history, we have handled medical malpractice cases resulting in virtually every type of severe or fatal injury imaginable. Our extensive experience allows us to anticipate challenges with proving liability, negligence, and causation tied to substandard healthcare.

Elements for a Medical Malpractice Claim

In their simplest form, medical malpractice cases must clearly establish:

  • A provider-patient relationship creating a legal duty of care
  • The healthcare provider violated said duty through acts of negligence
  • The patient suffered tangible harm
  • Proof that the harm resulted directly due to negligence

However, given the technical intricacies of patient care and human health overall, demonstrating these points requires precise execution. We work with independent specialists early on to substantiate merits.

The Medical Review Process: Establishing Validity First

Medical malpractice laws recognize healthcare providers must often make split decisions with patients’ well being riding on the line. This makes allegations of negligence extremely serious. Rather than quickly filing lawsuits and making public claims, we invest extensive effort prior to ever setting legal proceedings in motion.

For each potential client’s circumstances, we coordinate advanced medical opinion from at least four independent specialists to scrutinize every detail of what occurred. These medical experts lend their unbiased perspective on whether acceptable standards were breached resulting in preventable harm.

We also consult with financial analysts to project the true costs patients may now face from lost wages, heath care costs, household contributions, and other financial damages tied to newly acquired disabilities. Patients and grieving family members want to know what really went wrong. Our medical review panel leaves no stone unturned while searching for the truth.

Moseley Collins Law offers representation with no out-of-pocket expenses required from clients. Our iconoclastic fee structure means we only earn payment if able to recover damages for you.
