Our dedicated medical malpractice lawyers offer knowledgeable legal assistance to California residents who suffered harm.

Common Causes of Patient Harm in Mountain House Hospitals

While no medical facility intends harm, issues like understaffing, fatigue, overloaded schedules, inadequate training, or basic negligence can lead to regrettable injury or loss of life. Our firm has seen many area cases stemming from:

  • Emergency room misdiagnosis/delayed diagnosis
  • Anesthesia errors
  • OBGYN delivery mistakes
  • Medication overdoses or improper prescriptions
  • Unnecessary procedures
  • Surgical errors (operating on wrong area of body, leaving tools inside patients, etc.)
  • Failure to detect cancer diagnoses
  • Ignored patient complaints of worsening pain or symptoms
  • Improper medical device usage

No amount of money can make up for drastically changed quality of life after a preventable mistake leaves someone paralyzed or leads to a loved one’s wrongful death. But compensation provides affected individuals/families resources for treatments, home health care, loss of work and wages, adapted transportation and housing, and other necessities now compromised.

Examples of Medical Malpractice

While most physicians meet the standard of care, serious mistakes happen which can drastically impact patients. When substandard medical care causes injury or death, patients may have grounds for a malpractice lawsuit.

If you or someone close suffered significant injury after medical treatment from issues like:

  • Misdiagnosis/delayed diagnosis
  • Medication errors
  • Surgery mistakes
  • Childbirth complications
  • Failure to detect cancer/disease
  • Improper medical device usage

Then what occurred may constitute medical negligence for which you may be entitled compensation. Those harmed by such incidents should immediately reach out to our malpractice law firm for a free consultation on seeking damages.

Damages Available in Medical Malpractice Cases

When an injured victim pursues a medical malpractice lawsuit, they aim to recover compensation known legally as “damages”. These damages attempt to make up for various losses and impacts suffered due to a healthcare provider breaching their duty of care either through negligence, errors, or failure to meet accepted medical standards.

Economic Damages

Economic damages in malpractice seek to reimburse tangible monetary costs tied directly to the incident, including:

Medical Expenses

Both past and future medical costs like hospital/doctor bills, medications, surgeries, physical therapy, nursing care, specialized equipment, and more.

Lost Wages

Reimbursement for past and future ability to work and earn income. This factors in how injuries reduce or eliminate work capacity. Damages often cover projected earnings lost over a lifetime.

Loss of Earning Capacity

Even if victims can return to work with disabilities, their ability to ever earn or achieve the same levels as before gets hampered. These projected lost opportunities warrant compensation.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages attempt to make up for intangible losses and suffering such as:

Pain and Suffering

Seeking reasonable compensation for physical discomfort, emotional trauma, mental anguish, and distress experienced. Typically scales based on degree of harm and losses inflicted.

Loss of Enjoyment of Life

Damages aiming to compensate loss of participation in activities, hobbies or experiences which previously brought joy before incident. Reduced mobility, cognition and altered lifestyles factors in.

Let our experienced medical malpractice lawyers fully investigate your incident to build the strongest case establishing provider liability and quantifying ALL impacts warranting maximum compensation under state laws. Contact us for a free consultation.
