  • Childbirth injuries - Mistakes during labor or delivery, such as improper use of forceps, can inflict devastating brain damage on the baby.
  • Medication errors - Prescribing or administering the wrong drug or dosage can result in painful side effects, organ failure, coma or death.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)How do I know if malpractice caused my injury?

You may have a strong case if medical care did not follow accepted protocols or if you suffered a rare complication. We consult medical experts during our investigation.

Won’t it be hard to prove the doctor is liable?

It can be, but top lawyers know how to build viable malpractice cases. With sufficient evidence, defendants often settle out of court.

Is there a time limit to file a malpractice claim?

Yes. In California, you normally have one year from the date of injury to file a lawsuit. Act now to preserve your rights.

Will filing a claim impact my ongoing care?

No. Doctors cannot refuse or alter your care because you pursue financial recovery. But we can request your records from an alternate provider if needed.

Can I afford a malpractice lawyer?

Yes. We work on contingency, collecting no fee unless your case succeeds. Maximizing your compensation is our top priority.

What if the doctor tries to blame me for the injury?

Even if patients make choices that increase risk, doctors still must provide reasonable care. Skilled lawyers can overcome such arguments.

How long does a malpractice case take to resolve?

Every case is different, but many settle out of court within 1-2 years. Complex cases resolved by trial often take longer to bring to conclusion.

What types of damages can I claim in my lawsuit?

You may recover damages for medical costs, lost income, pain/suffering and more. Experienced lawyers will thoroughly document all applicable damage areas.

What percentage does the law firm get if I win my case?

Our firm, like most malpractice lawyers, take a percentage - often 30-40% - of the final award as payment. This incentivizes us to maximize your recovery.
