Understanding Medical Negligence

Medical professionals in Rancho Cordova hospitals, clinics, and private practices have a solemn duty under oath to provide competent, safe, and reasonable healthcare. When a healthcare provider breaches this duty through negligent actions or omissions, failing to meet the community medical standard, and directly causing injury or death, this constitutes medical malpractice.

Some examples of potential medical negligence include:

  • Misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose serious illnesses like cancer or infections
  • Surgical errors such as operating on the wrong body part
  • Failure to recognize conditions requiring critical intervention
  • Medication errors with incorrect drugs or dosages
  • Severe birth injuries due to poor obstetric management
  • Needless procedures or surgeries only performed for financial gain

The effects of medical negligence can be severe and lifelong. Our dedicated team can investigate what went wrong in your case, build maximum strength claims, and relentlessly pursue the maximum compensation you deserve.

FAQs About Medical Malpractice Cases

FAQs About Medical Malpractice Cases

Medical negligence situations raise many questions surrounding proper next steps and legal intricacies. Our lawyers regularly address common concerns of injured patients and grieving loved ones when reviewing incidents and options. Some frequent medical malpractice questions we receive include:

How Do I Know For Sure If What Happened Qualifies As Malpractice?

Not every poor medical outcome necessarily constitutes provable malpractice. Sometimes recognized complications can occur even with proper healthcare actions taken. However, situations like misdiagnosis of a serious condition, surgical errors injuring a patient, or medication mix-ups point toward likely negligence. Getting an independent review of all records along with medical expert analysis determines if acceptable standards were breached.

If There Was Malpractice, What Types Of Compensation Might I Recover?

In cases where healthcare providers are found liable for medical negligence leading to injury or death, the law allows compensation for associated losses. Some categories of damages may include medical expenses, lost income, reduced future earnings, pain/suffering, and loss of normal enjoyment of life. Where applicable, surviving family members may claim damages.

Could My Case Potentially Settle Before Going To Trial?

Yes, we vigorously prepare every client’s case to place maximum pressure on defendants, which may motivate settlements pre-trial when strong evidence demonstrates their liability. If reasonable offers covering case merits aren’t received, we fully prepare for courtroom trials and won’t hesitate to aggressively advocate before juries to recover owed compensation.

What Options Exist If Malpractice Occurred At A VA Or Military Hospital?

We have specific experience successfully handling VA hospital negligence and malpractice cases against military medical facilities, understanding unique rules where government sovereign immunity is involved. Don’t assume no recourse exists if harmed under VA or armed services care - call us to explore options.

How Long After A Medical Injury Do I Have To File A Lawsuit?

Every state has strict statutes of limitations dictating the deadline windows for filing medical negligence lawsuits. These vary by state and case specifics. It is critical injury victims don’t assume they have abundant time, as the clock starts ticking from the date of injury-causing incidents. We advise contacting us promptly so options don’t expire.
