Understanding Medical Negligence

Medical malpractice occurs when a Rancho Palos Verdes health care professional breaches the standard of care when treating a patient. This negligence can take many forms, such as:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a serious illness or condition
  • Surgical errors and mistakes during invasive procedures
  • Birth injuries to mother or baby due to an OBGYN's negligence
  • Medication errors and pharmacy mix-ups
  • Failure to quickly identify and treat infections
  • Discharging patients prematurely without proper follow-up care

These errors may be the result of inadequate training, fatigue, outdated technology, poor communication, or simple human error. Regardless of the cause, patients can suffer greatly from physical harm, extended hospital stays, lost income, diminished quality of life, and mounting medical bills.

At Moseley Collins Law, we have extensive experience investigating negligence at hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices, nursing homes, and other medical facilities in Rancho Palos Verdes and surrounding cities. Our firm will thoroughly examine your case, consult medical experts, establish liability, and pursue maximum compensation for all your losses.

Damages Available in Medical Malpractice Cases

Damages Available in Medical Malpractice Cases

When medical negligence or errors cause preventable injury or death, the at-fault doctor, nurse, hospital, or other health care provider should be held accountable. Medical malpractice victims can pursue legal damages or compensation for losses suffered.

Economic Damages

Economic damages aim to recover measurable, tangible monetary losses from medical malpractice. These can include:

Medical Expenses

All past and projected future medical costs related to treating the injury can be claimed - surgery, hospitalization, drugs, physical therapy, at-home nursing care, specialized equipment like wheelchairs, and more.

Lost Income

Lost wages to date and loss of future earning capacity are claimable if the injury reduced what someone can work and earn. Damages often cover reduced pensions or social security payments too.

Other Financial Losses

Past and future childcare costs, property losses, travel costs related to treatment, etc. may be recovered too. An experienced lawyer will identify all provable damages.

Noneconomic Damages

Noneconomic damages compensate for intangible losses that profoundly reduce quality of life. These can include physical and emotional pain and suffering, loss of companionship or consortium for a spouse, permanent disability or disfigurement, loss of reproductive ability, and more.

Calculating these highly subjective damages involves legal expertise - especially when the impacts are devastating or permanent, like quadriplegia. Lawyers may retain economists and other experts to validate claims. While no amount of money can make up for tragedy, securing adequate compensation is essential to cover major needs not paid by health insurance, Medicare, etc.

Punitive Damages

In rare cases where negligence is extreme, punitive damages may be awarded to punish wrongdoers. These are meant solely to penalize defendants, not further compensate plaintiffs. Awards are larger legal victories benefiting society by deterring similar misconduct.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions1. How do I know if what happened was really malpractice?

You may suspect medical malpractice if you or your loved one suffered an unexpected injury, illness got worse due to delayed treatment, or a routine procedure had a negative outcome. Our lawyers conduct an extensive investigation to determine if acceptable standards were breached.

2. Will pursuing a claim negatively impact my ongoing care at the hospital?

No, we handle all contacts with the hospital and insurance companies for you. Focus on healing while we build your case. Your rights are protected.

3. What compensation may I recover in a medical malpractice case?

You may recover damages for medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, and other losses. Experienced lawyers maximize compensation.

4. What if a doctor made a judgment call I disagree with?

Just disagreeing with a doctor’s course of treatment does not prove malpractice. However, if treatment significantly deviates from reasonable standards, you may have a valid claim.

5. Am I guaranteed money if I pursue a malpractice claim?

There are no guarantees in law, but our lawyers thoroughly investigate liability and have a proven record of significant recoveries for clients.
