Filing a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit in Rio Vista and Solano County

Filing a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit in Rio Vista and Solano County

Medical malpractice cases demand adherence to strict California statutes of limitations defining required timeframes for filing lawsuits after incidents of negligence.

In general there are two deadlines Rio Vista plaintiffs must meet:

  • Notice of Intent to Sue: Within 90 days of discovering an injury was caused by medical negligence, your lawyer must file a Notice of Intent to Sue with the doctor or hospital. This notice gives them 90 days to respond before allowing a lawsuit.
  • Filing a Complaint: If no settlement is reached after the notice, the statute of limitations allows 1 year from the incident date or discovery of negligence for your lawyer to formally file a lawsuit complaint. Exceeding this deadline forfeits your rights to legal recovery.

However, state laws include exceptions that extend or "toll" the statute of limitations deadlines under certain conditions - such as plaintiffs remaining under the care of negligent health providers beyond the incident date.

Given varying statutes and numerous exceptions, having an experienced medical malpractice lawyer on your side is imperative for Rio Vista claimants hoping to secure their full entitlement to compensation in the limited timeframe allowed.

Specializing in Catastrophic Injury Medical Malpractice Cases

Hospitals throughout Solano County see thousands of patients every year, and errors inevitably happen during some treatments leading to serious harm. Yet medical malpractice litigation remains extremely uncommon, given the complexity, costs and vigorous defense tactics aimed at protecting reputations and avoiding large payouts.

In fact, most lawyers turn down 99.9% of requests to pursue medical negligence complaints. But over four decades, Moseley Collins Law has developed highly-specialized skills at overcoming daunting legal and medical barriers to successfully resolving even the toughest hospital injury cases involving:

  • Brain damage
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Severe infection
  • Stroke
  • Amputation
  • Grief following wrongful death

Our unwavering commitment gives hope to distraught Rio Vista families struggling in the aftermath of medical errors when other firms balk at the challenges of establishing negligence - even with stacked odds and endless excuses deployed by hospital defense lawyers. We independently gather all salient records, hire multiple medical experts to pinpoint breaches in standards of care and build an ironclad argument about what should have been done to prevent catastrophic outcomes for patients.

And unlike TV ads boasting about legal victories for clients, we do not use made up testimonials but have hundreds of authentic 5-star client reviews that speak to our dedication. While past results don’t guarantee future outcomes, our proven history recovering millions in verdicts and settlements demonstrates the ability to successfully stand up to healthcare institutions and fight for real accountability even in the most heartbreaking, emotionally-charged medical malpractice cases involving serious injury or death of loved ones.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) What does proving medical malpractice require?

You must show a healthcare professional-patient relationship existed that established a duty of care which was then breached through substandard treatment falling below accepted medical practice, and this breach directly caused significant injuries.

What damages can I recover in a Rio Vista medical negligence lawsuit?

Compensation can address medical costs, lost wages, loss of future earnings, rehabilitation, permanent disabilities, pain/suffering and more based on the unique losses you face. Families may also recover wrongful death damages.

How much is my case worth?

Every case is different. The ultimate value depends on factors like available insurance coverage, case expenses, proving liability and the full scope of losses involved.

How much money will hiring your lawyers cost me upfront?

$0. We offer 100% free consultations, accept cases on contingency allowing fees/costs to come from settlements, and work to reach agreements or finance litigation so clients don't pay out of pocket.

What if I'm unhappy with a settlement offer?

We only accept settlement offers our clients agree to. And we fully prepare every case for trial, showing the opposition we have the evidence and willpower to convince juries to deliver verdicts far exceeding unjust proposals. Going to court always risks getting nothing, but also holds potential for millions more in damages only a jury can award. We help analyze options so clients make informed decisions about final settlement vs. litigation.
