Common Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle
  • Misdiagnosis & delayed diagnosis

  • Heart attacks
  • Strokes
  • Cancer
  • Meningitis
  • Appendicitis
  • Diabetic ketoacidosis

Delays worsen prognoses. We help victims get accountability.

Botched Surgeries

Surgeons must adhere to reasonable standards of medical care when operating. However, often surgical teams make mistakes like:

  • Operating on wrong body part
  • Leaving foreign object inside patient after surgery
  • Cutting or puncturing organs
  • Causing infections
  • Utilizing poor surgical technique

Our lawyers use medical experts to prove negligent surgical errors.

Birth Injuries

Botched deliveries often inflict baby and mother with lifelong impairments needing extensive care. Common errors include:

  • Failure to monitor fetal heart rate
  • Improper use of medications or forceps
  • Poor response to umbilical cord issues
  • Failure to perform C-section when necessary

We've recovered millions for families due to birth negligence.

Medication Errors

Medication mistakes represent over 50% of all medical errors, causing grave harm. Our lawyers have seen overdoses, under-doses, and administering wrong medications completely. Hospitals must implement better training and protocols to keep patients safe.

Emergency Room Negligence

Seeking critical help in an ER requires rapid, accurate diagnoses and treatment. However, disorganized, chaotic ERs filled with patients lead staff to make detrimental errors in triage and medical decision-making. Our lawyers hold emergency rooms liable for damaging mistakes.

ICU Mistakes

Intensive care units (ICUs) treat the most vulnerable patients needing advanced life support. Yet complex technology and medications in ICUs also enables more mistakes, often covered up by hospitals. Families may see odd symptoms or behaviors in ICU patients unable to communicate issues themselves. Our lawyers fully investigate suspected ICU negligence.

Proving Medical Negligence

Proving Medical Negligence

Hospital medical malpractice cases require extensive litigation resources and medical expertise to successfully prove. Our accomplished Santa Paula medical malpractice lawyers methodically build strong negligence claims by:

Thoroughly investigating facts.

We extensively gather intricate medical records, hospital policies & procedures, and detailed incident reports to shed light on extent of subpar care. Our nurses then translate complex data for lawyers.

Utilizing medical experts.

To demonstrate medical negligence, patient care must deviate from accepted professional standards. We retain 3-4 independent specialists from key disciplines to assess care gaps.

Recreating timelines.

Meticulous timelines synthesized by our nurses illustrate how poorly coordinated care caused delays, escalation of injuries, and permanent damages.

Confronting deceptive defenses.

Negligent hospital corporations hire teams of manipulative defense lawyers. But our battle-tested litigators counter legal arguments and expert witnesses to undermine bogus defenses.

Through our exhaustive work, families gain clear understanding of how poor hospital decisions impacted loved ones’ wellbeing.

Damages Available in Medical Malpractice

When medical professionals fail to provide an adequate standard of care and harm patients, the impacts can be devastating and lifelong. Medical malpractice victims can pursue legal action to recover "damages" or compensation for losses negligence caused. Damages accounting for a victim’s complete physical, emotional, and financial suffering are imperative for proper justice.

Economic Damages

Economic damages in medical malpractice cover measurable financial losses from healthcare bills, loss of income and benefits, and future care costs tied directly to the malpractice impacts.

Medical Costs

Past and estimated future medical costs to treat initial injuries as well as subsequent complications or conditions stemming from negligent care are included. Costs of medications, therapies, assistive devices, and in-home care can add up over a shortened lifetime.

Lost Income

Additionally, monetary recovery accounts for lost income that would have been earned were it not for newly acquired disabilities reducing ability to work or caused death. Lost employer-provided benefits like health insurance and 401K retirement matching can also be calculated.

Future Care

Court judgments and settlements factor in sizable damages for ongoing treatments and personal assistance the victim requires moving forward due to new limitations from harm inflicted.

Noneconomic Damages

Less quantifiable non-financial losses attributed directly to physical and mental anguish after malpractice events deserve fair redress as well.

Pain and Suffering

The physical pain and mental suffering already endured and expected throughout an injured victim’s lifespan - which may be substantially shortened due to malpractice - commands compensation. Damages account for loss of wellbeing and enjoyment of life activities due to hospital negligence.

Wrongful Death

In fatal malpractice cases, families can recover damages for losing their beloved prematurely. This compensates for losing companionship, guidance, household support and services the deceased provided.

Punitive Damages

If medical negligence is proven especially egregious and careless, additional “punitive” damages further punish and deter such dangerous misconduct.

Experienced medical malpractice lawyers ensure victims receive complete coverage for the full devastation that preventable medical errors caused. Compassionate experts evaluate all present and future costs medical lapses saddle victims’ families with.
