Detailed Investigation Into What Went Wrong After Medical Errors

Successfully receiving compensation for clients after devastating injuries caused by malpractice hinges on dedicated investigation and thorough preparation. The experienced California medical malpractice lawyers at Moseley Collins Law rigorously examine what transpired in substandard medical treatment leading to long-term damages for victims.

We understand that just because a medical outcome is catastrophic or unexpected does not automatically equal negligence. Risks and complications can happen even when proper protocols are followed. That is why we dig extensively into every aspect of what happens during clients’ medical care. Our goal is to uncover clear breaches of standards – misdiagnosis, oversights, symptom misjudgment and careless acts resulting in disability, permanent injury or wrongful death.

To reveal where things went wrong, lawyers gather all pertinent medical records and documents that give insight into factors like:

  • The patient’s medical history and any pre-existing conditions
  • Progress notes from doctors, nurses, and specialists
  • Lab results, imaging tests, and pathology reports
  • Protocols for administering drugs, surgery, diagnostics, etc.
  • Code blue reports, autopsy findings, and all other documents with details

In addition to the medical chart paper trail, we also conduct exhaustive interviews with family members, hospital staff who may have observed concerning behavior, and other key witnesses. Combined with records, our litigators piece together a timeline of critical decisions showcasing negligence that departed from reasonable standards of care, causing patients grievous injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)I signed consent forms – doesn’t that protect healthcare providers from liability?

Consent forms only advise patients of usual risks and complications – they don’t waive liability from negligence. Reckless errors, carelessness, or findings suggesting unqualified staff are still grounds for malpractice suits.

Do I have a case if no one admitted fault for my complications after surgery?

Not necessarily. Facilities and doctors rarely admit mistakes even when negligence likely caused surgical infections, mistakes during anesthesia, unplanned extended hospitalization, etc. Our lawyers must prove it.

Is there a cap or limit on medical malpractice settlements in California?

No dollar amount caps exist on medical negligence economic or non-economic claims in CA. Jury verdicts and negotiated settlements are based on factors like egregious conduct, strength of evidence, and a victim’s needs.

I’m not sure exactly what kind of lawyer handles hospital & doctor negligence cases.

Medical malpractice lawyers have specialized expertise on acceptable standards of care, bringing lawsuits against healthcare providers, and evaluating complicated records to build strong cases.

What makes your firm equipped to handle my birth injury, misdiagnosis or other malpractice case?

Decades focused entirely on these often complex cases give our seasoned lawyers distinctly sharp skills for determining breaches in care. Plus, our resources to invest in the expert testimony needed to quickly resolve cases advantageously for victims.
