Understanding Medical Negligence and Your Right to Take Legal Action

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional fails to provide proper medical treatment or standard of care, resulting in further injury, complications or wrongful death. Some examples of medical negligence include:

  • Misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose serious conditions
  • Surgical errors and mistakes during child delivery
  • Pharmacy prescription errors
  • Failure to monitor patients correctly
  • Delayed emergency treatment
  • Discharging patients prematurely

The experienced medical malpractice lawyers serving Ventura County have seen many incidents of negligence involving conditions such as cancer misdiagnosis, preventable infections, anesthesia errors, inaccurate lab results, and more.

  2. The standard of care was breached when treatment fell below acceptable standards
  3. The patient suffered further damages directly relating to the substandard medical care
  4. Significant damages resulted in disability, loss of income, pain and suffering, and other costs
What are common medical mistakes that are considered malpractice?

Some sadly common incidents we see involve:

  • Surgical errors - Wrong site/side, retained foreign objects, organ perforation
  • Medication errors – Wrong prescriptions, overdoses, dangerous drug interactions
  • Misdiagnosis / Delayed diagnosis - Failures to detect cancer, infections and other serious illnesses

  • Anesthesia mistakes - Improper administration leading to brain injuries

California Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations

California Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations

California medical malpractice law imposes strict deadlines called “statutes of limitation” dictating the legally required timing for injured patients to pursue financial damages through civil litigation or forfeit all rights permanently.

Adults harmed generally have 1 year from officially discovering a provider's medical error to file a malpractice lawsuit. Certain exceptions exist allowing up to 3 additional years if facts surface that key details were actively concealed initially, denying prompt awareness of the negligence as it took place.
