Common Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle

Medical negligence can take countless different forms depending on the healthcare setting and specialty involved. At our firm, we have seen just about every kind of medical error imaginable from doctors, nurses, hospitals, clinics, and facilities across Kern County and the state of California. Some of the more common medical malpractice cases we accept and litigate include:

Misdiagnosis & Failure to Diagnose

One of the top reasons patients pursue medical malpractice claims is a wrong, missed or delayed diagnosis.

Childbirth Injuries & Birth Trauma

Bringing a child into the world should be a time of joy, not tragedy. But hospital errors during labor or delivery can lead to devastating harm to both mother and baby.

Surgical Errors

Even routine operations can go horribly awry when standards of care are not met. Botched surgeries occur far too often, causing severe harm or death to unsuspecting patients.

Nursing Home Abuse & Elder Neglect

Elderly, post-op and vulnerable patients receiving residential care too often suffer harm due to abuse, neglect or mistakes by facilities and staff.
