An Overview of Medical Malpractices Claims in California

Medical malpractice is a legal cause of action that arises when a patient is harmed due to substandard care. Unfortunately, medical malpractice remains a serious public safety problem in the United States. Some studies put medical errors as the third leading cause of death nationwide. That being said, a poor patient outcome is not necessarily medical malpractice. To bring a successful medical malpractice claim in California, a claimant must prove each of the following four things: 

  • A legally recognized doctor-patient relationship existed; 
  • The patient received negligent (substandard) care from the provider; 
  • Actual damages were suffered by the patient; and
  • The negligent (substandard care) was the cause of patient harm.  

Medical malpractice can take a wide range of different forms. Some common examples include delayed diagnosis, doctor misdiagnosis, surgical mistakes, prescription drug errors, and hospital-based infections. As these are among the most complex and specialized types of legal cases, expert witness testimony is often a key part of a medical malpractice claim. 

Recovering Compensation for Medical Negligence

In California, victims of medical negligence have the right to pursue financial compensation for the full extent of their damages, including for both economic and non-economic damages. Sadly, medical malpractice insurers fight aggressively to resolve these cases for less. We can help. Our Los Angeles medical malpractice attorneys go above and beyond to help patients and families maximize their financial recovery, including for: 

  • Emergency room treatment; 
  • Hospital bills and other medical expenses;

  • Pain and suffering & emotional anguish; 
  • Scarring, disfigurement, disability, or impairment; and
  • Wrongful death of a close family member.

Recovering the Damages You Deserve

If someone else is to blame for your injuries, you have the right to seek compensation for the full amount of damages you've suffered. These damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, as well as pain and suffering. You must bring forth your claim within one year of the accident date. Not filing your case within one year will bar you from recovery.
