Medical Malpractice Takes Many Forms
A malpractice lawsuit requires lasting harm and identifiable negligence. Examples of medical malpractice include:
- Emergency room mistakes
- Surgery and anesthesia errors
- Failure to diagnose cancer or heart attack
- Misdiagnosis leading to harmful treatment
- Birth injuries
- Medication errors such as the wrong drug or wrong dose
There can oftentimes be multiple at-fault parties. The doctor or medical provider can be the negligent party. Hospitals, parent companies or umbrella organizations can be held responsible for your injuries as well. The key is proving that they deviated from standard procedure, which directly resulted in injury or death.
Compensation In Medical Malpractice Cases
In a California medical negligence injury lawsuit, there are various benefits and means of compensation that may be awarded under California medical malpractice liability law. Each case is unique regarding what damages may be obtained by the victims and their families.
Possible compensation includes the costs of medical intervention, future medical costs such as physical rehabilitation or medication, current and future medical costs), lost wages, future lost earnings, disability or disfigurement, pain and suffering, and diminished quality of life.
Regardless of who or what caused your injuries, working with an experienced medical malpractice attorney will ensure that your rights are protected, all liable parties are identified, and you get the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to.
Mr. Payne will negotiate with the liable parties’ insurance company on your behalf. If a settlement cannot be reached, he will take your case to trial to ensure that you get the benefits and compensation you are entitled to.
