Medical Malpractice

California Medical Malpractice Attorney

Medical malpractice is the failure of a medical professional to perform his or her duties to an adequate level of care resulting in damages to patients. This can apply to the following:

  • Physicians
  • Dentists
  • Psychiatrists
  • Nurses
  • Chiropractors
  • Pharmacists
  • Health care providers

Medical malpractice can range from a surgeon operating on the wrong organ, to a pharmacist filling a prescription with the wrong drug. It takes an attorney who has a full understanding of medical matters to penetrate the medical jargon and record keeping in order to bring blunders to the light of day.

Medical malpractice is rampant in our clinics, hospitals, and health care facilities. It has been reported that 1.3 million people are hurt annually by medication errors alone, and 98,000 others may die from other medical mistakes. This is more than the amount of individuals dying from AIDs, auto accidents, and breast cancer combined. Still, medical associations complain that lawyers are harassing them and that their malpractice insurance premiums are too high.

Medication Errors

Medication errors, while they can be of mild significance in less serious cases, may tragically result in negative reactions and even death. Brain damage, heart attack, loss of cognitive function, and organ failure are just some of the effects that can result from this kind of medical malpractice.

Some of the ways in which medical errors can occur include the following:

  • Prescribing or administering the wrong medication
  • Prescribing or administering a medication which the medical professional should have known would cause an allergic reaction or react badly with other medications being taken
  • Administering too high or too low a dosage
  • Manufacturing, marketing, or selling a drug with dangerous side effects without providing sufficient warning of the hazards involved

A California medical malpractice lawyer can review your case and help to determine who is the most appropriate individual or organizations to name in a medical malpractice suit. This will depend on whether the error was made by your doctor, hospital staff, pharmacist, or psychiatrist. In some cases, the pharmaceutical firm could be held liable when a drug proves to have side effects that were not discovered when it was put on the market, or side effects that were known but not revealed.
