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:
- 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.

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
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.
