Overview of Medical Malpractice Cases
Injured by a negligent medical professional?
Medical malpractice refers to the injuries or deaths caused to patients through the negligent care and treatment by health care providers who act or fail to act in a manner that is below the standard of care for health care providers. Medical malpractice can cause injury to a fetus which can result in permanent injury to the child. Generally, some type of medical error or deviation from the accepted standards of care form the basis of a malpractice claim or lawsuit. Any health care professional can commit medical malpractice, including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, surgeons, anesthesiologists, therapists, dentists, psychologists, psychiatrists, chiropractors, hospitals, or any medical specialist.
The California Statute of Limitations for medical negligence actions found in the California Code of Civil Procedure Section 340.5 provides the time limits within which a lawsuit must be filed against a health care provider in order to protect and preserve the legal rights of the malpractice victim or their family members. That is why it is advisable for a malpractice victim or their family members to seek legal advice immediately after malpractice is reasonably suspected.
When any type of medical malpractice occurs, you should get the legal advice of an attorney who handles these types of cases and do so in a timely manner. Malpractice can include failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis, surgical errors, pharmacy errors, errors made by nursing staff, lab errors, birth injuries, infections including MRSA and any other type of negligence. Those responsible for the negligence may be liable for damages.
