Did a doctor or other health care provider commit medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or other health care provider fails to exercise the normal degree of skill, knowledge and care in the diagnosis and treatment of the patient resulting in injury or even death. Has this happened to you or a loved one? If so, you may be entitled to monetary damages.
The type of full monetary recovery that we seek for our medical malpractice clients can include non-economic damages such as physical pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, disfigurement, physical impairment, inconvenience, grief, anxiety, humiliation and emotional distress (the law of California caps non-economic damages at $250,000) and economic damages (which are not capped, and can reach into the multi-millions of dollars, depending on the facts) including past, present and future medical expenses and care, and past, present and future loss of earnings and loss of earnings capacity. Additionally, if the medical malpractice caused a wrongful death there are other damages awardable.
If the victim of medical malpractice is married, the spouse may have a claim for loss of consortium, that is, loss of your love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection, society, moral support and sexual relations (or the ability to have children).
Very often there is insurance covering medical negligence and it has been said that without an attorney fighting for you insurance companies will do their best to take advantage of you or your loved one. They may try to fight over fault, say your or your loved one's medical bills are outrageous and not recoverable, deny loss of earnings and try not to give money for pain and suffering and diminishment of life style. Let's face it, the insurance companies are not in the business of giving away money. They have trained claims adjusters and attorneys trying to pay nothing, or as little as possible.
