Does Doctor Know Best?

On Behalf of | Aug 31, 2018 | Medical Malpractice

There are at least three major hospitals in California. Being admitted to a hospital can be a very scary experience. These experiences can lead to surgeries, big, small, invasive or superficial, and sometimes life-altering. Whether we are a patient or a loved one of a patient, we hold doctors to a higher standard. We do this because we know what is at risk, our lives.

Doctors take an oath to ensure that they do everything they can to make us feel better. But what if, after all the surgeries or physical therapy, we still don’t feel well? What if we still don’t feel whole or right? What if the product that our caretakers provide for use malfunctions? What if, due to those malfunctions, our loved one dies?

At Licata & Yeremenko, A Professional Law Corporation, a medical malpractice lawyer in California understands the heartbreak of things not going as planned. We understand that as patients and people there are levels of expectation from our caretakers. There are expectations of the products we consume or are put into us. We understand that when something goes wrong that it isn’t your fault and we are here to help you get justice for whatever pain you are going through. Our experience and expertise can follow your case from state to federal level. We are prepared to take you all the way to victory.

What Is A Personal Injury?

There are three main areas of personal injury: product liability, wrongful death, and malpractice.

  • Product liability: When you have a heart attack it is common for doctors to offer pacemakers to ensure that your heart has some help in case you have another heart attack. As technology grows so do medical devices. We as patients assume that these devices will work 100% of the time. But the truth is that they don’t. This can lead to disastrous results that could conclude with death or permanent damage. If this sounds like something you have been through or a loved one, then please do not hesitate to reach out to our firm. We at Licata & Yeremenko, A Professional Law Corporation are here for you.
  • Wrongful Death: This is a death caused by gross negligence of someone else then you may be entitled to compensation for the emotional and financial loss. Wrongful Death can be filed alongside and independent of a criminal charge. This serious situation needs to be addressed with compassion and precision. Let us help you vindicate the death of your loved one.
  • Malpractice: This is when the professional services you are using fail to perform their duties, commits fraud, or misrepresentations. This broad category can encompass the service of doctors, accountants, lawyers, nurses, and others. Do not be bullied or used by professional services that are meant to serve you. Please reach out to Licata & Yeremenko, A Professional Law Corporation for further help in this area.
