Steps to Medical Malpractice

On Behalf of | Apr 19, 2019 | Medical Malpractice

Imagine sitting in the same doctor’s office over and over again lamenting about the same symptoms and never getting the right answers. Imagine waiting for your loved one to get out of surgery. It is taking longer than expected. The doctor eventually comes out and suggests that there were some complications but all is well. Your family is in recovery but still in so much pain. You then discover that the doctor made decisions and did extra work with no consent from the patient or the family members of the patient. Imagine getting prescribed a certain drug, taking the drug, then having to go to the emergency room because of a reaction to the drug. Or, worse, you end up in more pain because the medicine is not working. What do you do in these scenarios? How do you reconcile all the pain and medical turmoil?

You reach out to medical malpractice attorneys in California at Licata & Yeremenko, A Professional Law Corporation. Medical Malpractice is a very special kind of lawsuit. It requires experience, patience, skill, and perseverance. Determining whether or not you have a medical malpractice case can be challenging. We like to think that when we enter a doctor’s office or hospital that we are getting treated with the normal standard of care. We also like to assume that our medical caretakers have a full understanding of their job and how to catch errors. Unfortunately, this just isn’t the case. Medical malpractice is a multi-billion dollar business. Doctors, medical staff, and hospitals know that mistakes can and will happen. They specifically purchase medical malpractice insurance to cover those mistakes. California medical malpractice insurance pays out about $260,668,400 in 2017. This is an increase from 2016.

Social trends are showing medical malpractice is decreasing, but the payouts are increasing. More and more attorneys are taking fewer cases, but the cases they do have big winnings. Attorneys are reluctant to take medical malpractice cases because of the commitment of work with an unknown outcome. California medical malpractice lawyers at Licata & Yeremenko, A Professional Law Corporation do not shy away from the hard cases. We do not shy away from the complicated issues of your case. Here are some common cases that we deal with for medical malpractice:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Breach of confidentiality
  • Lack of consent
  • Prescription drug errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Birth injuries

These cases prove that the doctor, medical staff, and facility were negligent in their standard of care. They were negligent to the point that it harmed you. The purpose of medical malpractice is to claim justice for the damages you incurred.
