San Francisco Medical Malpractice Attorney
Personal Injury Lawyer in San Francisco
Doctors are humans who can make mistakes just like anyone else. Unfortunately, when a doctor makes a negligent or reckless mistake, this is an act of professional misconduct that cannot be left unaddressed. If you or your loved one was a victim of medical malpractice, our San Francisco personal injury attorneys stand ready to represent you and pursue any damages that can help right the wrongs that have been done to you.
Holding Professionals Accountable for Misconduct
When you are treated by a medical provider, you go to him or her with the expectation that your health is in the hands of a qualified, educated, and certified professional. The medical professional's responsibility to the patient is legally referred to as a "duty of care," and is essentially a type of contractual relationship. A professional medical provider will be expected to provide you with medical care that is in agreement with professional standards, practices, and ethics.
Medical malpractice can occur in many ways, and our firm can be of assistance in a wide range of claims, including those pertaining to the following:
- Emergency room errors
- Surgical errors
- Anesthesia errors
- Failure to diagnose disease or illness
- Failure to diagnose in proper amount of time
- Failure to prescribe correct medication or correct amount of medication
- Failure to treat illness, disease, or injury according to standards
- Birthing injuries resulting to catastrophic or fatal injuries to child or mother
Although acts of medical malpractice are generally inexcusable, hundreds of thousands of cases of medical errors are still reported every year. California laws require that victims of medical malpractice must notify a medical professional before taking legal action. We can help guide you through the process of pre-filing a claim as well as representing you through negotiation or litigation of your case.
