Carlsbad Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Doctors and other medical professionals owe their patients a duty of care. Sadly, thousands of people in California are injured by negligent professionals, and many of these patients die. If you believe you have received substandard care, contact Pursley Law Firm. You might have a medical malpractice claim.

These are very complicated cases, and many laws limit the ability of patients and their families to sue. Our Carlsbad medical malpractice lawyer can help you better understand your options.

Examples of Medical Malpractice

Our law firm can hold any medical professional accountable for failing to provide quality care. In California, medical professionals must provide the appropriate level of care as other medical professionals in similar circumstances. This standard does not require perfection. But it does require that doctors and other medical professionals be competent.

We can bring a lawsuit against any of the following:

  • Doctors
  • Dentists
  • Nurses
  • Radiologists
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Pharmacists
  • Physical therapists
  • Chiropractors
  • Psychologists
  • Hospitals
  • Clinics
  • Labs

Examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Diagnostic errors, such as missed or delayed diagnosis or failure to order appropriate diagnostic tests.
  • Surgical errors, including wrong-site surgeries or mistakes that lead to excessive bleeding or organ damage.
  • Anesthesiology errors, such as failing to give enough anesthetic or failing to properly review a patient’s medical history to determine whether anesthesia is appropriate.
  • Failure to secure informed consent before a medical procedure by failing to describe risks and alternatives.
  • Medication errors, including prescribing the wrong medication or the wrong dosage, or dispensing the wrong medication to a patient.
  • Health care-acquired infections, often caused by poor sanitation.

When patients receive inadequate care, they often incur additional medical expenses. For example, a botched surgery could require additional surgeries to fix the problem. These additional surgeries are expensive, and they are only necessary because the original surgeon was negligent.

Medical malpractice can also lead to income loss, pain, embarrassment, and disfigurement. Unfortunately, thousands of people die from medical errors, and their families might have the ability to sue for compensation. Please meet with our Carlsbad medical malpractice lawyer to review.

Do You Have a Case?

Medical malpractice is a complicated area of law. Most patients have no idea what is happening. All they know is that their condition is not improving. But is medical malpractice to blame?

Not everyone who gets sick or dies is the victim of negligent medical care. Some conditions are impossible to treat. Nonetheless, you should meet with a lawyer to review your medical history. Doctors and hospitals rarely fess up to their mistakes. Our legal team can comb through the evidence to determine whether your medical team followed the correct standard of care. If not, then you can sue for compensation when that malpractice injures you.

Contact Us Right Away

Medical malpractice cases require substantial preparation. Our legal team often works with medical experts to better understand what treatment you should have received. California also makes it hard to receive fair compensation. Our state caps non-economic damages—currently, the cap for a non-fatal case is $350,000. The state also has a statute of limitations that prevents you from suing after a certain amount of time.
