    I am very sorry for your loss. In addition to consulting an experienced medical malpractice attorney, you can, on your own, file a complaint with the California Medical Board. The form can be found on their website at http://www.mbc.ca.gov/consumer/complaint_info.html.

  • A renown Dr. told us that my husband was misdiagnosed and led to blindness in his left eye. What do we need to do now?

    He will not be able to return to work. We really need some help.

    Steven’s Answer

    You should contact an experienced medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible. There are very strict time limits as to when a lawsuit must be filed against a doctor so it is important to act quickly. You should also begin collecting all of the relevant medical records.

    Steven’s Answer

    You should consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney. Not every bad outcome means there was medical malpractice, The evalutaion of a potential medical malpractice case requires a thorough review of the medical records, usualy by both the attorney and a medical expert who the attorney will retain for that purpose. There are very specific time limits within which a medical malpractice case must be filed, failure to file within those time limits will result in the case being barred by the applicable statute of limitations so you should consult an attorney as soon as possible.

    While every surgery has known risks and complications often times injuries do occur as a result of negligence by the doctors, nurses or other health care providers. In order to determine if your injuries occured as a result of negligence it will be necessary for you to consult with an experienced medical malpractice lawyer. You should obtain all of your medical records so the lawyer can review them and perhaps obtain an expert review. There are very specific time limits within which a medical malpractice lawsuit must be brought and failure to file a case within those time limits could result in your case being barred by the applicable statute of limitations. You should consult with an attorney as soon as possible.

  • How long do i have to file malpractice in california

    an infection from a surgery was left untreted and became disabeling 6 months later

    Steven’s Answer

    An infection is a known risk or complication of any surgical procedure and does not by itself prove the doctors or hospital where negligent. In order to have a valid malpractice case your lawyer must be able to prove there was some negligence on the part of the health care providers in diagnosising or treating the infection.. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer would have to review the medical records and probably have them reviewed by an expert. You should obtain all of your medical records than have a consultation with an experienced medical malpractice lawyer .
