MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

California Medical Malpractice Lawyers Defending the Rights of Medical Malpractice Victims

When we need medical care, we put our trust in doctors and medical staff to care for us. When we are injured by the very people we are supposed to trust, it brings up a wide array of emotions. If you have been injured because of medical malpractice, you likely have many questions and don’t know where to turn. You may be healing from our injuries and unable to work. All the while the medical bills continue to pile up.

 

At Donahue & Horrow LLP, we represent victims of medical malpractice. With over 50 years of collective experience, our firm is focused on pursuing compensation for victims of medical error and malpractice. We combine our years of experience with detailed knowledge of the medical industry. We understand how shocking and stressful these cases can be. We want to take the burden off our clients, so they can focus on healing and living their lives again.

 

A study conducted by John Hopkins University determined that approximately 250,000 people die every year due to medical malpractice. To have a successful claim, our California medical malpractice lawyers will need to prove:

 

  • There was a doctor-patient relationship.
  • The doctor owed a duty of care.
  • The doctor breached this duty of care.
  • The plaintiff suffered damages as a result.

 

To prove liability of the of the doctor, it is necessary to prove that the doctor deviated from the requisite standard of care. The doctor’s behavior will be measured by what a doctor in similar circumstances would have done under similar circumstances.

 

Examples of commonly seen medical malpractices cases includes:

 

  • Misdiagnosis of a medical condition.
  • Delay in diagnosing cancer.
  • Leaving surgical instruments in the body.
  • Operating on the wrong organ.
  • Birth injuries.
  • Improper drug prescriptions.

 

Time Limitations

If you or a loved one has been injured by medical malpractice, it is important to take prompt action. There are strict time deadlines that must be followed. If you fail to meet these deadlines you will lose your right to file a claim.

 

We know that we can’t undo the harm that you have suffered or take away your pain. We can however, hold the parties that caused your injuries accountable for their actions. We have been successfully handling medical malpractice cases for decades, and we know what it takes to be successful. We are passionate about obtaining justice for our clients and getting them the compensation they deserve. Call us today to schedule a free consultation at 310-322-0300 or toll free at 877-664-5407.
