Medical Malpractice refers to negligence caused by a health care professional or institution that led to injury, harm or death of a patient. Doctors, health care professionals and medical facilities have a duty to uphold a standard of care. If they fail to meet the standard of care than they are liable for damages that you have sustained.
Medical Malpractice cases are often complex and many personal injury firms do not take such cases due to the litigation costs involved and the capped recovery amounts for victims of medical malpractice.
STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CLAIMS
The statute of limitations for medical malpractice is codified under California Code of Civil Procedure section 340.5 which states that the case must be brought “within one year after the plaintiff discovers, or through the use of reasonable diligence should have discovered the injury” or within three years of the date of the injury whichever comes first.” Thus, under California if you know of an injury caused by a medical professional or institution, than you have 1 year to file a lawsuit. It is very important to contact a lawyer immediately when you believe malpractice has occurred.
WHY DO YOU NEED A MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEY?
Insurance companies use tactics and find loopholes to protect the interests of their insured. They will typically deny liability or give you very little compensation for your injuries. Further, insurance companies spend large amounts of money hiring experts to protect their position and deny liability for medical malpractice claims.
