Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Medical Malpractice is a legal action that occurs when a medical or health care professional changes ordinary course from standards in his or her profession, thereby causing injury to a patient.
Unlike other types of personal injury cases, Medical Malpractice cases are based on the medical records and medical expert testimony; this is necessary to prove your case.
The attorney hired must understand medical procedures and the law to prepare the most compelling case for you. Your attorney must work closely with retained expert medical witnesses whose testimony is essential for any successful medical malpractice or negligence case against medical practitioners, including physicians, surgeons, psychiatrists, dentists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and others in the medical industry.
Timeframe specified for filing medical malpractice lawsuits is set by laws called statute of limitations. This timeframe varies per state, in California per the code of civil procedure section 340.5, states that medical malpractice cases 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. The statue is complicated, and ultimately, you need to speak with an attorney to reserve your rights.
