Medical Malpractice

Encino Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Pursuing the Justice You Deserve

Hospitals and health care facilities are places where people go to get appropriate treatment and care for their health issues. Patients ordinarily expect to leave the facility in better condition than when they entered or at least know what’s causing their health problem.

Medical and health care providers, however, can make mistakes that can result in serious injuries, leaving a devastating impact on the injured patient and their family. Researchers at Johns Hopkins University said that medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States, killing about 251,000 persons each year. This means that a lot of people are dying or suffering serious injury from the care they receive rather than the disease for which they sought care. Our Encino medical malpractice attorneys have decades of experience holding professionals responsible for negligence and aren’t afraid to go up against doctors and medical institutions to secure the compensation you’re entitled to.

Common Cases of Medical Malpractice

Most medical errors causing serious injuries are caused by:

  • Nurses or hospital personnel giving potent drugs or medication intended for another patient to the wrong patient
  • Surgeons removing the wrong body parts
  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose
  • Failure to diagnose cancer
  • Improper medication, prescription errors, or diagnosis
  • Failure to properly treat a health condition
  • Emergency room, physician, or nurse negligence
  • Failure to monitor a patient or improper medical attention
  • Failure to resuscitate
  • Foreign objects left in the body during a surgical procedure
  • Nursing home neglect (e.g. bed sores, malnutrition, and dehydration)
  • Childbirth injuries
  • Anesthesia errors

California Medical Malpractice Injury Law

California rules of civil procedure section 340.5 require an injured party to bring a case for medical malpractice within one year from the injured party’s discovery of the injury or within three years of the date of the injury, whichever is earlier. If you file your medical malpractice lawsuit beyond the statutory period for filing, you will lose your right to claim compensation for your injuries against the negligent party.

Additionally, the rules also require that you formally notify the other party of your intention to file a medical malpractice lawsuit at least 90 days before the case is filed.

Indeed, medical malpractice cases are highly complex, requiring a good grasp of court procedures and tort law. It is important to find an attorney or law firm that has experience in these matters. At Binder Law Group, our Encino medical malpractice attorneys have been helping people in the Los Angeles, California, area for almost 50 years with their medical malpractice legal problems.

Achieving the Results You Deserve

It is possible for the other party to argue that you are partly to blame for your injuries. For instance, your doctor may claim that you failed to follow a doctor’s instructions, which caused serious complications or other injuries. Raising the defense of comparative negligence is often used as a strategy to diminish any award for damages in your favor.

Our law firm is prepared to fight for your rights and to utilize all resources to protect your legal rights. We hire the best experts to establish the cause of your injuries and the standard of care that your doctor or health care professional has the duty to provide.

Medical errors in hospitals and health care facilities can prevent you from working and living your life the way it used to be. Many of these errors are preventable with the exercise of due care by the persons entrusted with your health and physical welfare.

If you have been seriously injured because of the negligence of a health care professional or facility, contact our office to find out how we can help you. Schedule a free initial consultation our friendly Encino medical malpractice lawyers by calling (818) 740-7667.
