SAN DIEGO MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEY

Medical malpractice is professional negligence by a healthcare provider that causes further injury, death or new injury to a patient. At Traffic Accident Law Center, our attorneys have represented numerous clients over the years in medical malpractice claims. Our attorneys are experienced at representing people injured due to a medical negligence.

Due to our dedication to client service, our ability to recover damages and monetary compensation for our clients in medical malpractice cases equals our ability to clearly explain the complex issues commonly effecting professional malpractice claims to our clients. We handle medical malpractice cases which include:

  • Birth Injuries
  • Negligence in Pharmaceutical Drugs
  • Negligence in Medical Devices
  • Unnecessary Surgery
  • Medication Errors
  • Hospital Errors
  • Failure to Properly Diagnose Conditions
  • And much more.

Medical malpractice incidents are responsible for almost 100,000 wrongful deaths every year, even more than the number of people who die from car accidents. That is why it’s so important to have a top-notch medical malpractice attorney by your side should you be involved in such an incident. Our attorneys regularly work with expert medical professionals in a variety of fields, including obstetricians, gynecologists, family doctors, surgeons, medical investigators and more. Our contacts have helped many clients investigate malpractice claims and achieve the best possible results for their claims. For example:

One of our clients injured his ankle on an off-road vehicle and went to his doctor who thought it was an ankle sprain but shot an x-ray to rule out a fracture. The x-ray was improperly taken and failed to properly show the bones of the ankle. The doctor misdiagnosed the injury as a sprain since the fracture could not been seen on the x-ray. When the fracture was uncovered, the patient had to undergo surgery with an orthopedic specialist and a portion of the fracture could not be saved. We litigated this case and achieved a recovery for our client.

Unfortunately, in this era of managed care when patient treatment is too often shortened by a view toward profitability over patient care, errors like the one outlined above happen frequently. Our law firm will aggressively fight for your rights, and for your interests. Our years of experience has helped clients pay their bills while out of work, deal with medical costs and cover the cost of surgeries to fix the medical malpractice error.
