Healthcare providers such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and physician’s assistants must take care to uphold the appropriate standard of care when treating patients. While most of these professionals take this responsibility seriously, some do not and their patients are injured as a result.
In California, as in most states, a medical malpractice lawsuit is typically more complex than other injury-related claims (such as a claim arising from a car accident, for example). And it’s not just because legal issues and medical evidence can get very complicated very quickly. For that reason, it’s in your best interest to contact an attorney to discuss your particular case.
