Uncovering The Causes Of Medical Mistakes
Medical mistakes can cost patients their lives. Uncovering the causes of those mistakes is a complex process, but necessary when pursuing a medical malpractice claim.
If you or someone close to you has suffered due to a medical mistake in California, I am here to offer you the experienced representation you need. I have more than 30 years of experience serving clients in San Diego, throughout California and nationwide.
One of the most common medical mistakes is surgical error. Errors in the operating room can include:
- Improper or incomplete pre-surgical preparation
- Nicked arteries and organs
- Leaving surgical instruments, sponges and other objects behind in the patient
- Unnecessary surgery
- Wrong-site surgery
- Failure to treat infections after surgery
I work thoroughly and proactively to uncover the causes of surgical errors and other medical mistakes. By establishing the facts, I can negotiate from a position of strength or capably represent my clients at trial.
Nurses generally have more hands-on time with patients and serve as the intermediary between doctor and patient. Nursing malpractice can involve:
- Medication errors
- Failure to monitor the patient
- Failure to treat infections
- Failure to prevent falls
- Failure to record and communicate critical information
Other Medical Mistakes
Mistakes can occur at any phase of medical treatment, by any medical professional. I am prepared to handle cases involving negligence by doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pharmacists and any medical professional whose negligence resulted in a serious injury or wrongful death of a patient.
