Frequently Asked Questions

Sacramento Medical Malpractice

What are some types of medical malpractice? Medical malpractice may be described as any act of negligence or failure to provide proper care for a patient, committed by a medical professional and that causes injury to a patient. Misdiagnosis of a medical condition, medication errors, childbirth injuries, surgical errors, nursing errors, emergency room errors and doctor errors are all examples of medical malpractice.

How do I know that the doctor did not provide proper care? It may be difficult at times to determine exactly how a doctor failed to provide proper care to a patient. To establish this aspect of your Sacramento medical malpractice claim, our law firm will typically involve the services of a medical professional to provide expert testimony regarding the incident and what the doctor did that constituted negligent care.

What are the main parts of a medical malpractice claim? A medical malpractice case typically has three primary parts: negligence, injury and causation. A victim will need to prove that 1) the doctor was negligent and failed to provide proper care, 2) that the patient was injured, and 3) that the doctor's conduct led to the patient's injuries.

What financial damages can I receive for my Sacramento medical malpractice case? Although the specific damages awarded in a medical malpractice claim in Sacramento will vary depending on the case, a victim may be entitled to the following damages: medical bills, future medical care, lost wages, lost potential earnings, and emotional damages.

Will I have to go to court? Most medical malpractice cases are settled outside of court. This is often in the best interests of both parties, as a court battle may be drawn out and extremely expensive. However, if your claim simply cannot be settled outside of court, we will take your case to the next level in order to seek the financial compensation we believe you rightfully deserve.
