Sacramento Medical Misdiagnosis Lawyer
Misdiagnosis is a type of medical malpractice or medical negligence that involves a doctor mistaking one medical condition for another. If you were the victim of misdiagnosis and were injured as a result, you may have the foundation for a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit against the responsible party. A Sacramento medical malpractice attorney at Pacific Attorney Group can meet with you to talk about what occurred and how you can seek financial damages for medical care and other damages associated with what you have experienced.
Misdiagnosis & Medical Malpractice
When a patient is admitted complaining of certain symptoms, it is the doctor's responsibility to evaluate these, talk to the patient about what is occurring and order tests to determine exactly what is going on. If it cannot immediately be established what illness or injury a patient may be suffering from, the doctor should order additional tests or perhaps recommend a consultation from a specialist in a particular field of medicine. If a doctor is negligent or careless, however, he or she may misdiagnose a patient's medical condition, leading to serious injury.
A misdiagnosed illness or injury may mean that a patient will undergo unnecessary surgery, will be administered the wrong medicine or will be treated improperly. In some cases, this may cause irreparable damage, a permanent disability or even lead to the wrongful death of the patient. Taking action in civil court grants the patient or family of the patient the opportunity to hold the responsible doctor legally accountable for what he or she has done. This is particularly important in serious medical misdiagnosis cases, such as those involving cancer misdiagnosis, emergency room misdiagnosis, and heart attack misdiagnosis.

Our Practice Area
Medical malpractice claims are often the most complex civil cases to deal with. Although based in the common foundation that a doctor or other medical professional made a mistake or otherwise failed to provide proper care, proving medical malpractice and recovering financial damages goes far beyond this. It will be necessary to establish that the treatment you received was substandard in some way, and to do this your attorney will most likely have to involve medical professionals who can testify as expert witnesses to prove that the medical care provided was not up to current standards.

Medical Malpractice in Sacramento
A birth injury, or childbirth injury, may be described as any physical injury that a baby sustains during labor or the delivery process. The mother's health, preexisting complications, and the size and position of the baby in the womb may all influence whether a child will suffer birth injuries.
Sacramento Hospital Error Lawyer
Have you suffered injury due to an error or any type of malpractice in a hospital setting? This may be grounds for a medical malpractice claim against the Sacramento hospital where your injury occurred.
Doctor Errors and Mistakes
People make mistakes every day. We are not perfect, and you cannot expect perfection from a human prone to errors due to emotions, illness, inexperience and weariness. That is why doctor errors are a common form of medical malpractice.
Failure to Diagnose
Diagnosing medical conditions is the initial part of any medical care that a physician will provide. It will be necessary to determine what illness or injury a patient has sustained in order to then provide proper treatment or prescribe the medication that will resolve the problem.
Sacramento Nursing Errors
Not all instances of medical malpractice are traced directly back to a doctor. In fact, nurses play an important role in hospitals and all medical facilities, acting as the eyes and ears of doctors and advocates for patients.
I just settled my first case with Mr. Shayani and he gave me the best settlement I could ever ask for. He has worked really hard on my case for 2 years to give me the best outcome, and he definitely came through. I don't think any other attorney could have done what he did to get me the best settlement. I HIGHLY recommend Payam Shayani for any personal injury case. The only downfall is that it took a long time for him to settle my case, but it was all worth it at the end.Debbie R. - Moreno Valley, CA
My Father hired Pacific Attorney Group to help him with a serious accident case for which He needed surgery. Mr. Shayani and his staff are very knowledgeable about big accident cases. His experience has been great with them. They are super aggressive and fight the insurance company to get maximum settlement. I highly recommend them if you had a big injury accident case. Also special thanks to sweet Talin Mahmoodi, their case manager. She's been always helpful and nice!!!Mel - Glendale, CA
