Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Orange County

Medical malpractice happens when a patient suffers injuries in the hands of the doctor or other medical professionals. This happens when a medical professional fails to provide the standard level of medical care mandated to care for a patient. Not everybody is aware of the fact that medical negligence happens at different stages of the treatment process. Medical negligence incidents may happen right from the initial examination or diagnosis stage. It may even occur during application of treatments or even during recommendation for post-operative or rehabilitation care. If you or any member of your family is injured due to the negligence of the medical professional who is supposed to treat you or care for you, you need to seek immediate legal advice from the best California medical malpractice lawyer who is familiar with the medical terms, processes and treatment procedures. Medical treatments performed by medical professionals are very technical and incomprehensible to those unlearned or unfamiliar with the profession. Aside from this, the legal process in claiming damages, if ever there's a case for one, is also complex and can be daunting to those who are not adept in tackling the technical rules in pursuing medical misconduct cases against the parties at fault. Hence, if you believe that you have a case for a medical negligence claim, seeking immediate legal advice from your trusted personal injury lawyer is your only solution to protect you and your family from further harm.

How To Prove Your Medical Malpractice Case?

Medical negligence is different from the usual traffic accident cases and personal injury cases that happen on a daily basis because of the fact that it is not easily detected and the purported perpetrators or the parties at fault sometimes are the only ones who can determine if in fact, medical negligence or malpractice occurred. The question, in every patient's mind, is how do they know they have a case for medical misconduct because, usually, a patient cannot separate the pain from his injuries from the pain caused by the malpractice. This is where OC Injury Defenders's expert medical malpractice attorneys in California come in. There are several basic requirements that a victim needs to establish in order to make sure that he can establish a valid claim, and they are:

  • 1. Existence of doctor-patient relationship - The medical malpractice victim should establish that there is an actual doctor-patient relationship that exists between them before the standard level of medical care mandated by the profession can be invoked and the lack thereof;
  • 2. Proof of doctor's negligence - This is hard to establish because the patient already had medical problems prior to the alleged medical malpractice injuries. To sue for medical malpractice, it is not enough that the patient was unhappy with the treatments received. It must be established that the doctor failed to provide the diligence, skill and care required of him by his profession in treating the patient; and
  • 3. Doctor's negligence resulted in the injury to the patient - Causal connection between the doctor's negligence or lack of care and the resulting injury to the patient should be proved or established. Specific injuries should be established and separated from the injuries of the patient for which he was being treated.

As you can see, it is very difficult to establish a medical malpractice case, which is why it is never a good idea to negotiate your medical malpractice case on your own or hire a general personal injury that is not adept in pursuing actual medical malpractice cases.

If you believe that you are a victim of medical misconduct committed by your doctor, your only option is to contact OC Injury Defenders's highly skilled California medical malpractice attorneys to help you decide whether you have an actual case and to meticulously establish all the requirements mandated by law before you are able to successfully file a law suit against the party at fault. Even if proof exists that an actual medical negligence occurred, there are still legal hurdles that a patient must overcome in order to be able to claim damages against the party at fault. If you are a victim of medical negligence you need to file your law suit at a specified period of time, otherwise you'll be barred from ever claiming damages for your injuries. This is called statute of limitations. Aside from this, there are states that require that the patient provide notice to the doctor of the possible misconduct and/or prove medical negligence case with a special medical malpractice review panel. Last, but not the least, in every medical malpractice law suit, expert testimony of persons from the same profession is required to establish that the care provided was either substandard or outright incorrect.
