Los Angeles Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Protecting the Rights of Medical Malpractice Victims in L.A.
When medical treatment is needed for any condition, we don't often consider that our lives will be endangered by the care administered, whether by a doctor, nurse, surgeon, or other professional. It is clear that many types of medical conditions and illnesses are so serious that a treatment, even when correctly administered, has inherent danger to the patient. All surgical procedures have some risk, as is true with a large number of treatments for a wide variety of medical conditions.
Most physicians and other medical personnel are committed to providing the highest level of treatment that they can, under the pressures of accidents, illnesses or serious conditions. There are also cases in which the medical professional failed to provide the standard level of care, made errors or other breach of duty to the patient. When an injury, illness, serious condition or death is the result of a breach of duty, it is crucial that you contact Los Angeles medical malpractice attorney Steven J. Weinberg. Mr. Weinberg has an impressive record in fighting for the rights of injured patients in a variety of medical malpractice cases. He has recovered millions of dollars in settlements, judgments and verdicts throughout his years in practice, and can evaluate your case to advise you how to proceed with a lawsuit. Attorney Weinberg has been

Superior Legal Services - Unparalleled by any Competitor
There are a large variety of types of medical errors that could be grounds for a lawsuit, including failures to diagnose serious illnesses, surgical errors, anesthesia errors, prescription or medication errors and countless others that result in serious injury to an innocent patient. It is crucial that an attorney gets involved in such cases early, as preserving evidence of medical malpractice will be crucial with regard to the outcome of the case. A Los Angeles medical malpractice attorney at our firm will carefully manage every aspect of the case, and gather evidence to support a case of negligence or breach of duty.
A large majority of medical malpractice suits surround birth, obstetrics, gynecology, surgical procedures and cases in which the victim was treated by emergency room medical personnel. These cases can be very complex and often expensive to bring to a final resolution. Doctors, hospitals and clinics have malpractice insurance that allows them to be defended when they are accused of any form of negligence. The insurance companies provide attorneys to defend against claims of malpractice, and negotiating with these insurance companies prior to trial is an important part of the process of recovering compensation in settlements for injured victims.
Some doctors and health care plans like Kaiser require their patients to submit their medical malpractice claims to binding arbitration before retired judges instead of juries. This can result in decreased litigation time and cost, while still providing victims with an effective means to receive fair compensation.
The laws surrounding medical malpractice cases are different than those that apply to personal injury cases such as those in car accidents. State law allows for a specific period of time in which to file under the statute of limitations. Protecting your right to recover compensation after being injured through malpractice is a critical matter, and it is advised that you act as quickly as possible in contacting the firm to avoid losing the opportunity to file suit.
