Medical Malpractice Claims in Los Angeles

Doctors, nurses, physical therapists, and other medical professionals in Los Angeles and California are expected to help save people’s lives. However, this is not the case at times. As it is, some medical practitioners intentionally or unintentionally injure or kill their patients.

Such acts in which medical professionals fail to provide the needed service are called medical malpractice. As professionals, people have great expectations with them to perform their duties competently.

Medical malpractice happens when:

  • The medical practitioner fails to provide the right standard of care. “Standard of care” is a doctrine that ensures that all medical practitioners are knowledgeable and can offer a certain level of care to their patients.
  • If a physician, nurse, or any medical practitioner fails to observe proper care, he or she can be held liable for the injuries that the patients will sustain. The same is true when the inability to observe standard of care resulted in the patient’s death. If any of these unfortunate events happen to a patient, his or her family can sue the medical professional concerned, as well as the hospital where he or she is confined, and demand for damages such as financial assistance to compensate for the resulting injury or death.
  • The medical practitioner’s negligence. This often stems from the first condition provided above. Basically, when a medical practitioner takes the Hippocratic Oath and receives his or her medical license, he or she swears to give the best medical care possible to his or her patients. There are certain times, however, when a medical professional fails to provide so due to negligence, intentional or not. When the patient’s injuries or death happened due to the negligence of a medical practitioner, the latter may be sued for medical malpractice.

Proving medical malpractice

As it is, medical malpractice claims can be very complex and difficult to prove. The primary reason for this is that they involve gauging the doctor’s performance on a specific medical treatment. Unlike determining if someone ran a red light that caused an accident or spilled water on the floor and caused someone to slip; determining liability in a medical malpractice claim often requires analysis of many differing expert opinions. The said process can therefore be very subjective.
