What is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice refers to negligence committed by health care providers who violate the standard of care mandated by the government in providing aid or care to patients. These medical providers could be the doctors, nurses, nurse aids, radiology technicians and other medical service care providers.
If you are not properly treated, mistreated by your medical care provider, failed to be diagnosed, misdiagnosed or provided the wrong treatment or operation for your injuries, then you are a victim of medical malpractice.
Value of Your Case
The value of your case depends upon the quantum or evidence or proof you can present in the negotiations table or in the proper courts of law. California law subscribes to the “collateral source rule”, which means that the amount that you can receive for all your documented damages are not limited to the limits of insurance coverage of the party at fault. If the insurance coverage is not enough, then the actual liable party is held liable for the balance of your claims.
Also, the value of your case does not only relate to your actual costs as the law provides compensation for pain and suffering and other non-monetary losses. The other party can even be liable for punitive damages in cases where it is established that he acted in abject disregard of the welfare of the patient.
When Can You File Your Claim?
As a personal injury victim, you should immediately file your claim for damages against the party at fault at the first instance that you realize that you are being wronged. In California, you only have 3 years from the time that the injury occurs or one year from the date you discover the injury caused by the medical practice, whichever is earlier.
If you failed, within the said time frame, to pursue your claim, you will forever be barred from seeking damages for the incident. Hence, don’t sit on your right and immediately seek legal help to aid you in claiming the best compensation you deserve.
