Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is a terrible way to be injured. You expect your doctors, nurses and other health care professionals to help you recover from an illness or injury, not to be the cause of the illness or injury. Nonetheless, preventable medical deaths have been likened to the equivalent of two jumbo jets crashing every week of the year, so you need to be alert and aware of the risks.

We Can Help You Obtain Compensation

At Therese Harris Law Offices, our attorney knows how to help. We understand you may be uncertain how to proceed, may still be in pain, may be in the hospital and trying to figure out what went wrong. Medical malpractice cases in California are often complex, and it can be challenging to identify what the error was and who the responsible parties were.

Medical Treatment Always Has Risk

For most treatments, that risk should not be unreasonable. When something goes wrong, knowing whether it was negligence can be difficult. There may have been one error or multiple errors. Sometimes it's a misdiagnosis, where they fail to recognize the problem. They send you home, and your condition deteriorates and become critical. Sometimes the mistake is a chain of events. They may fail to treat a critical issue like a heart attack, leading to catastrophic injury.

Other medical malpractice may involve wrong-site surgery, where a surgeon performs an operation on the wrong organ or limb. Surgical teams often leave tools or other surgical equipment behind when operating on a person. Prescription drug errors are another issue. A doctor may prescribe the wrong drug, or a nurse may make an error in filling that prescription, giving a patient the wrong medication.

We want you to recover from your injuries. At our firm, we can help you understand the full extent of your injuries, the type of compensation that may be available, and what you need to do to stay on track and on the road to recovery.
