California MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAWYER AND MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE ATTORNEY
Medical Malpractice is the term used to describe the negligence committed by a doctor, nurse or health care professional when providing care to a patient. Malpractice is said to occur when the health care in question fails to meet the standard of care which applies to any health care professional in that field of practice.
Some examples of malpractice include:
- failing to timely diagnose a serious condition
- improperly performing surgery
- failing to properly monitor a patient’s condition
- prescribing or giving the wrong or incorrect amount of medication
- incorrectly interpreting the results of diagnostic tests
Medical malpractice is a highly complex area of the law. Malpractice attorneys must have legal expertise combined with a great deal of medical knowledge. Every day doctors, hospitals and other health care professionals commit medical negligence that results in traumatic injury to others. Unfortunately, medical malpractice cases are complicated by a variety of factors that make them difficult to prove and win.
Farahi Law Firm believes that doctors, dentists, nurses and other healthcare providers should always meet acceptable standards of care at the very minimum. They are obliged by law and professional ethics to provide care according to accepted standards. When those standards are not met and an injury or death results, they can and should be held liable for damages.
